LETTER: Town, volunteers made music festival possible

The 15th annual Carrboro Music Festival took place on Sunday, Sept. 30. I’d like to send out my personal thanks to all who contributed to Carrboro’s always-special day – especially the rain gods who allowed us a glorious one-day window without rain.

Thank you to the Carrboro Recreation & Parks Department, with very special thanks to recreation supervisor Rah Trost, who helped coordinate the event while juggling a couple of other upcoming town events. Thanks to recreation administrator Dennis Joines for the running the website. I’d also like to thank the Carrboro Public Works Department and streets superintendent David Poythress, the Carrboro Police Department and Capt. Walter Horton and the Carrboro Fire Department under Chief Travis Crabtree. Without the town commitment, the event would not exist.

Many thanks to the 2012 volunteer committee members: Charlie Berry, Catherine DeVine, Tony Galiani, Michael Gowan, Jackie Helvey, Meg McGurk and Janet Place. Special gratitude expressed to Meg for her invaluable volunteer coordination and to Janet for her fantastic graphic design work. Thank you to all the generous sponsors (including The Carrboro Citizen for their wonderful insert), the venues and all the musicians who donate their time and abilities.

Gerry Williams
Festival coordinator
