We would like to thank all of our sponsors: Diamond – Pentucket Bank, Gold – Fred Simmons, Silver – Enterprise Bank, and Bronze – Katalin Baltimore and NILP (Northeast Independent Living Program); and all those who bought tickets, donated, and purchased ads in our booklet. We would also like to thank Calee Merenda, representing State Senator Diana DiZoglio who could not attend.
