2 CUMBERLAND NOVEMBER 27-DECEMBER 4, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION CUMBERLAND – The revamped CumberlandFest, aided by perfect weather and a series of new offerings, secured enough money to donate more than $20,000 to local youth groups, which for the first time this year included non-sports organiza- tions. Cumberland Youth Activities Council Chairman Alan Neville said organizers really saw this year's CumberlandFest in August as "the turnaround event," learning some valuable lessons and gaining confi- dence through record attendance of 13,000 people that CumberlandFest is back and ready to grow. Each of the beneficiary groups received between $1,000 and $4,000 in return for their volunteer hours with the event, with the Boy Scouts winning the largest share. "I think we could grow that amount in the future," said Neville of the donations to groups. CumberlandFest has always had a two-fold purpose of acting as the town's main summer event and support- ing the local youth groups, he said. As an added benefit, it also now draws more attention for Diamond Hill Park at a time when there's a groundswell of sup- port for improving the park. The Board of Directors of the CYAC, the nonprofit organization that runs CumberlandFest, last week announced the naming of Jerry Schimmel as executive director of CumberlandFest 2020. "We are delighted that Jerry accept- ed our invitation to assume the post of executive director," said Neville. "Jerry has been involved with the event since its inception, and his combination of experience, leader- ship style and commitment makes him the ideal person for this impor- tant role." Schimmel succeeds Ernest Labbe who served as executive direc- tor this year. Schimmel really expressed a desire to take the leadership position, said CumberlandFest announces $20,000 in grants, names Schimmel director By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor Correction A story last week on the Cumberland Youth Soccer Association's offer to provide uniforms to the town's middle school soccer teams incorrectly stated that CYSA would be providing both the uniforms and practice shirts going forward. Only the uniforms will be an annual contribution, while the practice shirts fill a one-time need this year. SCHIMMEL See SCHIMMEL, Page 17 FRIDAY/SATURDAY SpecIAlS NOVeMBeR 29 TH & 30 TH , 2019 only.
