To the Editor:
The committee for the 25th Annual Chester Winter Carnivale was quite disappointed to have to cancel Carnivale on Sunday, Feb. 15. With blizzard warnings and travel advisories in place, cancellation was unavoidable. There was simply no way to have the all-day outdoor event go on with the bitter cold and 40 mph winds.
Heartfelt thanks to all who worked so hard for many months planning the event, which will be nearly impossible to reschedule.
Carnivale has been made possible through the generous donations of time, talent and funds from residents, businesses and supporters of the Chester Merchants. The committee would especially like to thank those who generously contributed $500 or more: Aaron Manor; All-Waste; Archambault Insurance Company; Peter H. Charbonnier; Cummings & Good; First Niagara Bank; Mario S. Gioco; Greenwald Industries; Roto-Frank; Shepherd, Miller, Finkelman & Shah; Stark Agency Insurance; Town of Chester; and Whelen Engineering.
