To the editor:
On behalf of SunStorm Arts Company, I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to so many wonderful people in the North Country and particularly Lake Placid who were so kind and encouraging as we brought our first annual Lake Placid Celebration of the Arts to fruition.
To the wonderful publisher, Catherine Moore, who was so supportive with editorial and advertising space; to the enthusiastic young reporter Margaret Moran who attended the event at the Convention Center and wrote insightful reviews of the music and art; to ORDA's Denny Allen who went the extra mile to make sure it ran flawlessly and to the entire staff at the Convention Center and 1932 rink - what a place to throw a party!
We'd like to also thank the great guys from Roadside Mystic who opened the show. The folks in town who supported the event with sponsorship need to be recognized and we do so here with gratitude: Table 6, Schulte's Motor Lodge, Grill 211; Mike Foote Insurance, Lake Placid Flower and Gift, Guideboat Realty, Lake Placid House of Jerky, Sandra Hildreth and The Adirondack Artists' Guild of Saranac Lake, Brenda Hardin and the Lake Placid artists and so many others who encouraged us and attended.
A special thank you to the great Ghislain Dion who is simply a walking musical theater and to Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown for their stalwart performance at the Rink through Roger Sharp's sound system. All the art exhibitors are coming back for our second annual Celebration of the Arts in 2012 and we aim to become an integral part of the wonderful cultural scene burgeoning in Lake Placid.
Thank you again and we look forward to hearing from you and meeting you in person.
