On behalf of the Woodlawn trustees and staff, I want to thank the hundreds of people who helped make the 2019 Ellsworth Antiques Show at Woodlawn a huge success. Our thanks go to our presenting sponsors Boston Private Wealth and Skinner Auctioneers, and to the many area business sponsors who supported our efforts with generous donations. The amazing venue was created by the crews of Wallace Events, E.L. Shea and King Electric — we thank you for your hard work. To the 31 dealers who traveled many miles over land and sea to exhibit and sell their wares, thank you.
We appreciate the hours given by our dedicated volunteers, the Ellsworth Noontime Rotarians who helped park cars and the members of the Ellsworth Lioness Club who joined us in serving guests at the opening night festivities. Thanks go to Chipper’s Restaurant & Catering and Airline Brewing Co., who kept our guests well fed and hydrated. Jazzyaz, Minor Characters, Fogtown Brewing Co. and the SPCA of Hancock County entertained our guests and enhanced their experience. And lastly, thank you to our guests, without whom there would be no show.
These combined efforts by so many will help expand educational programming for area students. The proceeds from the Ellsworth Antiques Show benefit the Woodlawn Education Fund. This fund allows students to participate in Woodlawn school programs free of charge, including transportation as needed.
Together we made it happen! Thanks again, and I look forward to seeing you at the 2020 show.
