Hats Off to all

Dear Editor,

I would like to thank all of our volunteers, businesses, and people that support the Showboat Music Festival. Your dedication and hard work is what keeps the Festival going from year to year. I wish I could mention all of your names, but the list would be far too long. Just know that my hat goes off to all of you, and it was a pleasure to get to know you. I now walk away with many new friends.

Many thanks to our sponsors Main Beverage Company, Garrow and Associates, Frank’s Supermarket, Giesken’s Floor Covering and Cabinetry, Hoerner Accounting, Animal Healthcare, Sloan’s, Centurylink, LaClair Sales, Mel Ervin Ford, 360 Technologies, Subway, Broad Street Pharmacy, Twin Brooks Golf Course, Hungry Howies, Jeannine Hopfensperger, Harris Insurance, Designs By Bean, Waddell and Reed, Chesaning Family Dental, Full Moon Fitness and Tanning, Premier Comfort Foam, Friends of Ken Horn, Sovis Insurance, Paul Danek DDS., our local police Department and MMR.

Also I would like to thank the committees that I have worked with for the past 4 years. There is so much more involvement then just the main stage entertainment, like sponsorships, contracts, stadium sales, east gate hospitality, website, Facebook, fundraisers, insurances and liabilities, Riversbend Hospitality Tent, Queen’s and parades, road race and the list goes on, along with continually exploring new ideas that are brought to the table at every meeting to keep Showboat moving forward.

With a successful year behind us I would like to report that we have been able to pay money towards our debt and set aside startup money for the 2012 season.

2011 Showboat Chairperson
