SPARTA, NJ – On Monday morning approximately 35 volunteers came to the Lake Mohawk County Club boardwalk to build six huts for the German Christmas Market. Despite the chill in the air they came, some with tools and experience, others with a can do attitude but all with a willingness to contribute to the event.
John Quinlan from Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice, was there to lend a hand. Quinlan said, “After last year’s award ceremony I was so impressed with the number of organizations the German Christmas Market supported. So I raised my hand. I was blown away.”
Quinlan reached out to Susan Campbell, Home Depot manager. Campbell brought Kathy Hulser, Russell Sweeten, Gregory Perry, Scott Reed, Melissa Messina, George Romano, Edward Tarrant, Michael Kapp, Anthony Defelice, George Lavalle, Mari Tarrant, Eric Crawbuck, Edward Hazen, George Muehl, Susan Campbell.
Campbell said, “We had a great time building the huts. I can tell you that this was the first year that we have participated in this project and it was a great Team Building experience for us. We really like the idea that we helped out and made a difference.”
T Love of the Quantum Wellness was also there to do what she could to help.
The Sparta German Christmas Market, the largest of its kind in the state, begins on Saturday, Dec 5 from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. and on Sunday, Dec 6 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
