November 2011


On behalf of the residents, Municipal Alliance Committee and governing body of Demarest, thank you for your donation for this year’s Demarest Day!


Due to budget constraints thus year, plans were to possibly scale back certain activities that have been a part of past Demarest Day celebrations.


Thanks to the unprecedented response and generosity from residents and businesses, we were able to provide almost everything offered in the past and some new activities.


Despite rescheduling due to weather and sub-optimal weather conditions on the rescheduled date, we had a fantastic turnout.  I have never seen such lines of people for the food that volunteers and businesses distributed.  I also saw nothing but smiling faces on the children.


It is very gratifying to see residents and area businesses respond in such a generous way, especially in this difficult economy.  To see so many take a vested interest in their community says volumes of what kind of community Demarest is, indeed what kind of people we have here in Demarest and the surrounding communities.  It makes us proud to be a part of this community.


Again, thank you very much for your support and generosity.
