Dear Green Fest supporters,
Your generosity over the past year has been overwhelming, considering the troubled times many of our neighbors are experiencing.
We are committed to bring this free festival to the community so citizens can learn as much as possible about the many opportunities available to save money, energy and our planet.
But we cannot present a successful Green Fest without the help of like-minded people who are able to give something to the cause.
The first Green Fest, held last May, was so well received it humbled us all. We didn’t even take a vote on whether to plan a second festival. It was understood that come the second Saturday in May – the day before Mother’s Day – we would again be greeting hundreds of men, women and children of all ages in one of the nicest, most meaningful events staged in Shafer Park.
We did not do this alone. Our families stood behind us and worked beside us, 85 amazing vendors showed up even under the threat of bad weather, scores of volunteers pitched in all day and people from the entire community devoted some of their weekend to investigate this new idea called “Boonsboro Green Fest”.
One of the most encouraging things that happened throughout the planning stages of this first-of-a-kind event in Boonsboro, was the support that we received from our sponsors and door prize donors.
They wanted to be a part of the project and they gave what they could. Monetary donations ranged from $5 to $200, while donated prizes ranged from a modest shopping bag to a night at Inn BoonsBoro, Nora Roberts’ upscale hotel in downtown Boonsboro.
If you are able to support the Green Fest by being a sponsor, donating a door prize or volunteering your time on May 8, 2010, please step forward.
We will recognize you on this page and in our program guide which will be distributed the day of the festival.
And your generosity will be appreciated by the entire community.
Thank you and best regards from a grateful…
Boonsboro Green Fest 2010 Committee
