Ted Sannella

"I have been fortunate enough to participate in all but two of the NEFFA Festivals. I missed the first because I hadn't started dancing yet, and I was away in the army in 1955.

"It is with great joy that I anticipate my annual pilgrimage to the New England Folk Festival, where I join my many friends in celebrating the glorious event that is ever-changing yet always remains the same." -- Ted Sannella

On November 18th, 1995, NEFFA, and indeed the world of dancing, lost a dear friend. Almost from the start, Ted was associated with NEFFA and supported its objectives in many ways.

Several events at the 1996 NEFFA Festival were dedicated to the memory of Ted Sannella:
