To the Editor:
At this year's annual Minnesingers auction, held Friday evening at Farm Neck, parents, friends, and the Island community came together to support the group's spring performance trip to Croatia.
The Minnesingers and I appreciated having the opportunity to present a mini-concert, which featured two pieces the group will be performing as part of our program in April. Everyone enjoyed shopping during the silent auction, partaking of delicious appetizers and desserts and listening to Jerry Yukevich in his new found role as auctioneer.
Again, I am overwhelmed by the generosity of time and contributions from former Minnesinger parents, Island businesses, and friends, both old and new. The Minnesingers and I thank members of the Minnesingers Parent Group for their continued hard work and dedication, the staff at Farm Neck for providing such a lovely venue, Jerry Yukevich, and of course the many folks in attendance Friday and those who made donations. It was especially gratifying to see so many former Minnesinger parents.
