Thank you for making our annual party/food drive a success!

January 20, 2013

The Waterville Valley Realty crew joins me in saying THANK YOU to everyone who helped make our 6th annual winter celebration a rousing success!

Who doesn’t love a party, right?  Well, this annual event has become more than just a party.  It’s an opportunity for our team to express our thanks and appreciation to our customers and clients.  It’s a chance for neighbors to meet, connect and reinforce that sense of “community” that makes Waterville Valley the special place we know and love.  It’s about the Waterville Valley business community sharing some love by contributing dozens of cool raffle prizes – ranging from Waterville Valley lift tickets to gift baskets and gift certificates.  And, it’s a time to show we care and share by collecting dozens of non-perishable food items for our local food pantry.

I enjoyed meeting many new people yesterday, including Jeannie, who helped remind me why I’ve been writing here for nearly six years.  Jeannie said, “Your blog is my daily connection to Waterville Valley…and it really helps create a sense of community.”  Thanks, Jeannie.  After writing thousands of blog posts, sometimes I wonder if anyone’s still reading.  It’s nice to be reminded that somebody’s still checking in here!

Speaking of community, I also loved meeting the Gatnik family.  They were the lucky winners of some cool raffle prizes, including a gift bag from Jugtown filled with logoed t-shirts, a sweatshirt, coffee mugs and a gift certificate.  Rob said, “This was the best party ever!”  Son, Charlie, concurred.

Well, there you have it.  Independent verification that Waterville Valley Realty’s 6th Annual Winter Celebration was AWESOME!

Check out a few photos I snapped during the party.
