The auction raised over $35,000 for the Jim Hamilton Memorial Shad Fest Scholarship.  The scholarship assists high school seniors who seek to pursue a career in the arts and is now including the culinary arts.


It is with great appreciation The Friends of Ely Park wish to thank the following artists and woodworkers for their generous contributions: Mira Nakashima, Carter Sio, David Wilson Antick, Jeffrey Greene Design Studio, David Robinson Natural Edge, Birdie Miller Designs, Gene Salerno Funk a
nd Junk, Shaun Smith Rustic Red Door, Mark Sfirri, Ed Murphy, John Landis, Michael Oates, Robert Beck, and Ed Murphy.

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
 
We decided to cancel Shad’Tober. The decision was not reached lightly. However, we could not burden the already stressed infrastructure of the City. The festival brings thousands of visitors to Lambertville and that burden would not help our City right now. The need in Lambertville is great with over half the homes in the City affected by Hurricane Ida’s unprecedented flooding. There are some people that will spend a year getting their house back to a livable condition and some who will never return to their beloved homes because of the severe damage they sustained. In light of this tragedy, we are working on a fundraiser to benefit those flood victims hit hardest by
Hurricane Ida. Stay tuned for details.
