To the Editor:

The family of Jesse D. McCarthy would like to thank everyone who helped make the first Pride & Joy Bike Run/Pig Roast such a huge success. Commercial Press, for the beautiful posters Adirondack Deck & Dock Co. for the Memorial Walk Bridge raffled off, all the musicians for the entertainment, Great Northern Printing for making the great T-shirts, Kevin Caskinett, Clifford Flanagan and their helpers for building an awesome stage for the music, an extra special thanks to all the helping hands that were recruited with all the details of setting up the food and the bike run registration at the Birches.

Tim Murdock, excellent job cooking the pig. All the bikers who rode in support for this event.

All profits went to the Jesse D. McCarthy Music Scholarship Fund, started last year in memory of Jesse McCarthy, who died in a car accident Sept. 17, 2009.

The awards were given out at the end of the Pride & Joy Bike Run. The recipients of 2010 were Nick Rycroft of Colton School who chose a gift certificate from Dicks Country Store and Claire Woodcock of Canton School who preferred voice lessons at Crane School of Music.

Anyone interested in more info on the Music Scholarship, or interested in helping with next year’s fund raisers contact Vicki Stark at 262-2698 or Brenda Flanagan at 714-2422. We hope to make this Music Scholarship work to help aspiring music students in St. Lawrence County to continue their music interests.
