Nine different community groups receive funds

From Shawn Hogan,

To Whom it May Concern:  As you are aware I made the decision to discontinue the Maple City Sound Drum Corps Show, there were a number of reasons, but first and foremost lack of volunteers, and also shrinking sponsorship base, all the money left in the Maple City Sound Account was donated to local charities and organizations.

St. James Hospital Foundation — $2000

Hornell City School District (Music Education Programs) – $1500

Hornell YMCA — $1,000

Hornell Public Library — $ 761.35

White Sabers Drum Corps   — $500

Hornell Community Theater Group — $1000

Catholic Charities (Turning Point)  __ $300

Hornell Salvation Army —-   $300

United Way of the Southern Tier — $300

Hornell Wind Ensemble —- $300

I appreciate the Chamber of Commerce allowing Maple City Sound to continue to operate under their umbrella, but everything has a life span, this event had run its course, as much as I will miss the event, it was time.

Kindest regards

Shawn D. Hogan

Last Chairman of Maple City Sound Committee
