Letter to the editor: Cornwall group gives thanks

The Friends of Cornwall School (FOCS) would like to thank everyone who helped make our second annual Town Meeting Breakfast on Saturday, March 2, a success. As usual, community members were able to catch up while enjoying an affordable, delicious meal before attending the town meeting. Then anyone attending the meeting had access to a variety of beverages and pastries.

First we want to thank Cornwall School and ACSD for once again making the desired space available in the school for us this year. Thank you to Chef Dan Whittemore for all his hard work preparing and serving the meal. We also want to recognize all the parents who helped make this meal the success that it was. Thank you to the First Congregational Church of Cornwall for again letting us borrow many dishes from your kitchen, and to the generous community members who provided containers to help transport those dishes.

In order to maintain a profitable, affordable meal, we seek to get as many items as possible donated for these events. With that in mind, we want to thank North Hollow Farm for supplying some sausage and Stonewood Farm for providing turkey sausage this year. We are grateful to Maple Meadow Farm for the egg donation, and to Monument Farm for donating several gallons of milk. We also very much appreciate the donations of potatoes from Burnt Rock Farm, maple syrup from Bread Loaf View Farm, apple cider and cider doughnuts from Sunrise Orchards, and honey from Lemon Fair Honeyworks. Middlebury Floral & Gifts and Cole’s Flowers donated the flowers for our centerpieces. The donations of dry and non-perishable goods from Middlebury Hannaford and a gift card from the Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op were also very helpful.

Lastly, we would like to thank the whole Cornwall community for its continued support. You help to make our efforts possible and worthwhile. What profits we made will help fulfill the FOCS mission of supporting the Bingham Memorial School students through intra- and extra-curricular efforts and activities.
