With enthusiastic thanks and great appreciation, we thank all who contributed to the 13th Annual Stocking Stuffer Antiques, Art and fine Craft Show to make it the most successful ever!
Special thanks to Mimi Barash Coppersmith for her personal sponsorship and support of this year’s event. Mimi has been a long-time member and supporter of CCHS, and we deeply appreciate this contribution.
Bouquets of gratitude to florists Avánt Garden, Daniel Vaughn Designs and Woodrings Floral Gardens for decking the Mansion’s hall with stunning donated holiday finery. And thank you to Tait Farm Trees for donations of trees and the Centre Furnace Gardeners for their donations and time contribution in beautifully decorating the exterior of the Mansion. Do make time to visit the Mansion before Christmas to take in the balsam fir scented decorations; they will be on display until December 23.
The Stocking Stuffer event is only possible because of the many, many business contributors, CCHS members and volunteers who contribute time, supplies and amazing talents, and gifted artists, antique dealers and crafters who participate. As the event has grown, so too has this grand effort that has made the event a traditional community entrée to the holiday season.
Special thanks to our gifted volunteer Stocking Stuffer Co-coordinators who had a hand in everything from months of meticulous planning, creating marvelous products to sell, to crafting an inventory check-in / check-out system to help us better manage the event:
Cathy Horner, Event Co-coordinator
Deb McManus, Event Co-coordinator
Becky Dreese, Inventory Coordinator
Our special thanks to the businesses that contribute both through program advertising, in-kind food and other contributions.
Our hats are off to the 2015 Stocking Stuffer committee along with members and volunteers and for their passion, hundreds of hours of time, organization and many generous donations to ensure the success of the Stocking Stuffer. Special thanks to CFM Docents and all who made pomanders, knitted gifts and baked goods for the event. We could not do this without you.
CCHS relies on business and individual supporters, its loyal membership, fundraisers, and literally thousands of hours of volunteer time that are generously given each year. It is a critical component to our operation. Your support helps to keep history programming and initiatives alive at the Centre Furnace Mansion and the Boogersburg Schoolhouse and beyond.
There are not enough ways to say thank you.
May your Holidays and New Year bring you peace and many joys!
