A village's support
To the Editor:
It truly does take a village to produce a successful evening of fundraising, and we all know there are many of them on this Island in the summer. Many of us have friends involved in all of these organizations and we want to support their worthy causes. Summer is so busy, with all the great opportunities on the Island, that it's difficult to choose.
We at the Featherstone Center for the Arts were indeed fortunate on Monday night. The moon was full, the breeze was balmy, Farm Neck looked beautiful, and many people arrived to enjoy the evening.
Most important, however, was the support shown for Featherstone. The countless individuals and organizations that donated items for the auctions, the many volunteers that worked for hours behind the scene and at the event, the staff of both Featherstone and Farm Neck, our wonderful auctioneer, the tireless musicians — all deserve a sincere round of applause. Thank you, thank you, thank you one and all.
