Southshire Community School in North Bennington, Vt. held its annual Spring Gala on Saturday, April 6 to raise money for its transportation fund. Held in the basement at the Vermont Arts Exchange in North Bennington, the event featured live jazz by the Leah Carroll Quintet, a silent auction, an art show, dancing, hors d'oeuvres, and a cash bar. The event raised almost $4,000 to facilitate off-site learning opportunities and weekly swim lessons. Southshire Community School's teachers, students and parents would like to extend a deep, heartfelt thank you to the following contributors - without them none of this would have been possible: Aimee Davis; Anytime Fitness; Bakkerij Krijnen; Buxton School; Cabot Creamery; Clover Leaf Farm; Dr. and Mrs. Richard Dundas; Enable; EZ Way Rental; G.
