To the Editor: Three cheers and a loud hip-hip-hooray! to the wonderful volunteers, local business owners, and art teachers who made the Southern Vermont Arts Center's Young Picassos Pizza Party a truly fun-filled (and delicious!) highlight of this spring's "Art from the Schools" exhibition.

We send a huge thank you to everyone who hung artwork, inflated balloons, sliced pizza, served food, brewed punch, set up art activities, provided music, and helped clean up! Thank you so much especially to Norman and Sandy Dovberg, Matthew Lerman and Barbara Zapin, Luanne Hardy, Diane Olsson, Emy LeVecchia, Steven Schlussel, Burr and Burton Academy students (Emma, Rebecca and Alexi - great job!), the Long Trail Band and the girls' A Capella Group.

For the bounty of delectable treats we thank Al Ducci's, Christos', The Gourmet Deli, The Little Rooster Cafe, Manchester Pizza House, Mother Myricks, Mulligans, The Perfect Wife, Price Chopper, Rachel's Gourmet Foods, Shaw's, Spiral Press Cafe, Wildflowers, and Wood Fired Pizza Co.

I look forward to this wonderful event for many years to come!
