The Community Economic Development Association of Pollock Pines (CEDAPP) wishes to express heartfelt appreciation to the estimated 150 people who attended the first Winterfest Party in the Pines last night.
We are humbled and ecstatic at the same time that so many folks from across the entire county showed up in such huge numbers to support our little community and its continuing “drive to thrive” as a rural community in a very difficult economic period of time.
Personal thank you letters will be sent to all the volunteers and those who contributed with raffle and silent auction items, but we must publicly say thank you to Dragonfly Acres (EDC’s newest venue — hot spot — for exciting events), Sierra At Tahoe for its partnership, Chateau D’avell and Madrona Wineries and Gold Hill Vineyard and Brewery.
Whether people were dancing to Cowboy Neal or enjoying the sounds of Marty Lee, the “climate” at Winterfest was warm, inviting and the perfect time and place to meet new folks to party with.
CEDAPP hosts events all throughout the year, most of which are free to attend for children and adults, but this was a fundraiser when the numbers really do count. So again, from Emily Valdez, the project manager, and the CEDAPP Board, thank you to all of you who believe in us, and help us to keep Pollock Pines pristine in its environment and healthy in its economy.
