CANTON -- TAUNY’s 2010 Salute to North Country Legends at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 17 at the Best Western University Inn honors three local “legends” who are masters of North Country traditions.
Each year Traditional Arts in Upstate New York Recipients of the North Country Heritage Award are individuals, families, or community groups who have mastered traditional arts or customs identified with our region and remain committed to passing them on to future generations.
This year’s honorees are Chazy Central Rural School’s Class Day, St. Lawrence River fishing guide Clay Ferguson of Clayton, and the Haskell Yancey Family, maple sugar producers from Croghan.
TAUNY also presents its Evergreen Award to woodcarver Ron Riley of Massena.
The Salute includes audiovisual presentations about each award recipient and musical entertainment will be provided by fiddlers Gretchen Koehler and Don Woodcock.
It is free and everyone is welcome. More info: www.TAUNY.org
