Sparta Dragon Boat Festival--Thank You

Posted Sun, May 15th, 2016 By Gwen Donovan

We would like to thank everyone for supporting our Second Annual Dragon Boat Festival on May 15. Congratulations to the community winning teams: Gold/first place winners were Sparta Station Athletics A, Silver/second place went to RedShed CrossFit, Bronze/third place winners were RDA Fitness. Also congratulations to the winning Club team NJ Dragon Boat and the lucky Paddle Board raffle winner was Chad Reid.

We are grateful to our Major Sponsor Newton Medical Center/Atlantic Health System for their overwhelming support as well as our Friends of the Festival sponsors Fogarty & Hara Counsellors at Law, Northern Pride Web Design and Lake Mohawk Country Club. Thanks also go to our in-kind sponsors Brown & Brown Benefit Advisors; George Morville at Arthur J. Gallagher & Company; Nisivoccia, LLP, Certified Public Accountants and Advisors; Villa Capri II Restaurant and Lake Mohawk Pool.

On behalf of everyone at the Sparta Education Foundation, we want to thank our many Dragon Boat Festival volunteers; Mark Musilli, Blake Hargrave and the entire Lake Mohawk Country Club staff; the Lake Mohawk Board; the Lake Mohawk Papoose; Rich Carlson and the Lake Mohawk lifeguards and marine patrol; Sparta Township and Sparta Police Department for their continued support of our events; Captain Brad Erickson and the Sparta Ambulance Squad; Sparta School District Administration; all the staff from the five schools that had boats on the water; our own SEF trustee Erik Hein for his outstanding DJ skills; participants; team captains; spectators; and the terrific staff of Dynamic Boat Racing. Thanks also to Don Cutshall, our former SEF Board President who introduced us to Dragon Boat Racing and is stepping down from the SEF after many years of dedicated service. Each and every one of you has helped us raise funds to ensure future educational grants and programs for Sparta's public school students.
