Riverfest success

The 2008 East Brady Area Riverfest Committee thanks everyone that helped make this year's Riverfest a success. We couldn't have done it without the help from the entire area. Sunday of the event we got rained out, but the rest of the weekend was great.

Thanks to:

The volunteers who sometimes they get overlooked. They include the people who helped us set things up and tear down, worked in the information booth, and those who did anything else for us. The East Brady Fire Co. for taking care of the parade, the Sugarcreek Fire Co. for helping with fireworks, and East Brady Ambulance for letting us use their building to announce the parade. The East Brady Council for letting us use the Community Center during the year for pageants and fundraisers, for use of the field for Riverfest and for working with us. It means a lot having their support. The entertainers, vendors, sponsors, contest participants, and donors to the auction and other donors. Participants in the car cruise. Clarion County A.B.A.T.E. for wanting to tie their Dice Run in with Riverfest, it is too bad it rained on their event. Jim Kelly and all that came to help him with the dedication of his new sign. We especially thank the East Brady residents for putting up with the inconvenience for the weekend.

If I missed anyone I'm sorry, there are so many people, and we appreciated everything. We will soon reorganize and start to plan for 2009. If anyone has suggestions or would like to help, contact any Riverfest Committee member.

Sally Snow, co-chairwoman.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
