Kate Mountain Music Festival thanks

To the editor:

It was another successful year for the Kate Mountain Music Festival, despite the weather. On behalf of Kate Mountain Community Recreation Association Inc.; I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following:

Ralph Housman, Phil Henry, Those 2 Guys, Movin’ On, Theresa Hartford, Donald Perkins, County Line, Polar Vortex, Josee Allard, Fade to Blues and all the other musicians who joined us by taking part in this year’s Kate Mountain Music Festival. To Joel and Phil Perkins and everyone who helped with the sound system, you all did a great job despite the cool day and rainy afternoon; Pat Romeo for providing the drum kit for the day so all the bands could just step on stage to perform without the timely setup; the Bloomin’ Market for providing ice for the event; Boyer’s Septic Service for providing the port-a-potties. This year’s media sponsors were the Adirondack Pennysaver; Tri-Lakes, Franklin and St. Lawrence County’s Free Traders, Adirondack Daily Enterprise, WSLP 93.3 FM and North Country Public Radio, plus all the community calendars throughout northern New York state and Vermont. Thanks to Romano’s Saranac Lanes, Ray Brook Sunoco, R&L Towing, O’Neil Contracting, Coakley High Peaks Ace Hardware, Casier Furniture, Tri-Lakes Home Medical Equipment Inc., K&E Enterprises, Hyde Fuel and HomEnergy for supporting us by advertising in our program book. Thanks to Happy Camping RV Sales for sponsoring radio advertising, and the town of Franklin for allowing our organization to use the Kate Mountain town park once again this year for our event.

Thank you everyone in the community who came out to enjoy the day and support our organization’s community service and outreach programs despite the weather.

I personally would like to thank all the members of the Kate Mountain Community Recreation Association Inc., and their families because they are the people who volunteered for not only the day but the past few months.

If I have missed anyone, please know that we appreciate everything that you did to support us with this year’s event.

We hope to see you all at future events.
