Pittsford Rec gives a hearty thanks where due

Dear Editor,

On Nov. 19, the Recreation Department sponsored the annual holiday craft sale. The Recreation Department would like recognize Kelly Connaughton, the craft fair coordinator. She volunteered a lot of time out of her very busy schedule to help raise money for the kids in our community. The town of Pittsford and Lothrop School are fortunate to have such a qualified, organized and energetic person in charge of this important community tradition. These kids and their families will be much better off because of your dedication.
In all there were 39 paid vendors. All registration fees, a total of $585, went directly to Pittsford Christmas for Kids, formerly known as the Santa Fund. Thank you to all the crafters who signed up this year! Finally, thank you to Lothrop School for allowing the Recreation Department to host the craft fair in the gym.

Randy Adams, Pittsford Recreation Director
