A New Online Calendar For Stephentown Events

imac-ipad-computer-tablet-39578.jpeg

After a successful first year and lots of suggestions for improvements to be made in the future, it’s clear the full potential of Celebrate Stephentown has yet to be realized. 

To this end, plans are moving ahead to continue developing this valuable platform for promoting our town, its organizations and its businesses.

The first step is to tentatively schedule next year’s festival for the same weekend, August 17-19, 2018. Meetings for the planning of those events will begin in January and all input is welcome.

Next, beginning in November, we will start using Celebrate Stephentown’s established online presence, both its website and its social media accounts, to promote events happening all around town throughout the year.

We’ve earned people’s attention and it makes sense to continue putting this visibility to productive use.

If your organization or business is interested in having its events listed in this new online calendar, please send all the relevant details, as well as any related promotional photos, to scott@celebratestephentown.com as you would to Eastwick Press and other similar outlets.

 

Thank You, Stephentown!

What an amazing weekend we had!

So many people came up to us and shared their favorite stories and memories, not only from this past weekend, but also growing up in Stephentown and returning for these events, which made them feel an incredible sense of pride in this beautiful little town.

Being part of the dedication ceremony and opening night reception with all those people is something we will never forget!

Of course, lots of people from other towns came out to join us and we very much appreciated hearing their stories as well.

We have so many people to thank for helping to make this such a successful inaugural venture, particularly the many presenters and participants who helped organize their own events and shared what they do best with their community.

In addition to our sponsors, we are also incredibly grateful for the contributions and support of Larry Eckhardt, Gerry Robinson, Bill Jennings, Stephanie Wagar, Aldie Goodermote, Tracy Grant, Tammy Madden, Tom Quimby, Anita Henry, Kim McMann, Doug La Roque, Alex Brooks, Patti Wright, Nettie Hammond, and our Moms, who pitched in when we needed them most.

Finally, thanks to everyone in the media who helped us spread the word, including Sharon Smullen, Joseph Phelan and WNYT NewsChannel 13.

Thanks again for letting us show the world how much we appreciate the only Stephentown on Earth!
