Tiffany Nigro and Deb Smith of The Pettengill House, Kevin Kelley and Cynthia Keefe, Plumfest Organizers If you missed Plumfest 2016 you missed a great time. Held on beautiful Plum Island on May 21, 2016, Plumfest featured an island-wide celebration of music and community. The island was alive with music, energy, and food. Residents hosted free music from over sixty local bands on their driveways, porches and lawns. All donations supported The Pettengill House Children and Family Service programs which supports over 3,000 adults, children and families from nine Greater Newburyport communities. Our thanks go out to Jason Novak, for his beautiful artwork donation, Promo Printing, Town of Newbury and City of Newburyport, as well as all that attended. Special shout out to the Plum Island residents for their support and the many musicians who donated their time and talent in support of The Pettengill House. Lastly sincere thanks to Plumfest 2016 Coordinators Cynthia Keefe and Kevin Kelley and their team for all efforts supporting this great day and cause.
