Letter of thanks: Sawmill River 10K Run

Sawmill River 10K Run

On Jan. 1, Montague Parks & Recreation held its annual Sawmill River 10K Run in Montague Center. Approximately 163 runners from Minneapolis to Maine participated in this major fundraising event that supports our Sponsor-A-Child Scholarship Program. The race would not have been possible without the investment of time, energy, resources and funding from many within our fine community.

We would like to thank A.H. Rist Insurance Co., Turn It Up Music, Greenfield Savings Bank, Renaissance Builders, Judd Wire, Red Fire Farm and The Rendezvous for their generous financial support. We would also like to thank the Montague Common Hall, Foster’s Supermarket, Stop & Shop, Sugarloaf Mountain Athletic Club and the First Congregational Church of Montague Center for much needed supplies materials and other services.

As many of you know, volunteer assistance is essential to the success of an event of this magnitude. Therefore, considerable appreciation goes out to the Montague Parks & Recreation Commissioners, Franklin County Amateur Radio Club, Montague Highway Dept., Montague Police and the countless number of volunteers who spent a good portion of their New Year’s Day helping us out during registration and at the finish line.

Finally, we would like to thank the runners who participated in the Sawmill Run. We appreciate your support of MPRD programs and look forward to seeing you in 2015!
