We had headed up to Roaring Brook Ranch to meet up with our friends Val ...
The size of the crowd gives you a hint about how long this winter has been. Lots of folks were happy to get out and hear some foot stompin' music and sample lots of spicy chili. It was a perfect antidote to some serious North Country cabin fever.
I was happy to run into some old friends and former co-workers...
...and some locally famous folk.
Matt Funicello is a Green Party candidate for Congress. He was there with Amber Lannutti, helping the fundraiser by giving out lovely bread from Matt's Rock Hill Bakehouse. Matt is a good egg and a generous businessman. If there is a good local cause, Matt is there with his wonderful bread. I wish him well in his campaign for Congress. You can follow Matt Funicello's campaign on his Facebook page: Matt for Congress - NY District 21.
You can also find Matt's wonderful Rock Hill bread at many local grocery stores, farmers' markets, and at the Rock Hill Café in Glens Falls.
