NEAR Pasta & Movie Night Thanks

Thank you is an expression of gratitude and appreciation
There are many people that deserve our thanks for their part in the success of the Pasta/ Movie Night held on March 4, 2017
First, to all our members and guests that braved the cold and wind. They arrived to enjoy an evening of good memories, good friendship and renewing or making new acquaintances.
Then, there is Don Moon who went above and beyond,selling tickets and encouraging people to support the event.
Steve and Jim who organized the prize table for the raffle.
The numerous people who donated prizes for the raffle, who, without their generosity, we would not have been financially successful.
The folks present who bought the tickets for the raffle and the 50/50 tickets.
The numerous retailers and businesses that donated a prize, or allowed NEAR to place a poster about the event on the window or counter to help publicize the event.
The members of the fundraising committee for their efforts to bring together a successful event that had not been undertaken in over 2 years.
Many thanks to the Bristol Elks #1010, who graciously donated their facility for the event.
The Chairman of the Fundraising Committee Rich Goucher who labored since January to secure a location,buy and prepare the food, and get the tickets printed.
Lastly, to all the folks who said thank you when departing the hall, asking that another event be scheduled as they enjoyed the movies, the conversation and the food. They also commented that those who did not venture out missed out on a wonderful happening.
Thank you one and all!
