Dear Holyoke Winter Carnival Friends: It is with great regret I inform you that planning for the 2015 Holyoke Winter Carnival has been suspended. Over the past three years I have enjoyed working with a broad swath of community members, volunteers, and organizations in developing the programming for the annual Winter Carnival which brought so much joy and happiness to many local families. Sadly personal matters involving the heart, concerns about an aging parent, and increased work responsibilities have made it difficult for me to continue with the planning of the Carnival this year. So I will take a much needed break and look ahead to the future. Thank you for the many wonderful Winter Carnival memories. Sincerely, Ken Johnston
