Daf­fodil thanks

Stratford Press - - News -

On be­half of the Strat­ford Daf­fodil Day Com­mit­tee, I wish to thank you for your sup­port of the Strat­ford Daf­fodil Day.

It is im­pos­si­ble to list every per­son, busi­ness or club who as­sisted us with our event, there were so many of you and we don’t know the names of you all.

But if you baked goods, helped make the lunch, de­liv­ered or­der forms and lunches, loaned us items, put up the street flags, made beau­ti­ful bunches of daf­fodils, sold raf­fles or set up the hall for lunch or the disco, made crafts for sale, or helped us run the disco, we thank you from the bot­toms of our hearts.

If you were a busi­ness who en­tered the win­dow dis­play com­pe­ti­tion, do­nated prizes, ran an event from which we were re­cip­i­ents, sold mer­chan­dise to the pub­lic, had silk daf­fodil boxes in your shops, do­nated food for our lunch, printed posters and win­ning ban­ners, we thank you. We un­der­stand that every day some­one is ask­ing for sup­port and we grate­fully ac­cept your time and do­na­tions.

If you were a mem­ber of the pub­lic or an or­gan­i­sa­tion, who rang or just turned up at any of our events and said “how can I help” we also thank you. This event is now too big for us to run by our­selves.

To the schools and early child­hood cen­tres of Strat­ford who en­tered our dis­play com­pe­ti­tion or held fundrais­ing events for us, we are grate­ful that you are shar­ing the mes­sage of Daf­fodil Day with your pupils. They are our fu­ture.

Now to the peo­ple of Strat­ford and sur­round­ing dis­tricts, thank you so much for your do­na­tions in our silk daf­fodil boxes, for at­tend­ing the many fundrais­ing events in Au­gust, for pur­chas­ing lunch, daf­fodils, or mer­chan­dise, we re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate your sup­port.

Thanks to every sin­gle one of you, we have raised a whop­ping to­tal of $23,292, a record to­tal for us.

I wish to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank the 15 won­der­ful ladies who work tire­lessly on the Strat­ford Daf­fodil Day Com­mit­tee, your dreams have come true. You work so hard in your own area, and sup­port oth­ers when needed to cre­ate a won­der­ful Strat­ford com­mu­nity event. Strat­ford be proud.
