Lynn's Second Annual World Folk Festival

A Letter from Bob Connolly to the Community:

Planning for Lynn’s Second Annual World Folk Festival is now underway.  Our planning committee this year is made up of a variety of local individuals and agencies, proudly collaborating to make this event a tremendous success.  Our first annual event was held last October, under gloomy skies and was attended by approximately 300 people.  This year we have decided to move the event date to Saturday July 3, to coincide with our nation’s birthday and Lynn’s fireworks following our event’s conclusion.  We have already booked local talent, that includes musician and dancers from a variety of cultural backgrounds.  We have asked our performers to showcase songs and dance celebrating, “Freedom’s Impact Around the World”.  Many of the groups feature school age children representing the far reaches of our globe.   The festival will, once again, be held at Lynn Heritage State Park.  We are also hosting world food vendor, artists and cultural presentations.

We realize the financial constraints that face all potential donors are great, especially in this current economic crisis. But we also feel that the strength of our city’s prosperity is based in the diversity of its' residents.  An event such as this serves to strengthen our community, as well as the businesses and individuals who invest in its successful outcome.  All donors, with contributions of $100 or more, will be listed on all printed material associated with the event, including programs, pre-event advertising and post-event press releases.  One of our community partnering agencies has offered their Tax ID #, so that your contribution may also be recorded as a charitable donation (available upon request).

    In order to be counted as a generous sponsor on our program and advertising we are requesting a reply by Wednesday June 23, 2010.  Thank you in advance for your support of this event. If you have any questions please contact Bob Connolly at (781)484-8614 or at
