Thanks for the help


To the Editor:

The Martha’s Vineyard Film Society would like to extend a hearty thank you to all of the wonderful people who made this year’s Filmusic Festival possible. Bringing the Berklee Silent Film Orchestra (BSFO) to the Island would not have been possible without sponsors Sam Feldman and Marilyn Meyerhoff and Cape Cod 5 Bank. Special thanks go out to Mr. Brian Skidmore for arranging the details of getting the BSFO students over so smoothly, and arranging for island hosts Judy Fisher, el Edwards, Kathy Hedlund, Bob Dutton, Tania Zouilin, Larkin and Jackie Stallings, and Nancy Valentino, who generously opened their homes to the talented musicians, demonstrating what Martha’s Vineyard hospitality is all about.

Most of all we wish to thank all of the community and our Film Society members for the continued support and enthusiasm, and in joining us for our celebration of music and movies, and welcoming summer!
