To the Editor,

We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the many individuals who made the sixth annual Blueberry Festival such a great success. The success of this event is directly tied to the breadth and depth of local support it has achieved in its six years. Thank you to all of the businesses, individuals and sponsors who opened their doors to us, made gallons of Jell-O, helped hang posters or helped get things organized. With over 70 individual events taking place in the 10-day period, there are far too many individuals to properly thank here in this letter. None of this could have happened without our guests and event participants, the Living History Association, our committee and event volunteers, and of course our numerous event hosts.

There are a few volunteers and sponsors who deserve a moment in the spotlight: Janet Boyd, for her unwavering commitment to this festival and for her gift of making things happen; the town of Dover and West Dover Fire Department for their support of the wildly successful Blueberry Parade; the Deerfield Valley Rotary for another tasty breakfast; the Deerfield Valley Community Partnership and the town of Wilmington for the insanely popular Block Party.

Proving once again, that with community participation, we can accomplish great things.

Adam Grinold, Director, Mount Snow Valley Chamber of Commerce
