To the Editor,

Shady Valley celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Cranberry Festival October 13th – October 14th. Friday evening, October 13th, we kicked the event schedule off with the Bean Supper and Auction. The success of this important fundraising event for the Cranberry Committee Scholarship Fund and for Shady Valley Elementary School was brought about by people from our community, our neighbors, and the people and businesses who donated services and items to the auction. I am in awe of your generosity!
I especially want to thank all our craft vendors, food vendors, entertainers, and parade participants who helped us celebrate Saturday’s festivities. A special thank you to the cranberry committee for their behind the scenes hard work, and all the volunteers for helping us with the parking and for all the kind support and cooperation throughout the year. Your actions are the essence of a true partnership.
Lastly, I want to thank our staff. I count my blessings each and every day that I am surrounded by amazing people who are passionate about helping our students.
Thank you for your support,

Dana Smith
Principal,
Shady Valley Elementary
