Letter to the editor: Thanks to Shrewsbury Fall Festival supporters and volunteers


To the Editor:

The Spirit of Shrewsbury Fall Festival was a success as witnessed by so many smiling faces, both young and old.  The sunny weekend brought droves of people to events around town.

The idiom, “many hands make light work,” applies to the hard work and countless hours by over 200 volunteers, from middle school age to adults, to make the weekend events come together. A tip of the hat to the major festival sponsors: Avidia Bank, b.good, Central One Federal Credit Union, Dunkin’ Donuts, God’s Little Children Preschool, Gymnastics Learning Center, Massachusetts State Representative Hannah Kane, Mercadante Funeral Home & Chapel, Price Chopper, Shrewsbury Crossings, Webster Five, Wegmans, and Westboro Tennis & Swim Club. We appreciate the work of SELCO in hanging banners along Route 9 and the center of town. A big thank you goes out to the people who purchased the banners. To Shrewsbury Federal Credit Union, we thank you for the volunteer t-shirts. Appreciation also goes to the town departments: Engineering Department, Board of Health, Fire Department, Buildings and Grounds, SELCO, Highway Department, Dan Morgado, and Oak Middle School. Gratitude is also given to the businesses who supplied food for the volunteers: Dean Park Pizza, Golden Pizza, Panera Bread, Papa Gino’s, Polar Beverages, Price Chopper, Red Barn Coffee, Shaw’s, and Stop and Shop. Lastly, thank you to Claytime, Jump Nation, Sky Zone, Learning Express, I Craze Yogurt, Two Ovens and b.good for donating gifts to the craft fair raffle table.

If you would like to volunteer or have ideas for the 2016 Spirit of Shrewsbury Fall Festival, our 20th anniversary, contact Sue at [email protected]. We are also looking for groups or individuals to hold events to make next year’s weekend even bigger and better. Be a volunteer. Catch the spirit…the Spirit of Shrewsbury Fall Festival!
