SATURDAY 08-06-2016......The Suffield League Music Festival closed out another year, their 15th annual gathering, with a standing-room-only crowd late Saturday evening. Blessed by great summer weather, after early week predictions of showers on the weekend, the band Vicious Cycle performed their Lynyrd Skynyrd act to about 400 enthusiastic patrons. Festival chairman Tom Calcei said that the magnificent weather, coupled with some great acts and a whole lot of work by a number of dedicated Suffield League volunteers made the weekend a huge success. He also said that they were blessed to have a larger than normal group of corporate sponsors. Proceeds from the event help to fund community-based endeavors, such as the annual Memorial Day Parade, Christmas With Santa, the Children's Easter Egg Hunt and by providing flags for the community on the appropriate holidays.
