Note of appreciation: Thanks to all who make Peasant Market a success

On behalf of the members of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church we would like to extend our thanks to the many people who made the Peasant Market possible this year. The weather cooperated as well on Saturday, July 31. Volunteers helped shoppers find treasures and a gorgeous, festive day was enjoyed by all while raising funds for local nonprofits in our community. Win-win-win!

Special thanks to the Festival-on-the-Green for sharing their big tent

with us, Broughton’s for help with tents, Dundon’s for the port-a-lets, Casella for the dumpsters and trash receptacles, The Addison Independent and the Little Pressroom for help with publicity, JET Landscaping and Middlebury College for help with the tables, and to the National Bank of Middlebury for permitting us to display one of our handcrafted wooden boats in their Main Street window.

Thanks to all who bid in our silent auction for the two handcrafted boats. The bidding continued until Aug. 6 at 7:50 p.m. when the winners were declared at the Festival-on-the-Green.

We appreciate the goodwill and fellowship that this event demonstrates in our community and we welcome the opportunity to give back in this way. Thanks again!
