BARS volunteers celebrating a successful fund raiser

Thank you to the indispensable volunteers, recyclers, and the Town of Barnstable for making the BARS bottle and can recycling fundraiser a record making month for BARS. We raised $6,700 during the month of July for scholarships and other BARS activities. Dick Rogoff has donated and additional $300 so that our total would reach $7000. This donation is very much appreciated as it was unexpected.

The indispensable volunteers were: Dick Ossen, Bill Shumway, Fred Dempsey, André & Elsa Sampou, Bill Hemr, Frank Rendulic, Rick Ryan, Bob Parsons, Paul Dias, Bev & Jim Scarlett, Dennis Dias, Bob Silva, Bette Silva, Steve Hoxie, Keith Hochstein, Don Haviland, Tom Goggin, Dick Rogoff, Jason Rogoff, Betsy Higgins, Matt Viens, Tom Lipinski, Peter Eleftherakis, Ernest Kenney, Len DiLorenzo, George Lloyd, Ralph Krau, Rolene Hutchinson, Danielle Lemur, Paul Wasilewski, Wayne Lish, Norm Wilson, Don Capobianco, Anita LaConte, Joe & Mary Doolin, Don & Kay McLellan, Pat & Ellie McLaughlin, and Penny Scott.

A very special thank you from the BARS Board of Directors and BARS members to Ron Glantz for organizing this effort and spending all day, every day, at the Recycling Center for the whole month of July. Your hard work never went unnoticed, and was very much appreciated.
