I am writing today to thank all the vendors, merchants and participants for a very successful Ladies Night Out.

This was our 20th year with this event and I am honored to be called the event chairperson. As this is only my third year running the event, I am so happy to say that this year was one of the best yet. The weather was perfect, the vendors were amazing and the merchants all put out the best for our customers.

Our special dedication to the "Queen for a Day" was an honor to be part of. Susan Dickes has been such a vibrant part of the community and we were so happy to give to her as she so deserved.

I want to extend many thanks to all the merchants who donated a gift to her. The list in no particular order is:

B&R Liquors, Bertolini & Co., Forever Jewelers, Avanti, Warwick Historical Society, Frazzleberries, Wine & Design, Etched in Time, WV Olive Oil Co. and Newhard's.

Also: Reclaimed, Charlotte's Tea Room, Barbara Laurence, Halligan's Public House, Trattoria Viviano, Style Counsel, Blarney Station, Yesterdays, Akin's Pharmacy and Henry's Deli.

Also: Landmark Inn, G's Restaurant, Rooster Tees, The Junction, Fannie's, Jean Claude's, The Computer Guy, Ye Olde Warwick Book Shoppe, Peck's Wine & Spirits and The Candy Apple Shoppe.

Also: Charlene's Hair Design, Warwick Valley Bed & Breakfast, Bellvale Farms Creamery, Noble Pies, WTBQ, Lisa's Cookie Shop, Grappa Ristorante, Penning's Farm Market, Caffe Ala Mode and Long Spring.

Also: Tuscan Cafe, Scheuermann's Farm, Mima's, Luca's, Lai Shun, Bertoni Gallery, Franico's, Wolfie's, Sister Snaps Jewelry, Paper Heart Co. and Eddie's Roadhouse.

I also want to send a special thank you to Corwin's for the beautiful flower presentation and Vogel and Moore Nationwide Insurance for the crown.

Your generosity will not go unnoticed and we are forever grateful.

Here's to hoping next year is even better.
