The Great Dickens Christmas Fair Missive
Great Dickens Christmas Fair 2016 - December Missive #4
Notes from your Missive Maven:

Another season is completed and we have many tales to tell. 
Closing weekend was incredible with great performances, stunning impromptu moments and even a marriage proposal at church! 

Today we have some lovely new photos from Beppe Sabatini
including the stunning portrait of the Christmas Carol cast below.

We are also on the cover of the online version of an article in the Parade Magazine article "How America Celebrates the Holiday Season".
Parade is the most widely read magazine in America, included in over 700 newspapers

Wishing you a little quiet time with friends and chosen families, 
warm moments and fine food, celebrations and safe travels. 
We'll all see each other very soon and next year in London!

Thank You

The season we just shared was quite special.  Many things came together seamlessly to create perhaps the best Dickens Fair ever.  ...And it improved in wonderful ways each weekend.  This happens because of our collective effort; our character development, our craftsmanship, collaboration, cooperation, and all the pieces of our presentation that fit together to form the tapestry of the Fair.

It will feel strange not being together this weekend.  We have just celebrated 11 Christmas Eves together.  
...we will therefor naturally share a 12th one tomorrow night in spirit!

It is a wonder and a delight, what we create together.  Thank you for a fabulous Season and thank you for all the parts that you play.

With tremendous love and admiration,

Kevin & Leslie, Andrew and Michael, and the whole Red Barn team

"I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future!" Scrooge repeated, as he scrambled out of bed. "The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me." 
"Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all, and infinitely more; and to Tiny Tim, who did not die, he was a second father. He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough, in the good old world. "


Thank You from R.E.S.C.U.

Happy Holidays everyone!  I am both humbled and very excited to let you know the final total of what we, the Dickens Family, raised this year.

Participants Raised $3,357
Red Barn Matched$3,357

We not only met and exceeded the goal of $5,000 for this year, we have also surpassed the goal of $5,500 for 2017! Our goal and challenge for all of us for 2017 is that can we match or exceed this total.

Thank you all very much!
