🌼🌻💐Happy Mother’s Day! 🌷🌺🌸🌼

An experiment for the environment.

Please help yourself to a REAL piece of silverware: a knife, spoon, or fork. We hope you will save it for use at work or in your vehicle when you are on the go. Use it over and over again and help us stop the use of one time plastic items that are destroying our environment. If you no longer need the real utensil~ return it (clean) and we will pass it along to the next person.
If you have any random REAL utensils you want to add to our collection- please make sure they are clean and we would be happy to have you share them so that we can further reduce disposable utensils.

Thank you for doing your part.

Greetings,

Every year for "The 19 Days" the pet contest is always so much fun and a
fantastic way to raise money for The Haven.
Today Mr. Boganles had about 150 vote lead. Online voting ended at noon,
walk in votes were recorded and registered until 5pm with Laura from The
Haven and I tallying the votes.
Here are the final results:
Charlie 722
Mr. Boganles 447
Quint 102
Buddy the Cat 85 and
Obie 55.

Charlie is the winner this year! Congratulations to Charlie, and thank you
to all who entered to help make this a very successful part of The 19 Days-
remember all of this will be matched by The Byrne Foundation.

Thanks for keeping it local,
Dan

Hair stylists raise money for charity in 'Battle of the Beauticians'

HUGE, HUGE Thank you to Diane's Casual Cuts (Diane and Laura) and Andrea's Hair Salon (Andrea,Sally and Kara).

Friday was the Battle of the Beauticians - the competition between Diane's Casual Cuts and Andrea's Hair Studio. All the hairdressers dressed up and customers stopped by all day voting on their favorite outfits my making donations.

This was the fifth year of this friendly competition. It has always been a competition to see who can raise the most money. This year, however something rather magical happened. When it came time to count the money, Sally said- what if we just dump all the money together and then count it. Everyone agreed, and it is so in keeping with the spirit of The 19 Days- everyone working together. From here on out- this event will be noted as
The BONDING of the Beauticians.
As the counting continued, the $2,0000.00, $1000.00, $500,00, $100.00 checks were there and equally important were the $10.00, $5.00 and $1.00 bills, every single donation makes a difference. The money was counted and the resulting total- are you ready for this:
$21,988.00.
And a true reflection of the dedication of these selfless ladies- Diane,Laura, Andrea, Sally and Kara
Each shop donated $6.00 to bring the grand total to exactly $22,000.00! Who knew! And remember all of this will be doubled by the Byrne Foundation (as well as any money notes as "19 Days" up to $130,000.00).

In Diane's shop there is a sign that reads:
I am a beautician, not a magician
I beg to differ- they certainly created some magic for The Haven!

Thank you to all who donated and especially to both Diane's and Andrea's for one of the most exciting and fun events during The 19 Days.

Thanks for keeping it local,

Dan Fraser

Although the snow this year may be a little early for some, there's something to be said for the snowball effect. Dan Fraser and Dan And Whits are a perfect example.

In 2013, a Dan & Whit's customer mentioned empty shelves in the Upper Valley Haven's Food Shelf while checking out at the store and Dan, king of ideas and fun (unofficial title, of course), thought of a way they could do something about that problem: donate 1% of sales during the first 19 days of December. That idea has since gained momentum not just in Norwich, but across the Upper Valley, with businesses and individuals thinking of creative ways to give back, and providing community members even more reason to shop local in support of those businesses.

Today is the first official day of the 6th Annual 19 Days of Norwich and Beyond! Please join Dan and Whit's and an impressive (growing) list of local businesses (see link below) in this initiative to raise funds to help those struggling this winter. We are consistently blown away by the giving spirit of the UV during December. It is a time of great need and you do so many wonderful things to help fulfill that need. Thank you!

Dan & Whit's will be open from 7am to Noon on Thanksgiving Day- Thursday, Nov. 22, 2018.

I know many are opposed to businesses being open on the holiday- here is the history behind that decision. Dan & Whit's used to be closed on Thanksgiving, but customers would call Dan Fraser, founder of Dan & Whit's, at home and ask him to open up for items they had forgotten. These calls occurred all day long and did not allow him any time to spend with his family enjoying the holiday. He came up with a brilliant solution- to open for half the day so that customers could purchase newspapers and last minute forgotten items. It provided customers an opportunity to get what they needed, but also gives our staff time to spend with their families.

Our employees only work the holiday if they volunteer to do so. And because we don't ask them to do anything we wouldn't- we work alongside them on Thanksgiving Day too.

We appreciate your patronage and we wish you all a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving filled with family and food. Thank you for reaching out and supporting those in need not only during the holiday season, but all year long.

Thanks for keeping it local,

Dan

A sincere thanks from the pizza winners. Bellow is a very thoughtful email that we received from Michelle. We are honored to make kids feel this way

"We just wanted to share some quick shots of us about to enjoy our pizza! Words can’t convey how appreciative we are of you and the rest of the crew at Dan and Whit’s. Above and beyond time and time again. When we were leaving yesterday, Lily said “Mom, I think the world would be a way better place if every town had a Dan and Whit’s.” My heart melted. Because I think she might be right. Also, the pizza was delicious!

With sincere appreciation,
Michele, Bill, Lily (age 9, MCS 4th grader) and Austin (age 5, MCS kinder)"
