Newburyport Daily News

---- — To the editor:

On Saturday, March 15, Pine Grove School combined organizations and hosted our Inaugural Social and Auction themed “Forging A Stronger Pine Grove Community” at The Governor’s Academy. The purpose of the event was to raise money to support the Pine Grove School PTA, Rowley Public Education Fund and to help defray the cost of 5th Grade Ecology Camp.

The night was filled with fun, laughter, dancing and, most importantly, successful fundraising for Pine Grove School! Thank you for all who attended and a special thank-you for all our supporters: Institution for Savings for event sponsorship, Derrick Gardner for his fabulous artwork, Country Gardens for the flowers and balloons, Leanne Lavoie for printing the program, Governor’s Academy for the amazing space, Rowley Liquors for their continued support, and Arian Haley and Sandy Lanphear for creating the Auction book.

Thank you to our community patrons for their delicious food contribution: Mike’s Pastry, Pomodori, Majestic Dragon, Poland Springs, Spuds, Sandrino’s, Spinelli’s, Papa Gino’s of Newburyport and Chic-fil-A, Whole Foods and BJs, Costco, General Linens, the Lyons Family and the Guglielmi Family.

The night would not have been made possible without the countless of hours by our many volunteers: Nicole Thornton, Celeste Kiricoples, Jen Godfrey, Arian Haley, Joanna White, Tricia Savino, Wendy Quinn, Chris Quinn, Theresa Karol, Danielle Thistlewood, Dyann Angeloni-Guarino, Jacqueline Trojan, Cyndi Leonard, Jill Bouley, Kate Machado, Mary Beradino, Kristen Morgese, Johanna Lent, Jeanine Dupuis, Chase Craveiro, Erica Geyer, Luci DiTulliio, Sieglinde Aigner-Crooks, Pam Gay, Josette Renda, Maghann Merrill, Tina Knight, Derrick Gardner, MaryEllen Bernier, Loriana Salvati, Sandy Lanphear, Stephanie Faloon, Tara Robillard, Jean Atherton, Torrie Nguyen, Denise Meader, Amber Quigley, Joanne Hight, Patti Cummings, Karen Muzi, Becky Ewell, Kelly Brosch and the teachers and staff at Pine Grove. Their dedication is appreciated beyond words!
