continued The concert is expected to last six hours.
Moriahstock is the brainchild of John Deflice.
“John thought it would be a great showcase for local artist to display their talents on stage for the benefit of their community,” Garrison said. “It’ll be a casual, fun afternoon gathering for the entire family. Attendees are encouraged to visit local eateries and/or bring a picnic lunch to enjoy along with the music.”
The Moriah Community and Economic Development (EDGe) group was formed at Garrison’s urging after he was elected to the town board three years ago.
“This is just one of many projects that have come from the formation of the Moriah Community and Economic Development group —Moriah Edge,” Garrison said. “Our group is trying to take the assets that town has and we are trying to come up with ideas to capitalize on what we already have and are not utilizing.”
pH7 is a group of concerned citizens who are working for the betterment of Port Henry. It was formed after an effort to dissolve the village failed. The people who formed the committee felt that since the citizenry had voted to keep the village, they should work toward preserving and improving the village.
The Moriah Chamber of Commerce is a long-standing group of local merchants working to improve the town and village. It’s active throughout the year, under the leadership of President Jack Woods, and sponsors events such as the summer concert series in the park, Champ Day and the annual Labor Day celebration.
