Thanks to all who helped Maudslay Arts Center

To the editor:

As the 21st consecutive season of music and dance comes to a close at Maudslay Arts Center in Maudslay State Park in Newburyport, it is time to recognize and thank the many volunteers, sponsors, and news media that make this amazing nonprofit outdoor venue a reality each summer.

First we salute the local banks that have supported the center and the arts for many years and allow us to continue to offer excellent musical programs for reasonable cost. The Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank sponsored the Saturday night series, and grants from The Institution for Savings and The Provident Bank helped sponsor the Sunday afternoon family series. This year attendance was up once again thanks to the fine entertainment offered at MAC and the continued publicity by so many media outlets — all the newspapers, magazines, radio stations, cable TV and online services that helped get our message out to the community to insure increasing attendance.

I would like to personally thank Carol Feingold, publicist; Robert Schledwitz, our valiant gardener; and MAC Board of Directors: Cynthia Costello, vice president; Nicholas J. Costello, president; Marie Messner, treasurer, and Steve DeGuglielmo, accountant. A special thanks to this year’s volunteers who work tirelessly to make this series happen: Marjorie Anderson; the Rev. Michael and Edna Shirley; Tony Consalvo; Rena Roseman; Sue and Julie Tiernan; Jean Lambert, and Jeanne Smith.

We thank our patrons; the Massachusetts Department of Conservation & Recreation, particularly Ron Kovacs and staff at Maudslay State Park for their continued support of this most important regional resource, and the Friends of the Maudslay State Park.

On behalf of all of us at Maudslay Arts Center, our deepest thanks and best wishes to all. We hope to see all of you again next summer for our 22nd season; and in the meantime check our website for future events http://maudslayartscenter.org

Nicholas C. Costello

Executive director, Maudslay Arts Center
