To the Editor:
We would like to thank everyone who helped to make Dancing on the Bridge 2010 a great success! It takes many people to put on this festival, including the planning committee, volunteers, vendors, donors, car show exhibitors, Malvern staff members, musicians, magicians and, of course, all the residents who attended the event.
The night before Dancing on the Bridge, Joanne and Bob Cinson had a terrific tailgate party for all donors. It kicked off the event very well, and on Saturday, the car show began early and attracted more exhibitors than ever. Spikeman, the area’s renowned car show deejay, spun tunes and the winners in the various classes were delighted with their wins. The free children’s area was hopping from noon until 6 pm, and featured face painting, games, prizes, candy and a lot of fun. As they have every year, the vendors brought excellent food which was enjoyed by the crowd. Sports fans watched the Ohio State game in the Beer Garden and the Basket Raffle brought in a record amount! Tim Angeloni, magician, performed, and various dancers and singers added to the event. The main stage band, Rudy and the Professionals, stayed through the hour-long downpour, and after the rain provided music for dancing in the street.
We raised enough money to resurface the basketball court and plant eight new trees in the park. I am very pleased with the strong support given to these projects, and proud that residents of the Malvern area are so generous and have such great community spirit.
