Evening Star Grange takes this opportunity to thank our Chairman Emeritus, Margaret Evans and her husband Bob, for their tireless effort to make this program happen each year. Without Margaret's hours on the telephone, her uncanny knowledge of who could do what, and how things should come together, this program would never happen. We love them dearly.

We wish to thank all who helped to make this evening an enjoyable one. Special thanks to the Brattleboro American Legion Band.,  VFW Color Guard and Auxiliary, Master of Ceremonies Chuck Fish, our speakers and musicians, and everyone else who helped in any way. Thanks to all of you for comming. We hope that you enjoyed the program.
