Nobles Parents' E-Newsletter November 2013

From the PA Co-Chairs

We would like to thank all members of the Nobles community who donated their attic treasures, spent countless hours sorting, pricing and selling items, baked delicious treats and made numerous deliveries of leftover items to local charities on behalf of the Nobles Yard Sale. You are all extraordinary for giving so much of yourselves and making a difference for so many.

We are grateful to Yard Sale Co-Chairs Suzanne Vocatura and Connie Dawson for their dedication and service to Nobles and the greater Dedham Community. They deserve a standing ovation for the outstanding work they did to make this year’s sale incredibly successful, raising money for Nobles scholarships, and uniting the community.
