To the Editor:
The Danville Heritage Commission would like to thank all who contributed to the success of our recent Timeless Brides fashion show and exhibition. Those who attended the event, along with many volunteers and donors, helped us raise enough money to purchase a New Hampshire Historical Highway Marker for Danville’s Webster Stagecoach Stop & Store.
We are grateful for the time volunteered by Elizabeth McIntyre, Victoria McIntyre, Lauren Rich, Asya Lang, Anna Hutchinson, Mae-Lynn Hutchinson, Jaelee Hutchinson and Callie Balser, who joined three Heritage Commission members to model sixteen historical bridal gowns for the audience.
We appreciate the hours of hairstyling services donated by Jessica Guilmette and make-up assistance by Danielle Rocco for the models, as well as help from Rachel Hutchinson with gown-tending during the show.
Special vintage bridal gowns loaned by Deb and Peter Meigs of the Hawke Historical Society, Angie Cyr, Sandy Nelson, Claudine Dias, Martha Swiderski and Marguerite Guilmette added a personal touch to the event and were very much appreciated.
Dress forms loaned by the Atkinson Historical Society and Danville residents Sarah Weston, Christie Caillouette, Jen Baz and Debbi Dolce made it possible to display an additional seventeen gowns at exhibits throughout the hall.
Those who attended the event enjoyed the historical narrative by Heritage member, Linda Roth and viewing of thirty-three vintage bridal gowns spanning a century of time. We were pleased to receive several monetary donations, and give special thanks to Sandy Nelson and Barry Hantman. We appreciate the assistance of all who made this event so memorable and helped us meet our fundraising goal.
Carol Baird, Chairman
