Hard work made festival great

To the editor:

We are grateful for the support of our first Fall in Love With Wellington festival. The event highlighted what makes Wellington unique and beloved. It included live local music, games, contests, shopping, food, an architecture I-Spy game, and more. With over 200 volunteer hours, there are many thank you notes to send. However, the following people were integral to our success: Melissa and Tom Gregan, Kelly and Jason Keith, Teresa Bosela, Mark Bughman, Allison Zander, T.J. Fourdyce, Christina Jordan, and Andy Arntz. The participation of the Wellington Schools, the coaches, all safety services, and the village of Wellington were also key.

Congratulations to Eleanor and Larry Broome, who were bestowed the first Morris Furcron Outstanding Wellington Citizenship Award for their continued support and service of many Wellington causes.

Additional prize-winners include Myssi Justice who won the soup/bread bake-off and tied with Carol Griffith for Best in Show in the apple-pumpkin bake-off. Barb Leiby and Ryan King/Melanie Stock won prizes for their scarecrows. Lila Simonson won top prize for the best decorated pumpkin.
