To the Editor,

The members of our American Cancer Society Relay for Life team, “Phil’s Fighters,” would like to thank the community for the great turnout at our quarter auction on Saturday, April 12. We truly appreciate the generosity of the businesses that supported us by participating and donating items. Thank you to these participating vendors who made this event possible:

Sapling Naturals, Pampered Chef, Caryn King Studio, Silpada, Mary Kay, Arbonne, Bernard’s Maple Syrup, and Scentsy.

Next, we want to thank the following businesses and community members who weren’t able to have a vendor table, but donated auction items: Chapman’s Antiques, Pickwell’s Barn, Electrolysis by Michelle, Robert Lefebvre Clocks and Cribbage Boards, Lavigne Photography, The Vermont Bowl Company, Incurable Romantic, Normajean Marchegiani, Metcalfe’s Maple Cream Liqueur, Bartleby’s Books, Wilmington Candle Company, and Dot’s Restaurant.

Thank you to all who brought in goodies for our bake sale. The food was amazing! We would also like to thank the Twin Valley High School for allowing us to use the building.

Our auctioneer, Donnie Sprague, donated his time to helping fight cancer, as well. Thanks, Donnie, for an entertaining afternoon.

Last, but certainly not least, thank you to the great group of people in attendance! You helped us raise more than $1,000 to “Finish the Fight” against cancer, and we are so grateful for each of you.

We are already looking forward to next year’s event!

On behalf of the team of Trent, Emily, Stephanie, Taylor, and Brandon,

Tanya Bernard
