To the Editor:

Exactly one year ago we unlocked the door of the old Mobil Station on Depot Street in Manchester to begin its transformation from a greasy under-used filling station into the new Garden Arts Fresh Market and Country Store. Now, after our premier holiday season, we've got a moment to reflect on all the wonderful people who have come into our life through this fun project.

Thank you to our landscaping and fencing foremen who did the reconstruction, built our cool store fixtures, and painted the building. Thank you to the plumbers, electricians, and techies who got our systems running. Thank you to our community of farmers and food producers who stock our Market. Thank you all the wonderful people who come to work every day to make the whole thing run. And finally, a huge thank you to the community of residents, travelers, and great people who brighten our store so frequently as they come in to get gas, shop, or just to say hello.

2013 will be a wonderful year for the Fresh Market as we continue to stock the local and specialty products our customers want. And we hope that the New Year will bring good health, joy, and complete satisfaction to all who are in our universe. Peace on Earth! Love to you all.

Steve Burzon Owner, Garden Arts Company Manchester
