Remembering Ted Boyer
Those of you who have attended our concerts in the park in previous years are sure to remember Ted Boyer - an integral member of our committee and a tireless worker for the success of these concert series events.
Perhaps you will remember his corny jokes - frequently delivered from the stage. Perhaps you will remember him selling pizza each week - a volunteer effort of his own designed to increase service clubs profits. Perhaps you will remember his Subaru wagon, rolling across the grass carrying tables, or chairs, or banners, or other items for our weekly set-up. Many of us remember him as the weekly weatherman - the person to whom our committee turned for the "official" decision on whether the concerts would be moving indoors when rain threatened.
This concert series was a part of Ted - perhaps more than any of us. Whenever he heard a good band, he remembered to suggest them for next summer. He made contacts with performers and agents from miles around to secure the best possible entertainment for our friends in the park each week. It was always a moment of pride for Ted when he could introduce a new group to the Souderton crowd, and always a moment of pride for our other committee members when Ted liked the groups that the rest of us brought in.
Quick to tease and quick to joke; but equally quick to support the people and things he cared about, Ted was a true friend to civic life in Souderton and a true friend to our committee. We miss him at our breakfast meetings (he was always fussy about his creamed chipped beef!). We miss him in the park. But we carry him always in our hearts.
