To the Times of Ti:
On behalf of the Moriah Central School Parent-Teacher Association, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in helping to make this year’s annual family fun event, Moriah Madness, successful.
Our event was enhanced by the addition of the Literacy Volunteers of Essex County, Reading is Fundamental (RIF), the Scholastic Book Fair, the Port Henry Fact Finder/PH-7 Committee and the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.
We received excellent help from RSVP and Mountain Lakes Services volunteers, as well as the MCS National Honor Society and other student volunteers. Thank you all!
The presence of Penelope the Clown (aka Kathy Sprague) and Laura Muniz (of George's) was evident by all of the children with happy, painted, faces walking around with snow cones! Thank you to both of you for your participation once again this year.
As usual, the pie throw was a big hit! No pun intended. But really, as a kid, when else can you hit your teacher in the face with a pie and get away with it? Thank you to all of our brave volunteer targets and last minute stand-ins. You’re great sports and we truly appreciate it!
Thank you also to all who participated in the seventh annual Basket Raffle. Whether you donated a basket, purchased tickets or both, we appreciate your support.
I don’t dare try to name people individually as I hand out our thank yous because without a doubt I would leave someone out and I don’t want that to happen. I’d rather close by saying, thank you to everyone who helped in any way. No matter how big or how small, it all had a part in making this event a success once again. We can’t do it without your help and support. When we have a successful event, 100 percent of that success benefits our kids, our school and our community.
Lastly I would like to thank the community members for attending which is essentially put together for all of you. We appreciate your continued support and patronage and hope to see you again next year.
