Mother Earth Festival Thanks


Thanks to everyone who helped make the inaugural Rhythm of the Island songwriting contest and the Mother’s Day / Mother Earth Festival at Santini Plaza last Saturday. The depth of the talent playing their original songs was inspiring, and the guest speakers informative and entertaining. Special thanks to Al and Kathy Durrett, Bonnie Roberts and Janeen Paulauskis from Fish Tale Marina and Santini Plaza for allowing us to piggyback onto their monthly event and providing, well, pretty much everything we needed to pull this off, to the American Community Music Association and Mike McMillian for providing sound and guidance, and the solid volunteering people of the island for making it all possible. It was a great celebration of music and the nature of this magic little island we call home.
