The GFWC Castleton Woman’s Club extends heartfelt thanks to all those who helped make Colonial Day 2013 a success. Mother Nature provided a sunny day, but we could not have achieved our goal without strong community support. Thank you to the homeowners, hostesses, bakers, town officials, volunteers, members of the press, and members of the club, all of whom pitched in to make sure we had a successful day. Also many thanks to Castleton State College; Castleton Free Library and Friends; Carl Fuller at Hubbardton Battlefield; Castleton Fire Department; Castleton Federated Church; St. Mark’s Church; the Historical Society and Don Thompson; HM 53rd Regiment of Foot; and Masonic Lee Lodge 30.
Special thanks to those who donated items for the raffle and a sincere thank-you, too, to all the generous and loyal sponsors who faithfully support us on Colonial Day and with other projects throughout the year.
We are grateful for the enthusiastic support of the community that enables us to raise money for scholarships for deserving students at Fair Haven Union High School and Castleton State College.
