To the Editor:

The Washington Environmental Council would like say “thank you” to all those who participated in making this year’s Moon Dance our most successful fundraiser ever.

We are honored to acknowledge the following individuals and businesses whose willingness to donate items and/or services for our silent auction truly made all the difference in the world.

Not only does their generosity demonstrate a strong commitment towards creating an environmentally friendly and sustainable community, it also greatly supports our Student Scholarship Fund.

Sincere thanks to Party Rental, John Gueniat, Big Y, CJ Kersten, Northville Market, The Pantry, Stew Leonard’s, County Wine & Spirits, Washington Food Market, Dawn Hill Antiques, Missy Stevens, Elizabeth MacDonald, Terri Tibbatts, Ziggy’s Italian Specialties, Corey Harris, Birch Tree Wellness, Vi Owens, 9 Main Café, Spring Hill Vineyard, Steep Rock, Mockingbird Kitchen & Bar, Green Granary, Zaragoza, Bantam Cinema, The Gunnery, Hopkins Inn, Mayflower Grace, G.W. Tavern, Community Table, Rumsey Hall, Pratt Nature Center and Oliva.

And a special thank you to New Milford Farms who offered to compost and recycle all the compostable and recyclables items from the dance, making the event a virtual zero-waste night.

Additionally, we want the dozens of volunteers who gave their time and talents to know their efforts have gone a long way towards helping WEC achieve its goal of educating and empowering young adults to become our future environmental leaders.
