Manlius community comes together for first-ever Swan Jam

— “There is an educational component to almost everything we do,” said Marguerite Mitchell-Sundberg, educational director for the Red House. “Our Educational Programming for kids, like the Rock Camp, is one example of how we have created an opportunity for students to learn from one another, collaborate with professionals, take what they have learned and share it with their community. The fact that both No Resolution and Repose are playing together with ‘Rock Campers’ from Cruise Control at Swan Jam is not only a proud moment for me personally because I love each of those kids, but it is a proud moment for the organization. It shows that our lofty mission wasn’t so lofty after all and that we are succeeding in bringing art to the community and, more importantly, inspiring the youth in the community to do the same.”

Kevin Holmquist, branch manager of the Key Bank office opening in September in the village of Manlius, was quick to support Swan Jam.

“All of us at Key Bank are very excited and honored to be a part of this wonderful event. It is sure to benefit our iconic swans, and the entire Manlius community,” Holmquist said

We were all saddened by the tragic event that happened to the swan eggs earlier this year, and hopefully the Swan Jam will be another proud moment for the community towards further enhancing our treasured swans and the Swan Pond for many years to come.

All area residents are encouraged to attend in what is shaping up to be a signature event for the community.
