It is during the summer that many Board members take the time to attend other festivals, to see how they do things and get ideas to bring back to our own. Old Songs, Lowell, Falcon Ridge, Champlain Valley - these and many others entertain us even as they suggest new approaches to what we do. They also remind us of the larger folk tradition of which NEFFA is a part. While we are enjoying the music and the dancing, we are also, by our participation, helping to keep traditions and cultures alive.
I hope many of you have had the opportunity to enjoy other festivals thi s summer. We would love to hear about what you have seen and been impressed wit h. We welcome letters to the editor which share your experiences.
