Many thanks to all of the volunteers who helped contribute to the success of the 2018 Holiday Bazaar. More than 30 volunteers turned out to set up the Holiday Bazaar and assist in the Wrapping Room on the day of the event. A special thanks to Nelle Knapp, Morgan Oldham, Pat Gibbons and the whole 4th Grade Class for organizing this special holiday event. The wrapping room was buzzing with activity, and the energy was palpable as students’ smiles went from ear to ear.
We are delighted to share that $749 was raised and will be divided equally between the local Food and Fuel Fund and The Greater Bennington Peace and Justice Center’s initiative to send children to school in Somotillo, Bennington’s sister city in Nicaragua. This success couldn’t have been possible without the support and commitment of our community and Friends of the Village School.
