Clarification regarding kudos


by admin on September 16, 2009

The Editor,

Thank you for both the kudos and coverage of all Wakefest events big and small (Sept 2 page 4 and 12). The bouquet tossed our way in your editorial is much appreciated and we share it with all our volunteers and sponsors.
However, we would like to inform your readers that the Great Granny Concert on the Covered Bridge on Sunday, August 30th was a completely separate event from Wakefest. We simply listed them in our program in order to encourage folks in town, who may have been here for Wakefest or just passing through, to attend the concert and support the Grannies. We can take no credit for the great success of the “great” grannies … we’re just grateful that they call Wakefield their home and share their wealth of knowledge and energy with all.
Part of Wakefest’ mission statement is: “a festival of all that inspires all … set in inspiring Wakefield”. Congratulations, kudos, bouquets and all to the Grannies and all their volunteers for their work; they are a big part of what makes Wakefield inspiring.
