Wakeman Town Farms Harvest Fest 2018
September 26, 2018Stephanie,
Will you please express our sincere gratitude to all of your SLOBS members who volunteered this weekend to help make Wakeman Town Farm’s Harvest Fest such a successful event?
SLOBS volunteers were a pleasure to work along side! They all worked tenaciously and with a giving spirit the entire weekend: moving our heavy picnic tables, setting up dozens of dinner tables and hundreds of chairs, filling water canisters, serving meals, bussing tables, racking glassware, tearing down dozens of tables and hundreds of chairs and carefully packing decor for next year!
Thank you for all the time and energy your organization and its members gave to this event. Harvest Fest is our biggest fundraiser of the year and its success is so very important to the Farm. I am not exaggerating to say that we could not have done it all without SLOBS!
Anne & the entire Wakeman Town Harvest Fest committee
Westport Rotary LobsterFest 2016
September 19th, 2016Dear SLOBS,
“Thank you to all of you for making our LobsterFest an extremely successful event! We couldn’t have asked for more, the weather was terrific, the guests moved smoothly through the lines, the food was great, the music festive, the beverages flowed smoothly, volunteers worked hard, thank you, thank you, thank you.” — a note from our LobsterFest chair, Sandra Urist A very special thank you to SLOBS for volunteering at LobsterFest. You sent an incredible crew of SLOBS that were a tremendous help during the event and breaking down the event space. Thank you from the Westport Rotary Club. Laughter, lobster, and a large crowd for the fifth year in a row! Westport Rotary LobsterFest 2016 was another huge success. We had over 200 smiling and hard-working volunteers and a large happy crowd of diners. LobsterFest would not be possible without our volunteers. With your hard work we are the perfect combination-a fun and highly organized event. This is a wonderful way for you to support your community by helping Westport Rotary Club raise funds to support our local and international charities. We hope you will volunteer again next year. Our LobsterFest signs mark the beginning of the fall season with this highly anticipated community event! Thank you so much for all of your help this year. Sincere thanks, Totney Benson and Leslie Wolf, LobsterFest Volunteer Co-Chairs P.S. We have had lots of press coverage-look online and in the news for print and pictures!
