Oneida church hosts music festival for local flood victims

By SPENCER DAVIDSON

ONEIDA, N.Y. (WKTV) - A local church held a music festival to support Mohawk Valley Flood Relief efforts, Sunday.

The "Amazing Grace" concert featured performances by many local students, who performed at least 50 songs over the course of the day.

The concert was held at St. Patrick's Church in Oneida, and while the show was free, donations were accepted for the "Karing Kitchen."

The aim of the event was to help flood victims to have an easier, and happier time during the upcoming holiday season.

"No one was hurt, but people lost a lot of their life in terms of material things," said Music Director, Roselle Lynch. "we're just trying to help raise some money so over the holidays, they can buy food and some things to make the holiday better coming up."

The Floods of June cause record high water levels in the Oneida Creek, causing water to spill seven feet above flood stage.
