The foundation also had other news Thursday: Bill Pytlovany, head of digital media for the foundation, announced the launching of its new website, www.freedomparkscotia.com.

Freedom Park Association worked with Elite Venture Media, a local company, in constructing the new website.

“It provides mainly information and gratitude and appreciation to the sponsors because we depend on the sponsors and our members,” said Pytlovany. “This way anybody who comes to the website will automatically see who our sponsors are, so they can do business with them and can thank them for coming down here.”

The website’s main use is to provide fans information about upcoming performances, along with background on the individual performers.

Freedom Park is located in the village alongside the Mohawk River, next to Jumpin’ Jack’s restaurant.
