To The Editor:

This year we have much to be thankful for as students studying German. We are getting to visit Germany in April 2011, with our German teacher, Frau Weno.

We wish to graciously thank Sherman and Susie Goldstein, who were kind enough to give us an empty space in the Mansion House to hold our first fundraising event, the Holiday Market. We are ever grateful to Vineyard Bottled Waters for hot drinks.

Also, thank you to all the vendors who came out to support us: Karen Mercier of Avon; Mary Ann Billard of Creative Memories; Colleen Parillo of Lia Sophia; Carole Gurule of Mary Kay; Susan Hamblin of Pampered Chef; Laura Lanagan and April of Silpada, and the folks from Martha’s Vineyard Florist.

And thanks to all the parents who donated time, baking, and other supplies, as well as working on Saturday.

Lastly, thanks to Laura Derby for contributing to the bake sale, because visiting Germany when she studied the language had made a difference for her. Look for more events to help us reach our goal.
