Thanks extended to magic show supporters

On behalf of the Millstone Township Foundation for Education Excellence (MTFEE), I would like to express our enormous gratitude to everyone for making our "Family Fun Magic Show with Eric Paul" a great success! We hope you all enjoyed watching the show as much as we enjoyed planning it for you. Thank you for coming to see our program and supporting the foundation, which in turn will provide many more educational enrichment opportunities to our children.

We would also like to thank all of the MTFEE trustees that tirelessly worked to put forth our magic show. Thank you, Jewell Bednarz, Jim Befarah, Holly Dietz, Greg Dey, Dr. Mary Anne Donahue, Laura Dreifus, Mary Ann Friedman, Allyson Jeffrey, Dixie Lane, Lisa Lane, Lynn Mele, Dee McClain, Dr. William Setaro, Laura and Kevin Wittman, and Cory Wingerter.

Thank you to the Prudential New Jersey Properties Millstone office concession staff of Dianne Cain, Theresa Guttridge, Joe San Nicola and Sal Strano. Thanks also to Carol Wingerter for helping us with our Friday night show, and to Beverly Dey for selling concessions during our Saturday night show.

Thank you to our youngest staff members, Olivia, Lauren, Shannon, Colin, Kali, Eva, Mark and the countless other "half-pint" helpers.

We would also like to say a special "thank you" to Jenelle Shimko for her beautiful rendition of "Proud to Be an American." She is a very gifted young singer that amazed the audience with her talent! We thank our "good sports," Laura Vetere, Dr. Setaro and Judy Mazzucco for allowing "Eric Paul the Magician" to saw them in half and give us all a great laugh!

Thank you to the Millstone Elementary School staff, including all the teachers and administrators for graciously helping us to put on a winning magic show. Without your help, our production would not have been successful. Special thanks to the supervisor of buildings and grounds, Hersey Mayeux and his fine staff, Art Mearizo, Henry Ward and Nester Nahachzewski

A gigantic thanks to all of the local stores and business for their sponsorship commitment. We support you, too! We especially want to mention Fran and Jack Wheatley for allowing us to use their popcorn machines and supplies, and also Charlie and Yvonne Hanna for the use of their "slushy" machines and flavorings. We would also like to extend our gratitude to Bob Paul for lending us his truck for all of our transportation needs. Thanks everyone!

We look forward to seeing all of you at our upcoming "Harlem Wizards Comedy Basketball Game" March 9 at 2 p.m. in the Peddie gymnasium in Hightstown.
