To the Editor:

On behalf of the officers and trustees of the Kent Historical Society, I would like to thank everyone who once again made our annual Christmas party at the Swift House such a great success.

Our two rooms were packed to overflowing crowds, with old friends and new faces. Many people brought their favorite homemade goodies to share, and the Fife'n Drum and J.P. Gifford each donated beautifully presented platters of tasty treats.

Their generosity is much appreciated.

Other guests volunteered to tend the bar, pass the food and clean up at the end of the evening.

And speaking strictly for myself, I would like to give a huge thank you to all my hardworking board members who knocked themselves out to make the Swift House sparkle and glow and to help you all feel welcome and well fed. They are a truly remarkable group.

I hope you all shared happy holidays.
