Note of appreciation: Thanks to yard sale helpers

Our family would like to thank the community for the success of the 2nd Annual Indoor Yard Sale, held at the American Legion in Middlebury, Feb. 16. We raised over $5,000. All proceeds go to benefit the Brendon P. Cousino  Med47 Foundation.
We are grateful for the generosity of all who donated items and so thankful for friends and family that worked tirelessly to help make this event the success it was. A special thanks to Koffee Kup Bakery, Mackenzie Natural  Meats, Hannaford Supermarkets, Silver Maple Construction and Hall  communications. And yes, it wouldn’t have been anything without you, the shoppers that came out in droves.
Our family set up this Foundation to continue Brendon’s legacy of giving. Brendon was the young EMT from Richmond killed in a tragic car accident on I-89 in 2015. Brendon had a real heart for being in rescue, and 47 was his call number. He was also a master carpenter.
The Foundation awards scholarships to deserving Patricia Hannaford Career Center students entering the trades. This is where Brendon found his love of building and protective service.
We also give funds to area Rescue and 1st Response groups. This will be an annual event and we look forward to building community again next year.
Cindy and Gary Cousino
