To the Editor,

The seventh annual Deerfield Valley Food Pantry Benefit Motorcycle Ride was a resounding success. We had beautiful weather, a record 105 registrants participating in our ride, and we raised $3,765.50. All in all, an outstanding day.

Many, many thanks to Valley View Saloon for coordinating and sponsoring our event, without your support our benefit would not have evolved into the great event it is! Thank you too to event sponsors: Catamount Environmental Inc., Harpoon Brewery, The Richards Group, The Deerfield Valley News, New England Barn Salvage, Southworth Electrical Inc., and W&B Property Maintenance, and Therese Lounsbury for designing our T-shirt logo, Reverend Jim Littrell for the Blessing of the Bikes, the 50 individuals and businesses who donated prizes for our raffle, Kids in the Country for donating the day’s popcorn sale proceeds, the Deerfield Valley Stump Jumpers snowmobile club for donating their 50/50 raffle monies, and of course, to everyone who participated in our event.

The Deerfield Valley Food Pantry serves approximately 100 families (for an estimated 300 people) per month, supplementing their food budget with about a week’s groceries, plus fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, and dairy.
