Lake Country Players Announce Member Recognitions

From time to time it becomes necessary to formally acknowledge the efforts of those who give of themselves for the betterment of an organization. The Lake Country Players is proud to recognize four of its own for their achievements: Ellen Coleman of Watkins Glen, Connor Evans of Hector, Martha Evans of Burdett and Kathy Gill of Keuka Lake.At its April 25, 2007 regular meeting at the Rural Urban Center in Montour Falls, LCP Treasurer Jane Daum put forth a motion granting Life-Time Membership status to Ellen Coleman, Martha Evans and Kathy Gill. The motion was carried unanimously. LCP President Richard Little stated, “Our reasons for bestowing this accolade are as numerous as the hours and years and events these honorees have participated during their long tenures.” Little added, “It is through their efforts and blood, sweat, and tears that this organization has become a regional leader in theater and performing arts.” Formal recognition and certificate presentation will take place at the LCP annual summer picnic July 28.On May 24, 2007 LCP selected Watkins Glen High School senior Connor Evans to receive the Charlie Stamp Award. The Charlie Stamp Award is presented to a high school senior who plans to attend college to pursue Arts-related studies. President Little said, “Connor’s work and affiliation with LCP and local theatrical productions goes back a long way. Seldom seen on stage, Connor is backstage working as the sound and light man.” Little continued, “His theatrical credits include “The King and I,” “Babes in Arms,” “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown,” and “Beauty & the Beast.” This is far from an exhaustive list of his accomplishments but quickly illustrates his experience and dedication to his craft.” Connor will be presented the $300 award during the Watkins Glen High School graduation ceremony June 23. Connor also received the 2007 LCP Performing Arts Award which was presented in early June.LCP is an organization that has evolved over the past three decades offering a variety of artistic programs. Many of its successes would not have been possible without these individuals. Congratulations and thanks for your devoted service.
