To the Times of Ti:
The 10th annual Flippancy Fest – John Costello Memorial Coffeehouse – was held at the Hague Beach (thanks to the town of Hague for the beautiful venue) on July 26 and was blessed with good weather, great performers, a wonderful audience and a true feeling of John’s spirit.
John’s brother, Tavish, and his “Maw and Paw,” Karen and Tim, would like to sincerely thank Kate Norcross and Sydney Heinle for helping organize this year’s event and wish them good fortune in life as they receive the John Costello Memorial Scholarship for 2013. We also give our thanks to Silver Bay YMCA for sponsoring the Scholarship Fund, for supplying the delicious food and beverages and the sound system and Carolyn Close for her valuable assistance. Thank you to all who had a hand in the preparations.
What makes Flippancy Fest each year is the awesome talent that fills our senses with feelings. The drumming, the poetry, the guitars, cello, piano, dulcimer and the songs make us all more alive. A touch of humor and splash of sentiment topped off the evening. Special thanks to all the performers. We greatly appreciate all the donations to The John Costello Memorial Scholarship Fund, a life enrichment award given yearly. Donations can be directed to Silver Bay YMCA of the Adirondacks, Silver Bay 12874.
