Family Fun Day at Hampshire Hills

On June 7th I will be performing at the Family Fun Day at Hampshire hills in Milford, NH to benefit the Jaiden Lyndi Tlapa Foundation. Jaiden was a dear little girl who lost her life in a tragic accident, and her family is channeling their love for her and their grief into this Foundation to assist families that have critically injured and terminally ill children. The foundation is also creating a website to bring together resources with needs, and hopes to focus on helping families to create special memories of their loved ones (hand-prints, DVD's with special photos and music, etc).

Another objective is to create a Jaiden Lyndi Tlapa Scholarship which will be awarded to a graduating senior who exemplifies certain character traits (compassion, kindness, outreach) and has made a positive impact in this world. Among other items, the application will look for volunteer hours, references, and most importantly an essay on how this person is planning to make a difference in this world.

The foundation will also support the NE Aquarium program at the Wadleigh Memorial Library, which was originally donated by Jaiden's Grandparents in her name.

I hope you will plan to spend part of your day at this fun event which will assist a very worthy cause. I'll be kicking things off at 11am...hope to see you there!

#75 With A Bullet!

I just learned that "The House on Christmas Street" has risen to #75 on the Clear Channel Radio New Music Chart, with over 600 plays! You can help it rise to the top by going here and playing it: http://clearchannelmusic.com/cc-common/artist_submission/all.html?page=1&gen=2.

Speaking of helping me out, I'm getting ready to start the Judy Pancoast Street Team, an opportunity for you to spread the word about me and my music and win some great prizes, like CDs and t-shirts. Keep checking back here for full details, coming soon!

And, as always, thanks for everything!

The House on Christmas Street at Santa's Village

I'm very excited to announce that this summer my CD The House on Christmas Street will be available to purchase in the gift shops of Santa's Village, Santa's Summer Home in Jefferson, New Hampshire. Several of the songs on the CD have been playing on the village-wide sound system for several years now, and if you've visited there you've probably heard "Pickles" at least once! So this is a perfect match, and I'm just delighted!
A trip to Santa's Village is a summertime tradition for many New Hampshire families, and well worth the trip to the beautiful White Mountains from anywhere in New England or beyond. Plan a trip there with your family this summer, and now you'll have a part of that trip and a part of me to enjoy on the ride home!
