Jerry Moore's Children of God

We’d like to express our appreciation to the many individuals and organizations that so graciously gave their time, enthusiasm and resources, helping to make the August 15 concert and Zero-Carbon fundraiser a resounding success. Heartfelt thanks go to the in-kind sponsors—Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Sun Mountain Solar (Larry Brown, on-site solar tech!), Naomi Graphics and Hurley Ridge Market; and the Eco-Raffle sponsors—Cameron Design, H. Houst & Son, Oriole9 Restaurant, Overlook Mountain Bikes, Paul Alexander Construction Co., Pondicherry Yoga Arts, River Rock Health Spa, Rondout Savings Bank, Sunflower Natural Foods Market, Susun Weed, SweetHeart Gallery, Village Green Bed & Breakfast, Woodstock Music Shop and Woodstock Chimes®. A great debt of gratitude is owed to Steve Walter and to the musicians—the Blues Magoos, Hubert Sumlin and band, Ellen McIlwaine, Marc Black and band, Jerry Moore and the Children of God, and the Robbie Turner Band. Thanks go also to the Bearsville Theater—Peter Cantine, Lisa Hantes, Robert Frazza, and other members of the staff. Rick Schneider of WKZE was a knowledgeable and adroit emcee; we thank him and the whole of WKZE for their support. Chuck Ballantine and Chris Andersen, we thank you for your audio assistance.

Further, we’re grateful to Barry Samuels and Ellen Shapiro of The Golden Notebook and Jody Bryan of H. Houst & Son for lending us sidewalk space to sell the Eco Raffle tickets . . . and to the Eco Raffle ticket buyers for supporting Woodstock’s Zero-Carbon Initiative with their purchases. Thanks go also to Steve Burnham for delivering the solar trailer and to Mannajo Greene of Clearwater for her help in securing the trailer. We very much appreciate assistance received from the Woodstock Chamber of Commerce & Arts in publicizing the Roots events. We thank the Woodstock Environmental Commission and Jeff Moran for helping us establish the best use of the Eco Raffle funds. Last but certainly not least, we thank Representative Maurice Hinchey, Senator John Bonacic and Assemblymember Kevin Cahill for their letters of support.
