Sun & Fun: Sherburne Arts Festival a Hit!

            [SHERBURNE, NY] – The weather was perfect, the art was inspiring, the food was delicious, the music was toe-tapping, the special exhibits were exciting, and the people were many … the 6th Annual Sherburne Arts Festival on Saturday had something for everyone and did not disappoint.
            The arts festival committee extends sincere thanks to all who joined us in Gaines Park for a wonderful day of viewing art, buying art, and making art. Special thanks to the following volunteers: Mike Drahos (who portrayed T.H. Matteson in such fine fashion), Julian Button, Tom Morris, Mike Mettler, Janet Horton, Riley Webster, Jeff Webster, Ben Khoury, Zach Sampson, Brandi Harmon, Sarah Cole, Jessica Czachowski, and Bill and Jackie Craine. We also extend thanks to the wonderful SECS art teachers, Colleen Law-Tefft and the library staff, everyone who donated a basket for our ticket auction and a pie for Pie-Mania, the folks from the village who keep the park beautiful, and of course the artists and crafters who have made this one of the most exciting art shows in Chenango County.
