|Matt Best, expert shearer!|
Many thanks to the efforts of our shearers and our fabulous non-stop volunteers. Nicola Blake of West Tisbury, Jason Grovenburg of Chicago, Ethan Howard of Falmouth, Samuel and Caleb Hannon of Boston, and David Hannon of Edgartown, Charles and Luise Ronchetti of Lexington... you all went above and beyond!
Our staff was most impressive, coordinating efforts to make it possible to shear the 56 alpaca in record time-- averaging 7-1/2 minutes per alpaca! Many thanks to all: Simone Brewer, Andrea Figarato, Courtney Nigro Fitzgerald, Keily Hathaway, Rosmarie Jost, Ashliegh Plante, Elizabeth Stevenson -- it would not have been possible without any one of you!
