To the Editor:

The Deer Meadow PTO would like to thank the following helpers and sponsors of the Deer Meadow Winter Festival on Feb. 11.

The festival was a great success thanks to the generosity of the community. A big thank you to the very impressive groups that worked the games the entire evening -- GHS Ambassadors, Greencastle Christian Church One80 Group, South Putnam High School Ambassadors, 4-H Junior Leaders and DePauw Football Seniors -- and to the creative talents of the DePauw art students and Jim Hardwick.

Special thanks to McDonald's, Marvin's and Kroger for their assistance with the dining arrangements.

Additionally, PTO greatly appreciated the help of the Greencastle Police Department and Chaplains, who drew raffle winners throughout the evening, and the Putnam County Sheriff's Department for donning their uniforms and making the jail game a very fun activity for the kids.

Finally, a big thanks to the following businesses that donated monetarily or provided items that made the raffle such a great success due to the amazing donations they provided: AA Huber & Sons, Aldi, Almost Home, Ambler Hill Florist, American Family Insurance, Applebee's, Arby's, Ashley Square Cinemas, AutoZone, Autumn Glen, Bags, Embroidery and More, Banner Graphic, Barnes & Noble, Bellacino's, Best Buy, Big Bounce Fun House Rentals, Brad Tucker State Farm Insurance, Brazilian Lanes in Brazil, Bright Futures, Buffalo Wild Wings, Burger King, Butler's LP & Fertilizer, CarQuest Auto Parts, Casa Grande, Cass & Co Salon (Sarah Cottrell), Cash Concrete, Charbonos, Cheesecake Factory, Chick-Fil-A, Children's Museum, Chili's Grill & Bar, Cloverdale Holiday Inn Express, Conner Prairie, Covered Bridge Cyclery, Cracker Barrel, Crackers Comedy Club, Craftmakers 2 Gift Shop, Creative Outdoor Products Inc., Cross Cuts, Culligan of Putnam County, Culver's, Curves for Women, Custom Creations & More, Dairy Queen, Dave's Heating & Cooling, DePauw University, Dick's Barber Shop, Dixie Chopper, Don's Garage, Dr. Wayne Lewis, D'S Cleaners, DSW, Eiteljorg Museum, Sitel's Flowers & Gifts, Extreme Tanning, Fairway Restaurant, Family Video, Fashion Bug, Fazoli's, First Baptist Preschool, First Financial Bank, First National Bank, GHS Bookstore, Garl's Bike Shop, Golf Headquarters, Great Clips, Greencastle Music Center, Greencastle Police Department, Greencastle Super Wash, HBG Insurance & Bonds, Headley Hardware, Hennette Pediatric Dentistry, Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, Hoods & Capers, Hoosier Blue Flame, Horizon Business Center, HSMB Insurance Services, Humble Pie, Humphrey's, Identity Hair Salon (Erica Corbin), Indiana Beach Amusement Resort, Indiana Ice, Indiana Pacers, Indiana State Museum, Indianapolis Colts, Indianapolis Indians, Indianapolis Zoo, J & BJ's Bait & Tackle, Jackson's Family Restaurant, James W.
