30th anniversary convention is now past history. This was our second convention held at Seabreeze Park, Rochester, New York. This was also my first trip back to Seabreeze Park since the devastating fire in 1994. I didn't know what to expect after the loss of PTC #36 and the carousel museum including the two G.W. Long miniature carousels. I was told the following by one of the Long family when I complimented them on the magnificent restoration and rebuilding of PTC #31. Their statement, "We are the Long family, builders of carousels. A fiberglass or mass produced carousel was not an option." The carousel, the building and the growing carousel museum is excellent. I recommend a visit when you are in the area. Hopefully, the CMMA will be invited back again in the next several years for another convention there.
