Close readers of the commentary will note that we have had an exciting competition. Many staff, even some faculty, and numerous students all participated in the construction of a St. Nicholas Miter. Each completed miter entitled the person to be entered into a drawing, with the winner receiving some VTS swag, or a bottle of VTS Bicentennial wine, or the non-alcoholic cider.
Given the interest in the drawing, I am pleased to announce that we have three winners. These are: Addie Tapp, Kathleen Hurney, and Alec Jones. Please go and see John, our fabulous receptionist, in the Welcome Center to select your prize.
Thank you to everyone who participated. Most important of all, to construct the Miter you needed to visit the St. Nicholas Exhibit. It is an extraordinary opportunity to encounter St. Nicholas in all his mystery and beauty. In that respect, everyone was a winner. Please continue to bring guests to the Welcome Center.
