Thanks for providing 267 meals

To the editor:

The Pettengill House would like to extend our sincere thanks to the community for the outpouring of support we received for our Thanksgiving meals program. The donations we received through local schools, businesses, faith organizations and individuals enabled us to provide 267 Thanksgiving meals to 450 adults and 207 children!

In addition to everyone who donated to our Thanksgiving program, we would like to thank our volunteers who donated their time and energy to accept food drives, sort donations and prepare and distribute the Thanksgiving meals. We are truly appreciative of the dedicated volunteer force we have and they certainly worked hard. Special thanks to our regular volunteers Peg Brown, Ray Webster, Jean Mercer, Dave Mackie, Dianne LeSage, Donna Scott, MaryEllen Zappala, Amy Estabrook, Betty Breau, Janice Epps, Deb Casey, Tricia Buckley, Marty Ferry, Suzanne Van de Visser, Pam Brown, Sue Sweet, Lea Healey, Wendy Morin, Wally and Noreen Hager, Michelle Walsh, Flo Mungillo, Kelly Seyler and Betty Stone.

On behalf of Deborah Smith, executive director, as well as our staff, volunteers and board of directors, we would like to thank everyone who contributed to our Thanksgiving program; we could not do what we do without the generous support of the community!

Thank you to all!

The Pettengill House
