Dee Carroll says
The rainy-day option, the former-sanctuary performance space has wonderful acoustics! The Westport Heritage House is seeking funds to replace its historic slate roof. Contact Nancy Decker or send a tax deductible check to PRIDE/Westport Heritage House Roof Replacement, PO Box 394, Westport, NY 12993, if you’d like to contribute a some slates for the roof! (PRIDE of Ticonderoga is the fiscal sponsor for the Westport Heritage House tax deductible fund raiser.) Remember, this is an indirect investment in future concerts.
