Clara Davis: Welcome, Ladies and Gentlemen, to the Lewisburg Wine and Music Festival. I'm Clara Davis, the newly-elected President of the Appalachia Arts Foundation. Before we begin, I'd like to take a moment to thank you all for your kinds words about our prior President, Mr. Glen Atkinson. Glen was a wonderful man, and his passing was unfortunate, if not entirely unexpected given his declining health over the last year. But as we all know, Lewisburg Presses On, don't we folks? I'd also like to thank everyone for being so flexible, and managing to reschedule so much around that unfortunate storm. The weather's definitely a bit more unpredictable these days, and none of us quite expected the storm to last three whole weeks.
Here we are now, though... all together, and I'm hoping we can enjoy a bit of... of, uhh... Mr. Pickens, I see your hand raised, and I would just like to remind you that this is neither the place nor the time. You have repeatedly raised your concerns to the Foundation, and we have obligingly listened for years now. We'd like to keep a positive outlook on things. Maybe you could too, sir, and spend some time preparing for next month's Garden Festival. I'm sorry, Ladies and Gentlemen. Please do enjoy the day. I'm very proud we were able to find three musicians to perform for us this year, and we've verified no less than 4 wines that are 100 percent safe to drink.
