A big thanks to all for Riverfest
To the editor:
On behalf of TEAM Jaffrey’s Board and Riverfest volunteers, I extend heartfelt gratitude to everyone whose efforts, generosity and participation made this year’s Riverfest on July 26 such a tremendous success! Whether you participated in the Fire Department’s 5K, found a deal at one of the benefit yard sales, enjoyed getting crafty on the Civic Center lawn, Zumba’d, competed in our Musical Chairs on main event, “adopted” a book at the library yard sale, toured an ambulance or fire apparatus, or enjoyed a “Downtown Deal” offered by one of our unique downtown merchants — thank you!
Riverfest Evening brought a new crowd of over 300 of all ages who enjoyed a free summer Concert on the Common, featuring Northern Stone, sponsored by Subway of Jaffrey, while enjoying the Fire Department’s Chicken BBQ and TEAM’s Ice Cream social! It was a delight to see so many families gathering on the common, dancing, dining, enjoying and experiencing downtown pride together! A special thanks to our sponsors: Apollo Steel, Boston Impressions, Bouyea-Fassetts Bakery, Bellows-Nichols Insurance, CJ the DJ, Connolly Brothers Dairy, Hannaford, Infogroup, McDonalds, MDS, Pelletier’s Sport Shop, People’s United Bank, Shaw’s, Steve’s Lettering, Subway, TD Bank, Torphy Construction & Development, Walmart, and W.B. Mason for their financial and in-kind support. Thanks also to our Jaffrey event partners: Downtown Merchants /Property Owners, Jaffrey Civic Center, Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce, Jaffrey Public Library, Jaffrey-Rindge Ambulance, the Women’s Club, NH State Police K-9 Unit, Que Viva Fitness, Project Shakespeare, Rousseau’s Music, The Park Theatre and the Town of Jaffrey (DPW, Highway, Police, Fire, and Recreation departments) for their assistance and support. We truly appreciate the support and participation of so many in making Riverfest such an outstanding summer celebration for families in our region while shining a bright spotlight on our vibrant downtown!
