Successful Treasures in the Attic
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 funds this event raises for the ongoing maintenance of Greenwood’s historic house and gardens are so important and we are deeply 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, Georgia Jared, Fran de Lallo, Carol Durham and Monique Verdier for their extraordinary effort in creating more than 50 mile-high apple pies (and scones too); Hudson’s Le Verger 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; Donna Seaman and Katie Miller for baking scones; and Liz Rozon and her team for keeping all the workers fed.
Grateful thanks to Darryl Seaman, Jane and Mike Havard, Bailey O'Farrell, George Wall and all the volunteers who ensured the day went without a hitch.
And very special thanks to the appraisers who made our ‘antiques roadshow’ such a success: Robert Carr and Lois Tani, Kevin Colgan, Peter McDonald, Maureen Trudel-Decelles and Norm Decelles, Willem de Freitas and Susan Ravdin, Victor Isganaitas and Roberto Menard.
And a huge thank-you 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.
