Fair Haven prepares park for the winter holiday season

The Fair Haven Itty Bitty Committee (IBC) wants to take this opportunity to thank all those who supported their Stick Figure Project and helped them dress up the park for the fall.  Some donors made more than one figure.  It was gratifying to see visitors at the park taking photos or just stopping by to check out the creative figures.  The following is the list of donors who shared their names.  Please let them know if they missed anyone or spelled a name incorrectly, as they want to keep an accurate record of all who participated.  To update your name, please contact Ceil at 802-265-7913.

Those who made and donated stick figures include Mary Kay Miller/The Fair Haven Library, the Ross Family, Cheryl Starer, Jill and Ron Adams, Sandy  Perry, Kathy Farwell and Adams House residents, Beverly Bennett, Nicole Rice and FHGS students, Bret Pollinger/ Woof Pack, the Jacob Bowen Family, Mable and Nieve Noonan, Cindy Pritchard/Finders Keepers, Priscilla Von Roeschilaub, Mary Breslin, American Legion Post 49, Sons of the American Legion and the Legion Auxiliary, Judi Sutherland, American Legion Sons Auxiliary 3, Bob Richards, Pat Stiles/Wooden Soldier, Kathy Monty, Gerri Whalen, Patty, Caren Helm/Pizzazz Pottery, Mary McNeil, Darya McNolty, Goldenberry Apothecary, Scott Folmsbee, Sue Traverse and her granddaughter, Lorraine and Jay Brown, Fair Haven Concerned, Jill Shorey, Joe and Brie Gunter, Linda Barker and Mayor Murphy. They also had an anonymous donation of an angel figure.

A huge thank you to stick figure maker, Jay Brown, who also helped install each of the figures.  They also want to thank Jay Brown, Chris Sheldon, and Joan Sheldon for coming out to help the IBC take down the stick figures.  They look forward to making this an annual event.

Decoration of the gazebo has begun as the weather has been so beautiful.  You will see trees and lights later this month, closer to Thanksgiving.  They want to thank everyone who has donated to this project, whether in the form of lights, trees, wreaths, ribbons or bows.  There will be more information on those donors and project to follow.  IBC is looking forward to lighting up the park.
