Thanks for making Swing Into Fall benefit a success

To the Editor:

Sincere thanks to all of the volunteers and sponsors that made the inaugural Swing Into Fall to benefit the Wilton Gregg Free Public Library an overwhelming success this past weekend. Months of planning and preparation culminated in a fun evening of music, dancing and desserts to benefit the renovation of the historical society.

?The backing of The Proctor Agency and Curtis Farm were instrumental in the success of this event and provided an extension of the community spirit and support of The Library.

?Just the Three of Us jazz Ensemble and Temple Dance Band wowed the crowd of 150 with traditional big-band classics and modern interpretations.

?Desserts and beverages provided by The Dutch Epicure, Karen Grypko, Nelson’s Candy, Ava Marie’s Handmade Chocolates, Monadnock Water, Walmart, Aspirations Catering, Alex Loverme and Kelly Eshback and contributions from the Friends of the Library offered a diversion for the non-dancers in attendance.

? All advertising material was designed by the talented Elizabeth Noftle and printing was donated by New England Duplicator.

?The decorations and the tent were provided by Special Events of New England, House by the Side of the Road, Washburn’s Windy Hill Orchard, Renaissance Farm and Curtis Hill Farm.

?Silent auction items were provided by Good Mojo Dog Center, Doggy Bag and Day Spaw, Birchwood Inn, Andy’s Summer Playhouse, Frye’s Measure Mill, Wilton Town Hall Theatre, Juanice Thompson, Sam Townsend, Gail Hoar, Stepping Stones Bed and Breakfast and The Wilton Center Tennis Club.

?There were also many individual efforts went into this event, but I especially want to thank Lyle Fulkerson at the Proctor Agency, Matt Fish at Curtis Farm, The Friends of the Wilton Library, Jim Dougherty, David Potter, Mary Tyler-Wall, Sam Townsend, Donna Joas, Gail Worthen, Janice Noftle, Lana Holliday, Gail Hoar and the eighth-grade class at the Well School.

Lastly, I would like to thank the town of Wilton for their continued support of the library. All of the improvement and renovation efforts at the library are designed to reflect the pride and dedication of the greater community and we are constantly rewarded by that.
