Letters to the Editor

Thanks for Gazebo and for help

Open Letter to the Residents of Kenwood:

I would like to thank everyone involved in the 2nd annual Kenwood Jazz, Blues and BBQ. We once again had a great turnout for the event and good times were had by all. The day started with the formal dedication of the gazebo complete with music and speeches. The dedication of the gazebo represents completion and I think it worked flawlessly as the centerpiece of this Kenwood Plaza community event. A special thanks goes to the Kenwood Plaza Park Gazebo Committee Steve and Colleen Rose, Paul Kruzic, Jay Gamel, Helena Duffy and Amy MacNair and to Melissa Kelley of the Sonoma County Parks Foundation who worked tirelessly to make this the special event it was.

As sometimes happens, someone is left out of the acknowledgements. Many people and businesses contributed so much to this project. A couple of people were omitted during my speech at the dedication; one is Tom Peterian. He was a big part of the framing of the gazebo and deserves to be recognized. Tom lent his master carpentry skills to the project and in so doing, helped in a big way to make this project a success. Another Kenwood resident, Ewing Philbin was missed also. Ewing and his company Ross Recreation were instrumental in providing the beautiful benches now adorning the gazebo.

The completion of the Kenwood Plaza Gazebo is the last component of the original plaza master plan put together in the early 1990s. For some, the gazebo represents the town center. For others it is a place of remembrance and reflection. Not matter what, it will be a part of our community for decades to come. There are no words to aptly describe the gift the Musser-Kirby family have given us in this special centerpiece on the Kenwood Plaza.

Don MacNair
