Letter to the editor 2, October 6, 2016
Hudson’s Greenwood Centre for Living History would like to send a huge thank-you to everyone who made our Treasures in the Attic event such a success. The importance of the funds that this event raises for the ongoing maintenance of Greenwood’s historic house and gardens cannot be overestimated and we are so grateful to the many people who ensured that this could happen again this year.
Enormous thanks to all the volunteers who took part in the day’s events: Julia and Richard Curry for their enormous effort in managing all the vintage sale items, not only on Saturday but all year; Audrey Gray for taking care of all the appraisers and more; June Kendall and her team, especially Monique Verdier and Fran de Lallo, for their extraordinary effort in creating 54 mile-high apple pies; the Royal Canadian Legion for their kind permission to use their kitchen; St. James Church; Barb Gibb and her team and all the wonderful student volunteers of Westwood High School; Carol Durham and Donna Seaman for baking all those scones; and Liz Rozon and her team for keeping all the workers fed.
And very special thanks to all the appraisers who made our ‘antiques roadshow’ such a success: Robert Carr and Lois Tani, Kevin Colgan, Ashley Cotter-Cairns, Maureen Trudel-Decelles and Norm Decelles, Willem de Freitas and Susan Ravdin, Victor Isganaitas and Roberto Menard.
And last but certainly far from least, huge thanks to all the people who came out to our event and took part in some way. Your support of Greenwood is so very much appreciated.
