Letters to the Editor: Thank you for 2017 Free the Music Fest

To the Journal editor:

Before summer is over, I would like to remember a favorite event at Lakenenland Sculpture Park. The Free the Music Fest was back this year in style with a big thanks to those responsible for making it happen. Of course without the Lakenens, the festival wouldn’t even happen. Thanks Tom and Lisa for Lakenenland! Cody pours his heart and soul into putting it all together. Thanks Cody! Many Lakenens and friends pitch in to make the weekend come together. Thanks to all! Without the many sponsors, the music fest could not happen. Among the 2017 Free the Music Fest sponsors are: Altamont Productions; North Country Tree Care; Hiawatha Music Co-op; Midway Rentals; North Country Disposal and Septic; Drydock Bar and Grill; Northern Lights Glass; Whites Party Store; The Radio Results Network; The Screened Image; Marquette Area Blues Society; UP Regional Labor Federation; Anttila’s Towing; Michigan Made; Checker Bus; Sombrero Sound Company; Denny’s Drywall; Ironworkers Union Local 8; and Baccee Lakenen. A sincere, heartfelt thanks to all the sponsors who made Free the Music Fest 2017 possible!!! Then there’s the music and all responsible for making it. You know who you are. Thanks for bringing music to our ears! And all the folks who came to listen and have fun. Wouldn’t be the same without you. Thanks for taking the time to come and enjoy! Here’s to next year.
