Letter: Fantastic, thanks to you

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who played a part in this year’s Rappahannock Night at Camp Fantastic. Once again, it was a huge success!

The committee — Sandra Jenkins, Marie Davis, Jan Makela and Jim Blubaugh — was invaluable in planning this event. Charlotte Turnmeyer and Geneva Welch offered face painting. Sheriff Connie Smith, Major Scott Jenkins, D.A.R.E. Officer Tony Jenkins and Art Smith were there with a snow cone machine and kept them coming all evening. Jeff Brown, his daughter, Catherine, and Howard Massey provided cotton candy, and music was provided by No Drama. Roley Poley (aka Beth Swindler) entertained the crowd while making pipe cleaner animals, Trey Swindler impressed the crowd with his one-handed juggling, Kathy Gangel and Franklin’s Photography mingled with the crowd, snapping photographs throughout the event.

The many restaurants, individuals, and civic clubs who made donations include: Melting Pot, Muskrat Haven, Country Cafe, Griffin Tavern, Washington Baptist Church Sojourners for Christ, Kathy Gangel, Ellen Mustoe, Settle’s Grocery, Settle’s Cars and Trucks, the Inn at Little Washington, Rappahannock Lions’ Club and Liz Blubaugh, Persimmon Springs Florist (Donna Brune), Sandra Jenkins, Carol Hackley, Dorothy Hackley, Amissville United Methodist Adult Class, Baldwin’s Lawn Care (Richie Baldwin), Rappahannock Mini Storage (Jay Miller), Andrick’s Gifts and Collectibles, Sperryville Corner Store, Nothin’ Fancy, Stoneyman Gourmet, Baumgardner, Brown & Cupp, Alan Dranitzke, Gay Street Inn, Peggy Ralph, Lisa Welsted, Hampton Foundation and FT Valley Grocery, Charles and Lynda Clem, Rose Shaffer, Olga Flick, Carol Marangoni, Deborah Landis and Elaine Hix.
