Ribfest sug­ges­tion very ‘con­struc­tive’

Cape Breton Post - - EDITORIAL -

Fur­ther to the re­cent let­ter to the editor (‘Ribfest should add shut­tle ser­vice,’ Cape Bre­ton Post, July 16), the or­ga­niz­ers of Ribfest 2015 would like to thank Beth Mathe­son for her kind re­marks and con­struc­tive sug­ges­tion.

This vol­un­teer-driven event was or­ga­nized by the Ro­tary clubs of the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Mu­nic­i­pal­ity in sup­port of the Hos­pice Pal­lia­tive Care So­ci­ety of Cape Bre­ton. The many vol­un­teers and com­mu­nity spon­sors in­volved are gen­uinely hum­bled by the com­mu­nity’s over­whelm­ing re­sponse to the event and by the gen­eros­ity of Cape Bre­ton­ers.

As any com­mu­nity vol­un­teer can at­test, the lo­gis­tics in­volved in mount­ing an event of this size and com­plex­ity were many. De­spite our best ef­forts, we ac­knowl­edge that there is al­ways room for im­prove­ment and we par­tic­u­larly want to as­sure the com­mu­nity that we will be pay­ing par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to im- prov­ing ac­cess and ac­com­mo­da­tion for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties in the fu­ture.

Here’s to a big­ger, bet­ter and more ac­ces­si­ble Ribfest in 2016.
