Letter to Editor:
The E.J. Noble Guild would like to thank all those who helped make “the Night on the Town in Nashville” a great success.
Our main goal this year was to bring the dance back to Canton and create a more casual feel that would be better suited for the majority of our community members. For all of you who dressed the part (cowboy boots and bandanas) thanks for adding to the Nashville atmosphere. I hope fun was had by all.
We have to give special thanks to the sponsors who donated money upfront which covered many of our expenses. Those individuals and businesses are: Mike Frazer, Frazer Computing; Elizabeth Isenberg, Nutrition Associates of the St. Lawrence Valley; The Clarkson Inn; Dr. Bryan Francey, Smile Associates; Terry Phalon, North Country Savings Bank; Donna Clark, White Pillars Lodging; Brooks Washburn, Brooks Washburn Architect, PC; Mike and Kathy Crowe; Pinto, Mucenski, Hooper, Van House & Co.; Jeff Proulx, Save A Lot; Gray and Gray, CPAs; Dr. Michael Maresca, St. Lawrence Radiology Associates; Sylvia Kingston; Le Berge and Curtis; Healey Medical Practice; Varick and Judy Chittenden; Greg and Daina Carvel; White’s Flowers; Richard Gardner and Ann Monck; Community Bank, NA; Dr. Jason and Susan Lorenc and Randy and Deanna Paige.
Thanks to the many people who donated beautiful baskets and other items to our silent auction. We had 65 donors and the auction alone brought in over $3,500. Also a special thanks goes out to Pat Collins and Pat Collins Real Estate for donating a paddle board for our raffle drawing that was valued at over $500. Marlinda LaValley was the lucky winner! Thanks also to Joanne Robinson who loaned us vintage western garb to dress up the dining room. Last, but not least, thank you to Brenda Snow at White’s Flowers who generously wrapped numerous silent auction items for us.
Our proceeds totaled a little over $9,000 and will go to the Birth Place OB Unit at Canton-Potsdam Hospital. The E.J. Noble Guild has donated close to $550,000 in the last fifteen years . Without community support and participation we would not be able to do all that we do for the hospital. Thank you again.
E.J. Noble Guild President
