Thanks for helping with Jaffrey Fair
To the editor:
The 97th First Church in Jaffrey Fair and the Children’s Fair were a great success on Aug. 7. On behalf of the Rev. Robert Kyte and the congregation, the First Church thanks the scores of people from the community and the church who made contributions of items and who volunteered to work on the fair, as well as the many hundreds of people who came to find bargains and to enjoy the children’s games and activities.
The following individuals, community businesses and organizations made generous contributions of services, materials or financial support to the 97th First Church in Jaffrey Fair and the Children’s Fair: A Sweep Above, Brian Barden, The Bean Family Foundation, Belletetes, Camp Wa-Klo, Cathy Coll of Coll’s Garden Center, Cournoyer Funeral Home, Daffodils Flowers & Gifts, Katherine Draper, Fawn’d Memories, Ken Geraghty, Gordon Services Property Maintenance, Tammy Griffin of TD Bank, Hampsey and Grenier, Hill Family Insurance, Jaffrey Center Village Improvement Society, Town of Jaffrey, Jaffrey Police, Jaffrey-Rindge Ambulance Service, Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary Club, Robert “Robie Bones” Lord, Monadnock Disposal Service, Monadnock Early Learning Center, Monadnock Inn, Monadnock Ledger-Transcript, New Ipswich Congregational Church, John Peard of Red’s, Rindge Police, Roy’s Custom Framing & Art Supply, Tieger Realty, and Tower and Crocker.
