Ice Cream Social a special night for all

To the editor:

It was a rainy, damp night on May 13, but that didn’t stop a good turnout for the Pine Grove PTA Ice Cream Social.

Kids enjoyed ice cream sundaes and pizza sold at a discount to the PTA by White Farms. They ate sausages and hot dogs donated by Killeen Electrical Services, and munched on popcorn.

Little ones bounced all night on the bouncy house and played the basketball and soccer carnival games. Thanks to Jeanne Sanviti-Masher and John Howland, the karaoke station was a big hit.

Thanks also go to the Guglielmi family for the use of their karaoke machine and to Jeanne for her donation of the karaoke CDs.

Thank you to Josette Renda for making arrangements and delivery of the machine for this event.

Hair braiding was also a big hit. Thank you to Jenny and Dave Patterson for their generous donation of all of the hair braiding supplies. Thanks to Emily Palen and to Backstage Spa and Salon for the generous donation to make the Nail Painting station possible.

The face painting station was extremely popular and the kids came away with beautiful designs. Thank you to Face by Eva (McManmon) for donating her time.

Thank you to the Butler family, the Gibbs family and to the Dixon family for the use of their tents.

Thanks to Wendy Quinn, our entrance was brightened by the beautiful balloons she donated.

The planning committee for this event was a huge help. They are: Liz Butler, Lyn Macaskill, Jodi Scolamiero, Wendy Quinn, Kristen Morgese, Sieglinde Aigaer-Crooks, Elena Rosnov-Dundin, Jenny Patterson and Aimee Morland. Thank you so much for everything you did to make this such a great success.

Last but not least, a huge thank-you to all of our volunteers on the day of the event. Everyone is busy, everyone has so much going on … but these volunteers donated their valuable time and it is greatly appreciated:
