On behalf of the members of the Middlebury Fire Department, we would like to thank our community for your show of support at the 63rd Annual East Middlebury Ham Supper that was held at the Waybury Inn last week. We truly appreciate your generosity and support.
We would also like to recognize the hard work and dedication of Donna Seibert and the tremendous staff at the Waybury, and the businesses who donated product or services for the event: Black River Produce, Cabot Creamery, Foley Distributing, U.S. Foods, the Valley Voice, and the Vermont Coffee Company. We could not do this without their support.
In continuing the tradition of the ham supper, we look forward to interacting with the community at a time when we are not responding to emergencies, and also to providing community members with the chance to meet up with each other.
Thanks again for your support of the Middlebury Fire Department and for making the supper a success.
