There are very few words to adequately describe Saturday night. Incredible, beautiful, full, exciting, happy-making are a few. What must be said, over and over, are so many thank yous. The list of people that made the night come together is extensive. It includes poet-athletes, artists, family members, staff and board members, vendors and community folks that gave their resources of all kinds (time, energy, creativity, vision, art, reflections, poetry, voice etc etc).
