in the shows 35-year history. Record turnout, record sponsorship,
and non-stop fun in the Adirondacks sent everyone home happy. Added
in was the excitement of mixing with a variety of celebrities including
actresses like Glenn Close and Alfrie Woodard, rock stars like Bruce
Springsteen and Patti Scialfa, and TV news hosts like Paula Zahn
and Lou Dobbs.
