The technical director and building manager is Paul Hunt. Jim Heidenreich is in charge of publicity and Scott Johnson is the librarian and histo- rian. In at-large positions, Brian Kenyon was elected to serve as at- large publicity member, Robert O'Leary as at-large fund raising, Brenda Danielson as at-large volun- teer coordinator and Brendan Chadwick as at-large props man- ager. Another bylaw change approved was to change the membership year to reflect the calendar year. A lively discussion ensued about member- ship which gave the new board some direction for action on that subject for 2015. Cheryl Boucher of Groton and Barbara Bullard of Woodsville were the two winners drawn to receive a lifetime season ticket. SANTA CLAUS The Operation Santa Claus project marks its 36th year of service to the commu- nity this 2014 holiday season. Because of the continued support of generous donations of area residents, businesses and organizations, many children from lower-income fami- lies have found under their family tree, gifts of warm clothing, safe toys, games, books, arts and crafts and more. Operation Santa Claus members include those who plan, shop, select, and pack these gifts for over 200 children each year. The effort also includes those such as yourself who donate funds for the project each year. Our continued vision is to serve the neediest children of Bradford, Piermont, Fairlee, West Fairlee, Corinth, Topsham, Orford, Vershire and Newbury. These unwrapped gifts are purchased and distributed to the parents in early December. Operation Santa is like many other volunteer groups around the state, who de- pend on your generous support to make our project operate. We are asking for your support now. Many times we hear people say, "I was never asked," so please consider yourself asked. This very worthwhile project relies solely on the generosity of community members and businesses. Please help. Send your contributions to: OPERATION SANTA CLAUS P.O. Box 115 Bradford, VT 05033 Best wishes to you and yours, OPERATION SANTA CLAUS COMMITTEEj
