Calico Fair 2017

Thank you!

Dear Friends,

For us this Calico Fair Day is especially precious. We have been three times the stewards of an ages-long tradition here at Christ Church and we are sure that we will end the day just as we have each final Fair day – exhausted but absolutely in awe of the people of Christ Church. We’ll remember this one as the one of the mysterious banner disappearance and where Capelli’s generously donated another and where we held our breaths to see if JCP&L work would cause any disruption on Kings Highway. But we’ll remember that these were but hiccups – this Christ Church family is fearless and overcomes all. At the end of the day, this day will again be an opportunity for ALL of us to come together and work together and simply be together as cherished friends – old and new.

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to so many – those who contributed our seed money, our dedicated and industrious committee chairs, a host of volunteers, contributors to Rummage and to Book Sale, to the Silent Auction, Children’s Boutique, Accessories and Holiday Shop. To the bakers, to the writers, to the creative minds and fingers – thank you, thank you, thank you.

And a special thanks from our hearts to:

  • Father Bill – Thank you for your enthusiasm, your interest, your presence and for being a fun, wonderful good sport.
  • Christine Ruland – there are simply not enough words, thank you for always being open to yet ANOTHER request and thank you for anticipating what we forget to do!
  • Susan Best Jones– thank you for creating our printed material, your patience and willingness to help are hallmarks of the professional that you are. We wish you success in your web design and marketing business, S. Best Designs.
  • McCormack Farms – Thank you for the pumpkins, transformed into masterpiece creations of little fingers
  • To Frank Kerfoot and Robert Wilson – thanks for transporting our borrowed tables
  • Capelli’s Nursery – Thank you for your generous donations, and yes, ANOTHER banner
  • Bruce Schower and Frank Kerfoot – Thank you for getting the banners up!
  • Bill Cuff – Thank you for your ongoing support and those quiches – delish!
  • Jordan – thank you for your patience and help.
  • St George’s Episcopal and St Mary’s - thank you for loaning us the tables (we never seem to have enough) and the raffle drum.
  • To Clint, Marty and Vincent and, Becky, Elyse and Michael: Thank you for your support, for lending us your talents and filling in all the gaps. We love you.
  • And finally, thank you to Maria Kerfoot and Robin Simunovich – we leave you Calico Fair 2019 with the absolute confidence that you too will find it a labor of love and be awestruck at what this parish can accomplish.
  • We are, as always, thankful beyond words for the capacity of our Christ Church Family to always turn up, to always give more and to always lift us up. You have all been an inspiration and a great comfort to each of us.

    To each or our Committee Chairs: This day would never have happened without each of you. Thank you for your willing spirit, your hard- working hands and open hearts. We are so truly blessed and more grateful than you will ever know.

    With the greatest love and affection,

    Lauren Badal, Erna Sottile and Betty Truscott
