Opinion: Many in Bridport helped with the suppers
The eighth year of the Bridport Community Supper program has ended for the 2015-2016 winter season. Our suppers are provided free of charge to the community every Friday night mid-November to mid-April. We served 2,442 meals over the 21 weeks at the Bridport Grange Hall. Wow, what a rewarding season.
We wish to thank so many for their support. The following provided meals this past season that make these suppers tasty: Bridport Central School Board, Bridport Central School Faculty and Staff, Bridport Central School PTO, Bridport Congregational Church, Bridport Grange, Bridport Masons, Champlain Valley Insurance Agency, Middlebury College IVCF, Middlebury College Newman Club, Middlebury Self Storage, Mike’s Fuels, Middlebury Lions Club & Misty Knoll, Pratt’s Store, Randy Orvis, Moose Rubbish & Recycling, St. Bernadette’s Parish and Town Line First Response.
In addition to those listed above, there are countless others who we could not get along without. They all play their part in helping build a stronger community: Broughton’s Farm Supply, Randy and Barb Palmer, Northlands Job Corps students and the Bridport Fire Department.
New this year we welcomed the Pitch Benders String Band live musical entertainment. They found us and we can’t be happier. We look forward to them returning next year.
Last but not least, we wish to thank those who come and dine with us. Without you this would totally be fruitless. Your donations, friendly smiles, fabulous conversations and attendance make this all worthwhile for everyone involved. We are truly blessed to have made new friends ourselves and to foster others relationships in our wonderful community.
We plan to begin serving again every Friday night next fall. See you then.
