The final total raised for CERV, over the 12+ hours volunteers were there accepting donations, came to $394 and change.
The Northfield Democratic Party Committee members baked & purchased treats for the table, asked friends in town to bake or purchase goods, and also connected with the Northfield Farmers' Market managers. The wonderful Market Managers, Cassie & Charlie Morse, were able to collect additional donations from market vendors on the Sunday afternoon immediately preceding Monday's Open Session of Town Meeting -- Market Vendors who contributed delicious donations to help raise these funds for CERV included Farmor Farms, Kadric Bakery & Catering, Lightfoot Farms, and Two Wooden Spoons.
The Vermont Democratic Party on a state level, and the Northfield Democrats locally, promote and support the following Party Platform: 
The Vermont Democratic Party believes it is government’s role to protect and empower people to create equal access to health care, education, clean air and water, privacy, peace and prosperity. We believe in the right to organize and speak freely, and to earn a livable wage.
The Vermont Democratic Party values empathy and accountability.  We value an open government that provides its citizens with a strong voice. 
We hold these principles, goals and commitments in common as members of the Vermont Democratic Party and will work together and individually, to the best of our ability, to promote them as the guiding philosophy of a just and fair government.
As Chair and Vice Chair respectively, Aaron Rhodes and Elaine Stehel wish to thank all Committee Members, friends, and community members who contributed to the success of this table, enabling the Northfield Democrats to contribute nearly $400 to support Northfield's local food & clothing shelves, serving those in need in our community. 
The Northfield Democrats invite all interested individuals to find us on Facebook by searching, "Northfield Vermont Democratic Party," so that you may follow our page, rsvp to upcoming events, and become more involved if you also wish to promote and support Democratic values and candidates in our local community. 
Thank-you for your generosity, to all who contributed to this successful event!
