KUDOS and THANK YOU!
by Nancy J. King, Volunteer Coordinator
A BIG thank you to all of the Supervisors who worked tirelessly at the 19th Annual Kalamazoo Blues Festival. It was a warm and sometimes long 3 days, but the music and company were great. The KVBA could not put on a Festival without your tremendous help:
Katie Bevins, Cheryl Beltz, Earl Carl, Tom Deyo, Michelle Dresen, Tom Duffield, Ben Flaten, Briana Grace, Mel Grace, Tim Hazard, Sheila Hicks, David Hunt, Donna Keith, David Kinsey, Leeann Kinsey, Brook Lamm, Sue Markus, Erick Martin, Alden Miller, Jeff Mitchell, Mike Muszynski, Howard Olsen, Pat Olsen, Jodi Omness, Mark Patrick, David Poole, Jim Sadler, Paul Schneidenback, Matt Smith, Sue Srackangast, Tina Truax, Dennis Tuttle, Sue Weaver, Kurt Weber, and Ann Wittenkeller.
A special thanks goes to Dennis Tuttle for the great album of pictures showing the artists signing the guitar raffled by KVBA this year.
To all of the Volunteers who spent 3 or more hours of their time helping in the various areas at the festival: we applaud you and thank you! Some of you stayed longer at your stations than scheduled to help out, and many of you volunteered each day. The KVBA appreciates and recognizes all that you do.
Also, a big thanks to all of the Board Members who were not only on site all 3 days of the Festival, but who were working throughout the year to make the festival possible.
It was a great Festival again this year, thanks to all of you. THANK YOU!
