As the afternoon cooled off and the Ravelers' music kept getting hotter and keeping the crowd energized, my luck held with three more random and extemporaneous conversations that turned out, as you'll hear, to have a common theme; how much people like and appreciate Claremont and thoroughly enjoyed the day's festivities. Each guest, in their own words, was quite effusive about the quality of the program for the day - the parade, the booths, the concert, the food...even not bemoaning the cancellation of the fireworks too much...as the Ravelers seemed to light up the area just as well, in their own inimitable way - with much less fire risk.
Enjoy Part 2 of these interviews. Apologies for some what diminished audio quality, but tuning out a rock concert in the background sometimes leaves a mark. Maybe next year we'll do THX or Dolby...or not.

Claremont Speaks' goal is to provide Claremont's people, businesses, charities, political organizations and active citizens/coalitions an improved venue for speaking out, and being heard in their own words and voice.
