Pay It Forward Event Underway At Legion

Play It Forward Event

Underway At Legion

Oneonta’s Mark Spaziani, Rick Rogers and Ross Rogers – The Roundhouse Rockers – gave an evening of live music started this afternoon at the second annual Play It Forward event at the Oneonta Vets Club. This seven-hour jam session features live music, a chicken BBQ and raffles, with 100 percent of all funds donated to the American Legion Legacy Run. At right, Oneonta native Sandy Ross shares a kiss on the dance floor with her new husband Robb; the two married this morning. The couple, who flew up from Florida, co-created the event with Sandy’s sister Carla Balnis, and in lieu of a reception, decided to invite family and friends to attend the event and donate to the cause. Musicians from Florida, NYC, Utica and Oneonta will keep you rocking until 10 p.m. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)

Rain Doesn’t Dampen OCCB Teddy Bear Picnic

Rain Doesn’t Dampen

City’s Teddy Bear Picnic

As a dreary storm made it's way though the area it was a good day for ducks...and teddy bears! The Oneonta Community Concert Band held it's annual Teddy Bear's Picnic in Wilber Park this afternoon playing a wide selection of music from marches to Mambos. Following tradition, a teddy bear was raffled off to a child who came to see the show. "It is most important to us to make live music accessable to young people." said director Renee Prins, Oneonta, on right. "We made it a rule years ago that the child has to be present to receive the bear." This year, the winner of the bear was Ashley Buol, who was visiting from North Carolina. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
