Letter: Frost Biter's Bash was a huge success

Posted

To the editor:

The second annual Frost Biter’s Bash at the Herreshoff Marine Museum was a huge  success.

I want to thank all the sponsors, donors, committee members, and ticket-buyers for making this winter fund-raising event a fabulous evening. We are also thankful that the weather, which threatened to snow us out, ultimately relented and provided a nice winter scene with no new snow. The Museum was transformed into a magic venue with food stations supplied by local restaurants and caterers, bars, special lighting, games and music. Nearly 50 people, including volunteers and sponsors, worked tirelessly without compensation to help ensure that the party would be a success. The 200 people in attendance had a most enjoyable evening and at the same time provided essential support to the Museum.

This event was an example of how “Explore Bristol,” local media and businesses, can work together to make our town and our heritage even more recognized as the GEMS they are.
