To the Valley News:
The board of the Whallonsburg Civic Association would like to thank all the volunteers who made the Grange Hall’s Fourth Annual Block Party and Harvest Festival on Sept. 8 such a great success. Thanks go in particular to the Grange Hall Kitchen Committee; Norma Goff and the Bake Sale bakers; Whallonsburg, Wadhams, and Essex Volunteer Fire Departments; Merriloons the Clown; Chef Jeremy Doyle and his grilling crew; Domaine Champlain Orchards; Juniper Hill, Ben Weaver, Essex, Reber Rock and Mace Chasm Farms; The Wannabees, Wadhams Waddlers, Russ Bailey and Franz Pope, and Will and Cache Hartzell for great music; the Grange Co-Packers, Adirondack Harvest, Champlain Area Trails, North Country SPCA, Wadhams Free Library, the Greenhorns, and the Art Farm; and last but not least to the hard-working members of the WCA board. With your help and with the benefit of beautiful weather, everyone enjoyed a truly wonderful afternoon, and together we raised over $1,200 to support the Grange’s ongoing activities and programming.
Now we can all look forward to music, games, and plenty of delicious locally made sausage and Whallonsburgers at next year’s Block Party!
President, Whallonsburg Civic Association
