From Ray Yardy:

Thank you to St. Francis parishioners and the many many community minded volunteers and the customers who worked to make the 2018 Blue Hill WindowDressers workshop such a success - thank you! To the food preparers who kept us fed and watered - thank you. To the many volunteers to worked so diligently behind the scenes - thank you. You all made it possible to assemble 236 inserts plus complete 6 repairs for inserts made in prior years. I know that your efforts will save fuel for our customers as well as making their homes more comfortable.

I would also like to publicly acknowledge the generous gift of the free use of the building by the members of the Halcyon Grange.

Thank you once again and hopefully we will see you next year.
