Thanks for the help

To the Editor:

On behalf of the South Londonderry Free Library the Gigantic Tag Sale Committee - Gun Burns, Laura Megros and Mary Sikes - would like to thank all participants and volunteers for making the Second Annual Street Fair such a huge success and for being so flexible with the date change. Everyone worked hard preparing and running the event making it a winner for the Library. Many thanks to all the vendors and to our volunteers who spent the day parking cars and selling hot dogs, white elephant items, baked goods, plants and books. A special thanks to the Town Office staff for their willing assistance and support.

Many thanks to Equipe Sports that provided a Guess the Number puzzle and to Wilcox Dairy and Clark's Quality Foods for providing ice cream, hot dogs and cold drinks.

In addition to the "booth" fee from the vendors, we received hundreds of donations to sell at the White Elephant Table from friends and patrons of the library. The sale of these donations, food and books helped triple the profit from last year. We were all lucky that the weatherman finally provided us with a day of sunshine.

Besides Laura, Gun and Mary (the original instigators) all the other Trustees of the Library - Margie Malko, Paul Myers, Ginny Noor, Bret Upton, Jan Gordon and Mimi Wright did an amazing amount of work. They are a dedicated, wonderful Board! Thanks goes out to all including the twelve students from Burr & Burton Academy Mountain Campus who were a tremendous help moving books - appreciation to Pastor Margaret for recommending them - and those who helped behind the scene and on the day: Rob Willis, Rich Malko, Kit Sikes, Maureen Cronin, Minor Clark, Dalen Cole, Geff Newell, Richard Squires, Emily Underwood, Cory Stoddard, Yukiko, Peter Cornell, John Lingley, Vaughn Clark, Glen Whitten, Peggy Upton, Eva Calabrese, Susie Wyman and Earl Melendy. If we missed anyone you are doubly thanked.

We are already anticipating next year's event and hope that everyone will plan on joining us again.
