Dear Clifford:
Thank you for your generous donation of a full day guided riding for 2 plus 1 night stay to our 2019 Annual Auction Bash; which was held at the Brick South Events Center on Thompson’s Point on Friday, May 3, 2019. The event raised funds for our exhibits, educational programming, theatre, operations and memberships for families in need. Thank you so much for your support and for helping us to continue our mission of inspiring discovery and imagination through exploration and play
With gratitude,

Cliff - Thank you for an outstanding weekend. From your guidance in the trails to the delicious food, bird-watching and discussions around the table, to hone our skills so we can come back next year and see more of the 24+ miles we haven't yet traveled! If you are ever in NYC or Bend, let us know!

Just when I thought I knew how to ride the trails on a mountain bike... we completed a half-day session. Cliff gave us initial pointers, then we headed out to the trails for more hands-on experience. What a difference! Cliff was patient, and able to quickly articulate corrections on the fly. If you are out of shape, it might be a little difficult but we made regular stops. We look forward to returning!



Dear Back Country Excursion,

Wow, thank you for your generous donation to our Silent/ticket Auction at Buckfield Jr. & Sr. High School. Our school and community are touched by your willingness to help random students who have been working hard to raise funds for a senior class trip. It speaks of a companies character and beliefs when the business is giving back to the community and willing to help young people who may be less fortunate than most. Because of your donation, two students who may not have been able to attend the senior trip will be able to go. Thanks again for your two excursion passes with a value of $500 dollars.

Dear Back Country Excursions:

Thank you for your generous in-kind donation of «Item» valued at $250 to the Theater at Monmouth’s 2018 Silent Auction. As you know, the Theater at Monmouth cannot provide outstanding productions and quality educational experiences through ticket sales alone.

Donations like yours make our work possible, are essential to the Theater’s continued existence, and ensure access to the arts for audiences of all ages in our theatre and throughout the state. We are dedicated to producing engaging, entertaining, and educational programming that enriches the lives of our community.We sincerely appreciate your commitment to that mission. Simply put, with your support the show will go on.Thank you once again for your generous support,

Dawn McAndrews

Producing Artistic Director
