Letter: Recognition appreciated
Dear Clare Higgins and members of the Community Action board of directors,
Thank you for recognizing the Free Harvest Supper Organizing Committee with the Community Action Volunteer Award at your recent annual Breakfast at Deerfield Academy. We are honored to be able to contribute to Community Action’s powerful work. It was wonderful to learn more about Community Action and to meet many of the people who support our community. We greatly appreciate Clare’s leadership and the compassion, savvy, skill, knowledge and social justice perspective that she brings to our community. Dino Schnelle does a superb job of supporting the Free Harvest Supper, especially in helping our group channel the funds we raise through the Free Harvest Supper into the Farmers’ Market Coupon Program. As an ad hoc group of community members, we would not be able to have as great an impact if it weren’t for the support of Dino and Sara Cummings and their colleagues at Community Action. Thank you for helping our work with the Free Harvest Supper spread far beyond a tasty meal on the Greenfield Town Common.
