Three Seasons of Catching Up
Mt. Irenaeus to spend a couple days felling trees with Brother Joe in a forest improvement effort.
The festival was standard fare, wonderful times with good friends and lots of great music, some of which I even played. Red Dog Run had a blast playing their set, Julie and Andrea are siblings loving the festival they get to put on at Julie's place every summer. Lori and Pat Burke stay dry during a shower, looks like they must be talking about Dan's motor home. Lori, Dan and another friend, Fred Parker, all made it to Ithaca/Trumansburg for GrassRoots a couple weeks later. Steve, Julie (hosts) pose with Jenn who runs the program that keeps tons of recyclable products from going to the landfill.
Sadly, it was the last time I saw good friend and coworker in HQ, Tracy Burt. She was able to make it to the festival but succumbed to a brain tumor a little over a month later. She and Tammy Rayborne have been holding HQ together for about ten years, I sit around and play banjo to keep everyone calm. Tracy is on the left. We miss her.
