ABFM Thanks and Updates
We're giving a shout-out to several folks who do some of the less-visible tasks for the market: Artisan Coordinator Dia Chigas; Performance Coordinator David Gerratt; Volunteer Coordinator Helen Payne Watt; and our Sandwich Sign Savant Jude Aronstein. More visible and likewise awesome are Kids' Activity Coordinator Kennett Coleman, and Assistant Market Managers Kristi Twichell, Eleanor Chenevert, and Debby Andell. We extend the warmest welcome to our newest ABFM Leadership Board member, Amanda Jellen Dumont, who comes to us with farming experiences and expertise. And of course, we and ABFM vendors all appreciate the help of our terrific set-up and breakdown volunteers. This market would not happen without you all!
