On behalf of the board of trustees of the Perinton Historical Society, I would like to thank the businesses, Fairport Perinton Merchants Association members, individuals, organizations and society members who together were responsible for donating 52 beautifully decorated trees, wreaths, gift baskets, gift certificates and other one-of-a-kind items for the Perinton Historical Society’s third annual Yuletide Traditions fundraiser.
The board is especially appreciative of the generosity of so many who supported this fundraiser during the four-week long silent auction by bidding on the variety of items and want to thank the 33 final winners, some who even took home several items. Over $2,100 was raised to benefit the Perinton Historical Society’s educational programs, activities, exhibits, as well as operational expenses for the Fairport Museum, located at 18 Perrin St.
Businesses who donated include Karen & William Allen, Ambiance Design Gallery, Carol Boas, Sue Broda, Anne Johnston & May Thomson, Marlene Caroselli, Casa Larga Vineyards & Winery, Ann Castle, Church of the Assumption, Audrey Connelley, The Corner Bookstore, Craft Bits and Pieces, Diane Prince Furniture and Gifts, Fairport Rotary, Cindy German, Girl Scout Troop 60336, Terry Holt, Bob Hunt, The Inn on Church, Suzanne Lee, Joyce Lyle, Mark’s Pizzeria, Karen Martin, Eric Matson, Fotominnen, Lucy McCormick, Notar/Mulley Family, Betsy Ogles, Perinton Quilt Guild, Susan Prener, Vicki Masters Profitt, Red Bird Market, Revelations Design Studio, Rita Prince State Farm, Jolene & Fred Smith, Jane Stock & Carol Klinger, Supergirl Fitness, Sue Templeton, Sylvia Vecellio, Linda Wiener, Barb Wild, Wagonjack Antiques, Wegmans Perinton, Glen Peters and Narda Hellwig.
Once again, a sincere thank you to all who made this year’s fundraiser a fun and successful event. Happy New Year.
Bob Hunt, president of the Perinton Historical Society
