Smithtown, NY - September 4, 2013 - As Suffolk County Legislator Lynne C. Nowick is term limited and cannot run again for the Suffolk County Legislature, she offered a heartfelt thank you to everyone involved in organizing, producing, staging and promoting the annual Dennis Cannataro Summer Family Concert Series on the lawn of the Smithtown Library. The concert series has been renamed after Legislator Nowick’s brother who passed away in 2011. “Nine years ago, Dennis suggested the concerts and in partnering with Dave Berner of the Smithtown Library District and the Friends of the Smithtown Library they were able to turn his vision into a reality. Dennis took great pride in making this an extraordinary community event,” stated Legislator Nowick. 
This year close to 15,000 people attended the five shows. Two had to be cancelled because of the weather. According to Legislator Nowick, “The concert series has proven to be a source of family fun while improving the revenue of the local businesses as concert goers enjoy a pre- show dinner and snacks.” 
Anthony Monteleone, president of the Smithtown Library Board of Trustees, said, “Thank you Lynne Nowick for supporting our application for funding these concerts for the last nine years. It has been a pleasure working with your and we look forward to seeing you around Smithtown.” 
In her closing remarks, Legislator Lynne Nowick said, “I thank my brother for bringing me this idea and for making the quite lawn on the library come alive on Thursday evenings in the summertime.”
