Desree & her manager Heather Dorrington recall the good times
they have had over the past 15 years.
"Heather and I marveled at the wealth of talent, that has
emerged over the years"’ Desree said.
"We have seen raw beginners blossoming into, club &
touring artists. Some of which have become household names in
today's country music".
" Plus the resort itself has continued to grow and the previous
owners along with the present one’s made major changes to
help us, especially the large covered deck complete with stage".
These weekends were regarded as a place where one could recharge
their ‘batteries’ and relax in beautiful surroundings
." We would especially like to thank the many people who
helped stage these weekends and also the audience, many traveling
long distances to join us ".
