Letter: Dandy support for Yankee Doodle Fair
Published 11:02 am, Friday, June 20, 2014
A most hearty thank you to those from Westport and the surrounding communities who came out to enjoy the fun at the Woman's Club 2014 Yankee Doodle Fair.
Those who receive our assistance through the WWC's community grants, scholarships and the food closet will benefit greatly from your participation in our signature fundraiser.
Special thanks go to our sponsors: Resnick Investments; Robert Grant, attorney; Wells Fargo Bank; The Westport National Bank; Dorothy E. Curran; Weichert Realtors; and our Fair program partner, HSBC Bank. Thanks also to the Friends of the Fair: Harding Funeral Home, In Memory of Doris Farquhar; and Luxe, Bond and Green.
We also appreciate the generous support from the many local merchants who donated prizes for our Lucky Prize Drawing.
As usual, we received wonderful support from the local media who helped us get the word out before, after and during the fair.
And finally, I must thank our amazing committee chairs, Josephine Laska and Audrey Rabinowitz, as well as all of the volunteers who have worked long hours to put together a great fair and who kept smiling through the rain.
The participation of all of you -- attendees, sponsors, partners, friends, donors, media and our intrepid committee has once again made the Yankee Doodle Fair a tremendous success.
Mary Lee Clayton, president
The Westport Woman's Club
