VIRS' 10th Annual Yolande Henry Community Fund fundraiser, held last Saturday at the Alumni Auditorium at Champlain College in Burlington, was a wonderful success !! The performer, Arkady Belozovsky, was FABULOUS - whose stories and adventures were both funny and inspiring, and it was a joy to see so many members of the Deaf community come together in support of the Community Fund.

Special thanks to the interpreters who donated their time: Stephanie Cramer, Bridget McBride, Lindsey Bixler, Mechelle Palmer, Joan Pellerin and Patrick Galasso, and to the volunteers who helped with ticket sales and other logistics: Lynette Reep, Janet Dattilio, Margaret Paul, Mary Gordon, plus Sarah Launderville, Kim Brittenham and Shannon Reynolds, from VCIL. You all helped this event to be smooth and worry-free !!

An extra thanks goes out to Sorenson Communications who donated a beautiful 39" TV for the raffle, and whose name was inadvertently left off the list of contributors who were thanked in the program. Questions ? Call VIRS at 802 254-3920; VP 802 275-0104; email:
