Today, MINIsOnTop volunteers gathered at Michael & Pam’s house, for a bunch of “well done / thanks”, and check presentation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Maine, and (via Pete) the Mount Washington Observatory. James from Make-A-Wish of Maine kindly joined us to accept the check ($10,315.82) to- and to make a “thank you” presentation to us:
We also presented the Mount Washington Observatory check ($692.18); MWO could not attend, so Pete (who organizes the MWO tour during MOT each year) accepted the check on their behalf:
One further “presentation” this year was to Sarah & Richard – Sarah, with Brian, Sheena and Armen – pulled together MINIsOnTop donations this year, and Richard has acted as Loon liason and given the important Driver Speech every year during MINIsOnTop:
After running MINIsOnTop from 2006 to 2009, Theo, Michael and myself have chosen to step back a little and get some new ideas in to the event – and happily Richard & Sarah have chosen to team up and pull it all together for 2010 (and maybe after that too!) – so best wishes to them, and to MOT2010 (which will be June 25/26!)
Many thanks to everyone that supported MINIsOnTop 2009, especially all the un-named volunteers that make everything go so smoothly. Thanks also to Michael & Pam for once again hosting our after-MINIsOnTop mini-event, and thanks to James and Make-A-Wish of Maine for joining us, and for the lovely plaque!
