Letter to the editor: Carnevale Vergennes was a success thanks to supporters
With deep gratitude, I’d like to publicly thank the many, many supporters of the 6th Annual Carnevale Vergennes. Held on Saturday, March 2, at the Vergennes Opera House, the sell-out crowd was entertained with costumes, games, aerialists, music and more.
Sincere thanks to the attendees as well as the people, businesses and organizations that made the evening possible: Jeniah Johnson and Tom Sheeran, Andrew and Jeff Fritz, “In Memory of Garry Simpson, the grandfather of the Opera House restoration,” National Bank of Middlebury, Gary Lange Law Office, NFP Property & Casualty Insurance (formerly Foote’s Insurance), Moriah Houndsell Photography, Rice Lumber, media sponsor WVTK 92.1, Addison Repertory Theater at Hannaford Career Center, Kurt Plank of North Station Millworks, Dana Ambrose Photography, The Schaefer Family, RPM: Restoration Performance Motorcars and the Markowski Family, H.J. LeBoeuf & Sons Contractors and Builders, Vergennes Animal Hospital, Lizbeth and Timothy Ryan, Amanda Bodell and Jeffry Glassberg and Jackman Fuels. Also, thank you to the small army of volunteers who kept the evening rolling smoothly along. A very special thank you to our signature sponsor WhistlePig Rye Whiskey.
We also appreciate the local businesses that assisted that evening: 3 Squares Cafe, Bar Antidote, Basin Harbor, Comfort Hill Kennel, Dakin Farm, Daily Chocolate, Everywear for Everybody, Malabar, Shear Cuts and Vergennes Animal Hospital.
In the past six years this event has raised more than $100,000, supporting the Vergennes Opera House, Vergennes Partnership and Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes. The three organizations play a vital role in Vergennes and beyond.
