Gaynor McCown: A NYC Outward Bound School Thanks APHS

A Letter From the Students of Gaynor McCown

To Don Stine and the Asbury Park Historical Society,

I just want to formally thank you on behalf of my students and myself. Thank you so much for supporting my students and the Rock of Ages class that I am currently teaching. It was great to see that Rock n’ Roll is alive and well in Asbury Park, N.J. It was great to be welcomed and to witness first hand new music being recorded live, right in front of our eyes. The Lake House Academy was an amazing sight to see and everyone there was so genuine. We were later treated to more V.I.P. service getting a tour of the House of Independents, The Stone Pony and The Paramount. All of this made it a great experience. Thank you for sharing your passion and knowledge of music history with my students. It was great to see how much love you have for music and the community of Asbury Park. Even though Asbury Park has such a rich musical past, it was great to see that there is a future there as well. On behalf of my students and myself we wish you all the best and look forward to working with you in the future.
