Nothing like a firehouse BBQ in the summer !!! Summitville FD had a great fundraiser and BBQ this weekend at Catskill Adventure Resort in Wurtsboro.
There was plenty of food and all the people were so very nice to us. I had a great time talking to all the people there and had the opportunity to talk with one of my old co-workers which made the day extra special. Carl Richards and his band provided the entertainment with a mix of down home country, some rock, and some oldies.

Well it's that time of year again and the Richards Family Picnic at Airport Park really took off despite some really gusty winds. There was so much food and plenty to drink. It was so nice to see and hear our Access 23 TV family entertaining everyone.
Of course, The Carl Richards Band was the main attraction. They had the crowd rockin as usual and all the kids and grandchildren had a great time playing on swings. Tammy brought some "extra special" Apple Jack which I hear made it's way into some Gummy Bears.
There was also a "touch" football game that ended up being a lot more than just touch. One of the players ended up with a cracked rib and I don't mean the kind you find on the grill.
Photos can be found in the menu under "Events and Places" then look for the year 2013. The photos in the "Sack" folder are mostly from inside the pavilion and the "WhollyMos" folder are mostly from the playground and game areas and taken by Mariann.

Well I have to say that Thursday night was one of my most memorable photo shoots. I had the opportunity to photograph the legendary Pete Seeger with RJ Storm and the Old School Band on the set of Keepin Country Strong. It's not often that you get an opportunity to see a living legend perform live in concert. Pete is 93 years old if my information is correct but he sure sings like he was 23. Pete has so many stories that he loves to tell his audiences. He is simply captivating when he speaks. I could just sit and listen to him share these stories for hours. One of the most memorable moments of the evening was when he invited the studio audience to sing along with him as he performed his legendary " Turn, Turn, Turn ". It was such a wonderful moment seeing Pete do what he does best, share his music and the awareness that the lyrics bring to us.
He was accompanied by RJ Storm and the Old School Band playing great bluegrass with banjo,acoustic guitar and stand up bass and vocals. Of course, Pete sang and played his legendary banjo.

Jermaine Paul returned to the Castle on 2.15.13 for another sold out concert. I was thrilled to receive an email from Sue, the event coordinator and an invite to do photos for the event. The evening started with Mike and Ed's Acoustic Adventure, a great duo. They did a great set and had the crowd all warmed up and ready for the main event.
Jermaine has made changes in the band but still has his brother Charles and sister Wendy to help out with the vocals. Jermaine is a lover of children and it really shows by the way he interacts with them on stage. He invites them up to dance and sing with him which is a joy to the children. He did get some adults up on the stage with him as well.
Enjoy the photos and plan to buy Jermaine's upcoming cd which is going to be released shortly
Photos can be found in the "Concerts" section of the menu. Jermaine has his own folder there.
