The family has continued to support the center even through family challenges, including the death of Bettiol Jr. from cancer in 2003, and financial challenges to the center as well.
We’re glad to see the Bettiol family recognized for its commitment to the growing arts community in Oneonta.
To Albert Lepera and Richard Hall for returning a lost horse to its 5-year-old owner.
The men found the 8-year-old horse about six miles from its home.
“The two of them made a little girl very happy today,” said Melinda Memoli, whose daughter, Gabriella, had received the horse, named Spirit, two weeks before as a present.
We thank Lepera and Hall for making sure the horse was returned and making Gabriella happy.
