Letter: Chamber thanks volunteers, vendors for farmers market season

By on October 1, 2009

The Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce & Industry extends sincere thanks to all of the volunteers and vendors who worked so hard to make the 2009 Sugar Grove Chamber Farmers Market our best season ever.

The Farmers Market is an important element of our rural community that helps to establish a sense of identity, while serving the community by making fresh farm products, crafts, and specialty items available in one convenient location.

The chamber especially thanks Pat Graceffa, Mari Johnson, Don Meisinger, Andy and Tina Cella, Scott Risch and Dan Neely, whose dedication, hard work and friendly attitude help make the market a pleasant experience for everyone.

Our vendors deserve special kudos as well. For 17 weeks, they set up their booths before 8 a.m. on Saturday morning, greeted the patrons with a smile, and offered great products until noon. Their enthusiasm is contagious, and is an essential aspect of the market’s success.

In addition, the chamber thanks all of the patrons of our market for their loyalty and commitment to supporting the market and its many vendors and special activities. Even on rainy Saturday mornings, many of our patrons braved the nasty weather to make the rounds at the market.
