What a 10th Anniversary x 2 for Art on the Waterfront; all the stars aligned to make it a special weekend! I want to say it was worth the wait, however, I think a better turn of phrase would be that the wait made the weekend all the sweeter!
I have to say thank you to all the volunteers who made this event happen in record time. You know the saying: if you need something done, you get busy people to make it happen. Thank you tic, Margaret, #Darcy, Christina (and all the people at The Gathering House) Lindsey, Carrie, Amanda 2020 – Artist, #Suzanne, #John, Jay, #Dan, #Des, #Deidre, #Peter and #Chris from Optimal Show Experience, Marc for doing sound and Jeff for co-hosting on the main stage, and so many more.
We were overwhelmed by the community support of our amazing sponsors, Canadian Heritage, Lise Buma, The United Counties of Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry, and all the local businesses. The Township of North Dundas, the Chesterville and District Historical Society, the Chesterville Fire Station Fire Prevention, Chesterville & District Lions Club and Rotary Club of Chesterville & District were exceptional to work with – thank you.
We were blown away by the amazing talent that came to Art on the Waterfront, the Buskers, Therien Martial Arts and Fitness Centre, the #Chesterville Line Dancers, Ashley Thomas School of Dance, the great line-up of musicians that tic, our Music Director, arranged and all the wonderful artists. What made the weekend the best ever was all the wonderful people who came out to see the artists. You are all the reason we (volunteers) do this. It was the greatest compliment for all our hard work.
This will be my last year as Chair, though I will remain on the committee in another role. We always need volunteers. Do you want to work with a great bunch of people? Send us a message – planning for next year starts in October.
Thank you for this great opportunity of Chairing this Committee. I’m looking forward to seeing where the future takes us.
