Thank You Waterford
On behalf of the Waterford Museum and the 10th Annual Concert Under the Stars and Irish Festival Committee, I would like to thank the community of Waterford for their support for our recent event on Saturday, August 13 at the Waterford Harbor.
Inspired by the Waterford Museum’s current exhibit “Making Waterford Our Home: Irish,” the concert and Irish Festival brought the community together to celebrate our shared heritage and appreciation of Irish culture.
Hair of the Dog put on a great show and helped to draw an enthusiastic crowd to the waterfront. But the record turnout would not have been possible with out the support of all of our sponsors, especially Momentive Performance Materials, New York State Marine Highway, the historic railroad barge "Pennsylvania Railroad 399," Brown’s Brewing Company and the Town and Village of Waterford. The extra support provided by the Town Police and Rescue Squad helped to make the event a safe and enjoyable environment for all.
The 10th Annual Concert Under the Stars and Irish Festival was a great success and helped to raise some much needed funds for the Museum. We are excited to begin planning for the 2012 event and with the continued support of the community we know it will be another success!
