Major thanks

To the Editor:

The Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School Minnesingers and I send out a major thank you and sincere appreciation for the overwhelming generosity and support demonstrated by the community in making the annual Minnesinger Auction at Farm Neck last Friday such a huge success.

The donations from our Island merchants, artists, and service providers, especially during these challenging economic times, truly indicate how our Island joins together to support our students and the performing arts.

A very special thanks to the Minnesinger Parents’ Group, to former Minnesinger parents, and to the many friends and family members who made this event possible. We would like to acknowledge Mia Rebello, who helped coordinate the evening, and Adam Rebello, Jill Jackson, Jordan Rebello, and Judy Pizzella, who worked tirelessly throughout the evening. And kudos to our veteran and popular auctioneer, Trip Barnes, who guided the auction bidders with his uniquely humorous delivery.

We are truly grateful for the continued support shown by all our Island friends.
