To the editor:
The Monticello Lions Club and the Lions Brewfest Committee would like to take this moment to thank all the folks who attended our Brewfest Event in West Bridge Park on Saturday, Aug. 18. We could not have asked for a better turn out, a more beautiful day or more support from those without whose help we could not have pulled it off.
To our sponsors, we owe a debt of gratitude, they trusted our vision of this event and contributed to it in the name of our charitable efforts. We hope you feel that your investment was worthwhile, welcome your involvement in this event in the future, and thank you for your friendship and your belief in us.
Thanks to our friends in the craft beer community, the area beer distributors, and representatives from all the breweries that donated their product for sampling, all in the support of our event whose sole purpose was to raise funds to continue our charitable efforts in Monticello.
We’d like to recognize our food vendors, who took a leap of faith and got on board with the Lions for a trip into uncharted territory, thank you and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Hope to see you next year!
Thanks to all the “civilians” (non-Lions members) who pitched in to help…family and friends of Lions members who helped out just because, others who helped with planning and crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s.
And last, but certainly not least….we’d like to recognize the beer-loving patrons, those who reached into their pockets and bought tickets for an event that had never been done before in Monticello, with no way of knowing whether it would be a boom or a bust, simply taking that leap of faith with the Monticello Lions Club, betting that a good idea and a beautiful Saturday in August would come together for the fun time we all had.
Thank you so much! We’ll see you next year!
