Amherst fundraiser won support it needed

To the editor:

We write with hearts full of love and appreciation for the citizens of South Amherst.

During Election Day, we staffed savory and sweet treat sales at Crocker Farm Elementary and the Munson Library. We had the pleasure of working with devoted parents, grandparents and guardians who generously baked and donated treats to support our kids, our teachers and our school. Several of these adults staffed the sales and graciously represented our learning community. Bruno’s Pizza gave us a terrific deal on party-sized cheese pizzas to bolster hungry voters at dinner time — when the lines were long.

During the hours the polls were open, we met former Crocker students, many of whom were voting in their first national election, parents and grandparents who shared their fond memories of our school community and generous citizens who donated to our cause.

It was a sunny day that turned into a heart-warming experience. It was a fantastic celebration of community and a champion fundraising effort.

Thanks to everyone who participated, shared with us and laughed with us. We could not have done it without you.

We applaud you for contributing to our community and supporting public education,

Justyne Ogdahl
