Thank you so much for reading my blog of poems etc…
I just wanted you to know, that tonight I am receiving an honor for one of them.
The Old Forge, NY Public Library holds an annual Literary and Visual Art Contest. Old Forge is a small but quite progressive All Year resort town in The Adirondacks. While the native population is small, the town is quite full of tourists, renters, snowmobilers, skiers,boaters, fall leaf peepers, YOU NAME IT throughout the year. In fact the only time of year the town isn’t “hopping” is from April through mid May (known as Mud Season) because the snow is gone, and its too early to open up summer camp houses. They have quite an active arts and literary scene there between the Arts Center which is called “View” and the Old Forge Library, both of which host a number of programs and events, all year long. The poetry end of the Poetry and Art contest annually receives near 150 entrants from Oneida, Herkimer,and other surrounding counties both near, and in The Adirondacks, and The Mohawk Valley. This year the theme of the contest was “times past”. My poem “Beams of Memory” which can be found on this blog (if you have not read it), won “Honorable Mention” which is “2nd place”. So tonight I will be attending the awards reception, and receiving the honor of being able to read my poem to all in attendance. If you have not read it, I hope you scroll down and do so, as well as my other blog entries here. Thank you so much for subscribing to me!! You all helped make this happen!!! Hugs!!!
