Musical benefit for Essex Town Park

ESSEX - An evening of music will help repair the dock at Begg's Park in Essex.

A volunteer group of Essex residents and a local business will sponsor a special outdoor concert Sunday, Aug. 29, from 5-8:30 p.m. The event will be held at The Cupola House on Lake Champlain, the co-sponsor of the event, located at 2278 Main St. It will feature an acoustic quartet -guitar, mandolin, bass and flute, called "Wolfgang's Revenge" who are based in Long Island. The Begg's Park Committee is a group of local residents who have taken the initiative to raise funds for the park. They have already purchased new picnic tables, benches, dog stations, and have installed a memorial plaque dedicated to Barbara Jackson.

"There is a lot of other needed work and repairs, especially to the dock, the stairway, handicap ramp to the dock and bulkhead at the park," said Donna Sonnett, owner of the Cupola House. "The committee is hoping to eventually raise the funds to repair this well-loved and well-used facility."

Donations are suggested at $15 for adults and $5 for children.
