On behalf of the Senior Activity Center and Just Basics, Inc., we thank all who made the June 7th Vintage Edition Montpelier Fashion Show and Practical Auction so successful. The fundraiser raised $2,000 to support the expenses for the Montpelier Home Delivered Meals program, also known as “Meals on Wheels” and “Feast at Home.” It will cover hundreds of meals to support the basic nutritional and socialization needs of some of your most vulnerable older friends and neighbors, prepared at Montpelier Senior Activity Center by Chef Justin Turcotte of Good Taste Catering and staff/volunteers!
Special thanks to Anne-Marie Keppel of Amare Events for event coordination and for celebrating the legacy of her ten-year run of Montpelier Fashion Shows by supporting such an important program! We’re also grateful to Hannah Bean of The GetUp Vintage, hosts Dona Bate and Megan Ruprecht, and DJ Fred Wilber, who all contributed to the success of the show and auction. Northfield Savings Bank is appreciated for sponsoring the event.
Finally, we’d like to thank all the models, volunteers and attendees who created a lively atmosphere celebrating vintage clothing and music from the 1920s to ‘90s while raising money for Meals on Wheels!
Additional donations to Just Basics Inc. to support the Feast senior nutrition program or the Montpelier Food Pantry may be sent to 137 Main St. in Montpelier. Call 262-6288 for more info.
