Agate Jamboree was a huge success

To the editor:

We had a very successful jamboree once again. We’d like to thank all the musicians that were there, the talent was awesome. We had musicians from through out the UP, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin, Minnesota, etc.

Thank you to all who helped in so many ways, from setting up to taking it all down. We really appreciate the help. Thank you Marian and Leo Mattila for helping with the donation buttons, the money goes to pay for the port-a-pots. Thank you Betty for being the best MC there could ever be. You always do a great job and have fun while doing it. Thank you Scott Hayrynen for donating pop, it was really appreciated. Thank you to the TVFD for the use of your large blue tarp.

Thank you to all who came to listen to the music and visit. Always nice to see so many there. Thank you to the 4H club for having the concession stand opened for the weekend.

Thank you Leon for your help, I appreciated it more then you know.

Next year will be our 20th Jamboree so we hope to see you all there on August 2 and 3, 2014. The entire weekend was so much fun for all.

Thank you again to the musicians that were there and for your support and for being such great friends, we couldn’t do it without you. We love you all. God Bless each and everyone of you.

Rick and Pat Hayrynen
