Once again, Waterama is a community success
It is always fun to witness months of hard work and dedication come together for one great weekend at the end of July.
Waterama 2014 was again a huge success attracting thousands to Glenwood and the Lake Minnewaska area to enjoy a variety of activities in the community and on the lake.
There were people everywhere, with many local businesses doing well with the added traffic. Of course, Waterama doesn’t just happen, and once again, we must point out that the hard work begins with the Waterama Brass–Admiral Jodi McGinty, Vice-Commodore Becky Evertz and Commodore Ted Hill. While Jodi’s stint on the local brass came to an end Sunday night, she should be congratulated and thanked for a job well done. She, of course, is the first to admit that she couldn’t do it all by herself and in her farewell speech Sunday, thanked the entire community, the board and all the volunteers for their tireless work to make Waterama happen each year.
So, thank you to all the volunteers, the Waterama Board, all the sponsors and participants in the many events, and to all those who make Glenwood and Lake Minnewaska their destination during this weekend celebration.

Congratulations to Terri Richards, a past Waterama Admiral and a current Waterama Board member for being honored for her community volunteerism at Sunday night’s coronation ceremony.
Terry received the Aquatennial Commodore’s pin for her work in the community and received a rousing applause as she stepped on stage for the award. Again, it was well-deserved by someone who can be seen all over the community volunteering her time and skills for just about every community cause.

With all the Waterama events, not everything could be included in this week’s edition of the Pope County Tribune. If there was an event that you don’t see covered this week, it will likely be covered in next week’s Tribune.
