TO THE EDITOR: The 2013 Peru St. Augustine’s Applefest was a great success again this year
As the entertainment coordinator, I would personally like to thank the Bootleg Band, Plattsburgh Pipe and Drums Band, Plattsburgh Gospel Choir and Merriloons the Clown for the wonderful job they did.
The Bootleg Band also went beyond the music for some fun in the dunking booth. The whole band raised enough money from the crowd to all end up being dunked, including myself.
What a great time had by all. These guys were fantastic. What great sports they were.
Thank you Carl Kokes for playing our national anthem on violin for us on Sunday. It was amazing.
You all did a wonderful job, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. To a great group of musicians, you were greatly appreciated. Merriloons, you did a good job keeping the children happy as always.
Looking forward to seeing all of you next year.
If you would like to see photos of this year’s doings, please go to Peru Gazette or St. Augustine’s Applefest 2013 or Peru Parish slide shows.
Consider coming next year to enjoy the fun.
Applefest 2013 entertainment coordinator
TO THE EDITOR: Three cheers to the members of Congress. Hip,hip, horray! Hip, hip horray! Hip, hip horray!
The recent federal shutdown almost wants you to stop voting, if not forever, then at least to stop voting for the incumbents on a regular, stupid basis.
Why were congressional staff members necessary employees at this time of shutdown? They should have been furloughed.
TO THE EDITOR: The Guardians of the Ribbon would like to thank Entertainment Too owners Jon, Ana and Jackson Garrant for hosting a craft show/flea market to benefit local people fighting cancer in our area.
It was a huge success, due their hard work putting this event together. This was a first-time event for them and hopefully will become a yearly one.
Also thanks to all the vendors for coming and making this event a great success. Without all of you, this would have never happened.
Also, a big thank you to the patrons who showed up that day to support everyone there. It was a lot of work but fun also.
Through everyone’s efforts, this event was very successful. All the money raised stays local to help local people fighting cancer in our area.
Thank you again for your support.
