Letters to the Editor: RIverfest Thank You

June 08, 2016


To the Editor,

We all had another fantastic day on Saturday. This may very well have been the best turn out ever. Thanks for coming to our party! We're very grateful for the support of the Greater Cornwall Community.

There are many individuals and organizations to thank. First, thanks to Mayor Brendan Coyne and the Village Board for allowing there to be a RiverFest. Village Clerk Jeanne Mahoney and her staff, Dave Halvorsen and the DPW and Chief Dixon and the Village PD all stepped up, as usual, and we can’t thank them enough. Superintendent Neal Miller and the Cornwall Central School District, Scoutmaster Ron Jurain and the Scouts and Leaders of Boy Scout Troop 118, COVAC, Storm King Engine Company and the crew from SKAT all played important roles. Without the support and participation of all these organizations and individuals, RiverFest wouldn’t be possible. We would also like to thank all of our contributors and sponsors for providing the financial support necessary to pay for RiverFest. A complete list can be found on our website:, and it's not too late to make a donation for RiverFest 2016.

RiverFest is a team effort. Committee members Kate Benson, Teresa Braine, Kathy Ferraro, Gloria Gerard, Brian Hunt, Elizabeth Moore, Joann Munkelt, Tom O'Shea, Howard Protter, Bob Petrilli, Jeff Schaack, Karen Schaack, Rowland Thomas, Bill Webber and Lis Hellwege worked tirelessly to make RiverFest 19 our best ever. This small group of people that gives so generously of their time and talent deserves all the credit. The RiverFest Committee and the Cornwall Community are what make days like this past Saturday so remarkable.

We also had some volunteers step up to help us during the festival. Thank you to Elena Dionisio of Navy Federal Credit Union and Diane Bartoszak of the Motorcyclepedia. We hope you had as much fun as we did! Thanks also to Storm King Golf Club for the loan of a golf cart to help transport our vendors.

Please mark your calendars for the first Saturday in June, and join us next year for RiverFest 2017.
