We would like to thank Olivia Gawet, St. Bridget’s and St. Stanislaus churches, Fr. Vincent Coppola, and the West Rutland community for their wonderful support in choosing Rutland Dismas House as the recipients of the proceeds from their Variety Show on Sunday, March 10.
Olivia delivered a generous check of $2,250 to Dismas on Tuesday – a definite boost to the work done at Dismas to help support these men and women who are trying to change their lives. Also thank you to the four residents, Adam, Terry, Mike, and John, for getting up on stage to give a short testimonial to the work of Dismas and their gratitude to all of you who support them.
It was also wonderful for WCAX, the Rutland Herald, Terry Jaye and WJJR, and The Mountain Times for all of the positive PR this gave to Dismas. I hope many of you will be able to join the Rutland Dismas House Community on Sunday, June 9, for our 23rd Annual Dinner Auction Event being held at the Holiday Inn. More information about this will be coming out in the next couple of months.
