It’s been a terrific 10 years of Twin Valley Jr. Iron Chef. We’ve had great experiences, won a bunch of awards and have helped our kids learn some lasting life skills.
We could not have done it without the help and contributions of many people and businesses. It takes a village to raise a child and it takes a community to support the Jr. Iron Chef program.
This year we had above and beyond support from: Jane and Don Boyd, Grafton Village Cheese, Deerfield Valley Rotary, Boyd Family Farm, WW Building Supply, The Deerfield Valley News, Mount Snow, Twin Valley Booster Club, Matthew Cole, Troy Felisko, Cammie Swanson, Jennifer Lair, Jake Gallogly, Buddy Hayford, our administration of Lee Ann Monroe and Tom Fitzgerald, and our awesome office at Sandy Crowningshield and Maryann Lozito.
Wimington Works and Lisa Sullivan get bonus kudos for allowing us to fundraise at their block party.
And we would not exist if not for our 21st Century, after school programming (Wings and Fresh), Andy Hauty, Katie Boyd, Shelley Park, and Sam Ambrose-Mundt make it happen for all of us.
A special thanks to Peter Boyd, delivery guy.
This is the first year that our teams did not return with an award from the state competition in Burlington However, I couldn’t be more proud of the teams we had this year and the effort and focus they had.
