2015 Holiday Bazaar & Food Drive Thank You!

The Staff Council Office and the Social Committee wishes to thank all those that attended, volunteered or donated at this year's Holiday Bazaar & Food Drive.  Although it was a rainy December day it didn't dampen the spirits of those inside. With about 40 vendors selling their locally made or handcrafted products, a large variety of bake sale items, and a record year for the raffle we enthusiastically worked through the day with an army of volunteer helpers throughout the event.

As part of this annual event we hold a Food Drive for the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf. This year we collected enough to serve 217 meals and a small amount of cash donations.

All proceeds from the table and the rental fees for vendors help to support Staff Council Social Committee events such as bus trips, Champlain Valley Fair ticket discounts, Community Service Award Program, and much more.
