Thank You for making the Patio Ribbon Cutting a Success
On Sunday April 30th we had a wonderfully home grown and very sweet celebration of our renovations and new patio. Parents, kids, members old and new, patrons and even our local politicians came to help us celebrate. Thank you all for coming.
And now I would like to thank each and every person who made it happen. It took lots of time and lots of work. Thank you to:
- Wendy Portney for her work with the brick company and Hewitt Landscaping.
- David Julin for his beautiful work on the patio plantings and decorations… and thanks too to Pedro and Louise, his lovely assistants.
- Rob Ward for his building the display case and to Mike Gnazzo for lighting it up.
- Debbi Fleckentstein, Nancy Logan, Mariann Felice, Evelyn Russo, Beverly Huff and Penny Buccafuri for their baking and work on the reception.
- Janet Fenton and Bridget Clark for that designer patio cake.
- Larry Beckerle, Neil Goldstein and Ralph Felice for guiding us through this renovation in all its phases.
- Steve Taylor for being the master of ceremonies and for reaching out to our supporters Ellen Jaffe and Harriet Cornell to join us.
- Omar Kozarsky, Scott Nangle, and Margaret Young for recording the event with pictures.
I hope I have not left anyone out…
Thank you one and all.
