Letters: Your thanks

Editor of the Reformer:

Kudos and many thanks to Windham and Windsor Housing Trust for finally implementing a non-smoking policy for ALL of its apartments. This policy will also include non smoking on any grounds of its housing, effective April 15, 2016.

Some of Windham and Windsor Housing Trust properties are already non-smoking. Yay to making all of them the same! The time has come. Other tenants, including myself, are joyous that this is finally going to happen. Secondhand smoke, that we smell, stinks, and is terrible for us tenants already compromised by other illnesses. Open windows do nothing but send your smoke our way, so to those who disregard the new policy, someone is going to smell "you."

Thanks Connie Snow, Tim Callahan, Morey Page, Ginger Gaudette, Deb Zak and anyone else whose name I am not familiar with. Most of us in agreement had our lease addition signed and in the mail the same day!!

April 15th — A great day!

On behalf of some of Windham County's more vulnerable people the Windham County Heat Fund would like to thank all of those who made this year's Ladies of the Rainbow such a success. Special thank you to New Chapter and its employees who were very generous sponsors of this year's fundraiser.

Also thank you to Mama Mayhem and her crew who provided their special brand of adult entertainment to an appreciative and enthusiastic audience as well as to Amber Pillsbury, Sarah Houle and to the Brattleboro Reformer, the Commons and WKVT for great pre-event publicity. Winter has been late this year but it is here for awhile and the Heat Fund will be able to make sure local people can stay warm as the snow and cold shows up. Thank you to everyone who helped to add such a large amount of money to the fund's account.

On behalf of the Brattleboro Boys' Varsity hockey team and the Brattleboro Hockey Educational Trust, we would like to thank you for your contributions to our program. Our team is responsible for raising $9,500 each season to help defray the cost of the hockey program. Local businesses and individuals like yourselves have made our fundraising efforts a success.

From one time donations to yearly contributions, this community has been vital in the sustainability of our program and allows our youth to continue to play the game they love. The experience of a hockey team is one that promotes dedication, hard work, teamwork, communication, and pursuit of goals. These qualities and characteristics that these young men are learning will serve them well as they will eventually be the next generation of workers and citizens.

The families of these players and the coaching staff know the financial struggles of many in our area. It is the support of this town and this community that helps us to remain a successful program to mold responsible young people. It is important that we keep our student athletes active and competitive in a great environment.

Thanks to the following businesses for their support: Foard Panel, Inc., D.M.I., Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery, Brattleboro Pharmacy, Evans Construction, Perkins Air Care and Propane Services, Pure Green Tees, Green Mountain Tent Rentals, Fletcher Auto Inc., Professional Dental Care, and Lawton Flooring Design, The Hotel Pharmacy, The Richards Group.

A special thanks to the Brattleboro Elks, B.P.O.E. #1499 for their continued support throughout the years and donating the space to hold the spaghetti dinner each year. Thanks to Nicole Zolnoksi, John Martell, and Zippo Frechette for their continued support through the years at the spaghetti dinner.

We hope that you will continue to be a part of the Brattleboro Hockey family in years to come and thank you for all that you have done for us in years past. Parents and players alike contribute time and money to compliment these funds through their own donations and other team functions. Hockey is a special game that teaches special lessons and we thank you for being a part of our great program.

The family of Harry Y. Twiss Jr. would like to express their deep appreciation for the outpouring of sympathy shown to us after his death. The many cards, phone calls and visits from friends and family were appreciated and helped us through a difficult time.

We have been touched by all those who shared and continue to share their memories of him with us.

We would like to extend a special thank you to the group from the Vermont State Police, the Army Military Funeral Honor Post, Pastor Doug LaPlant and his wife Marylou, the Ladies of the Jacksonville Church and Shea Family Funeral Home.

Please forgive us if we've forgotten anyone here.

We are sincerely grateful for the kindness and generosity extended to us.

Lynn Twiss and Steve Martineau and family, Peter Twiss and family, and Mike and Nancy Russell and family Westminster West, March 3
