As a follow-up to the article “Support takes Flight for Vernon Pilot,” the family and friends of Eric and Shannon Nolting would like to express their heartfelt thanks to all the people that contributed to the tremendous success of the group garage sale July 7.
The overwhelming response included truckloads of items dropped off for the garage sale, an enthusiastic volunteer turnout and the donation of dozens of cupcakes and other baking.
Thanks to the hundreds who attended the sale, the majority of who paid higher than the ticketed price for most items, and bought hotdogs, baking and “Eric’s Army” T-shirts.
Thanks also to the many others who attended only to drop off cash donations and the pilot who contributed in his own unique way. While the financial contributions were huge and most welcome, it was also the love, encouragement and support that the community shared that will continue to assure this family that they are not in this fight alone.
Vernon, you are amazing and each and every one of us is proud to be a member of this caring and supportive community.
Family and friends of Eric
and Shannon Nolting
