Saranac Lake NY Benefit Concert

RKM_NY_SaranacLake_2014

It was an enormous honor to meet and thank the Saranac Lake Fire Fighters, the Rescue Squad, the Family of Preston Burl, and so many of the Saranac Lake community with our benefit concert on May 24, 2014!

 

There are so very many good-hearted people to thank for inspiring, initiating, working on, contributing to, and attending this event, my head spins just at the thought of trying to mention everyone.

 

It was a LOVE FESTIVAL of song and expression… and I’m talking about EVERYONE in attendance as well as all of YOU who sent me off to New York with your prayers or well-wishes or financial donations to the Saranac Lake Volunteer Fire Department. We raised a nice amount of money for these hero volunteers as we set out to honor the Hero Superman who rescued me, Chief Preston Burl!

 

The following print articles will hopefully show the appropriate appreciates… but it will never even come close.

May I mention a special thank you to Fire Chief Brendan Keough for so many heart-touching, thrilling surprises for Barbara Burl and family, and Vala and myself – like the fire truck ride and escort to the concert; the fire department and concert goers gathered upon our arrival; and for the gifts for me to take to my Famous Flying Mom!

I have never experienced more love!!   Thank You!!

 

Yours truly,

Ruth
