Dear Editor,

To the Almont Community, the Almont Community Park Board members are extending their thanks and gratitude for being able to host seven out of eight scheduled bands for Music in The Park 2023 Series. Sadly, due to weather complications, one of the bands was cancelled and could not reschedule. The severe weather this year gave much concern for cancellations, as well as the tent purchased for rainy weather, but all seven events were held. Food trucks were introduced and will be looked at for next year. This year our “band committee” booked a few new bands in anticipation of more attendance and input from the community, along with a sponsorship rating. There was 100% sponsorship for all the bands due to the generosity of Almont residents and businesses.

We send out sincere THANK YOU to the following:

GOLD SPONSORS: $900 and Up:
• Gear Master
• Michelle Belesky-State Farm
• French Drain Man

SILVER SPONSORS: $500 to $800
• American Tree
• Blakes’s Backyard

BRONZE SPONSORS: $300 to $400
• Edward Jones-Andy Roosa Fin. Advisor

Especially thank you to the community residents who participated; Lions Club for concession stand and their hall for one event; Village Office personnel for fending phone calls & emails; Village DPW personnel who always keep the park grounds pristine; Tri-City Times for articles and notices; also the Park Band Committee for a great job.

This yearly event takes months of preparation, prayers for good weather, and lots of work to run smoothly. If you would like to recommend bands, ideas, etc. for future events, please send email to Roberta Kudsin, Park Secretary rkudsin@ and she will forward your information to the right members. Again, Thank You all!!
