Ellen Newton - June 2013

Ellen Newton at the 2013 Summerland Bluegrass Festival

I know that you all new Ellen Newton. She has been part of our Bluegrass Family for many years.

Ellen was responsible for the  Lawrence Trudeau Bursary, taking care of the funds. and helping with candidate selection.

She also served as a Festival board member for many years.

It was a sad day when Ellen passed away. She will be missed behind the scenes, as well as on the grounds of the Festival.  She was always more than eager to help out with whatever we needed, and had a great wealth of information that she shared with all of us.

We owe her a lot of thanks, and she will be missed. 

May you rest in peace, Ellen.
