From Stephanie Hall:

Dear Howard,

If I was to pick the “star” of the Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society Fall Fair, She would be sleek and black and have the name “Bête Noir” emblazoned on her side!

How can we ever thank you enough!! Your wonderful “Black Beast” was such a hit!  Every time I looked up I saw a trail of kids getting their pictures taken Behind the wheel and when you fired her up….. INCREDIBLE!  She was like a movie star, followed around by flashing cameras and local paparazzi.

There was a terrific follow-up article in yesterday’s Port News… while I was hoping the full picture of her would be printed, I have to admit the attached picture of a baby propped behind her wheel is so wonderful!  I am attaching a few extra pictures (and may forward additional in a separate email…)

It is so hard for non-profit organizations these days.  We compete with each other and the economy for diminished discretionary funds from families that are sometimes struggling.  Your “Black Beast” and her “star power” was a draw to our fair that made a huge difference to our “bottom line”.

THANK YOU! Really, thank you so much from us all!

All the best and thank you again,

Stephanie Hall
