Hats off to Fes­tiville Baddeck or­ga­niz­ing team

Dear Ed­i­tor: The beau­ti­ful sum­mer sky of Mon­day, Au­gust 7, 2017, added to an evening of fes­tiv­i­ties on a pedes­trian street with eats, crafts, mu­sic, and more for all to en­joy. This sec­ond sum­mer so­cial event was again due to the ded­i­ca­tion and pas­sion of the Fes­tiville Team.

Hav­ing lived in Baddeck for the past 40 plus years, own­ing and op­er­at­ing sev­eral busi­nesses on Che­bucto St, and be­ing in­volved in pre­vi­ous suc­cess­ful events as this, I am amazed as to how ef­fort­lessly these projects evolved.

Baddeck has been re­duced to be­ing a one in­dus­try town -tourism. These Fes­tiville Baddeck days ap­pear to bring out the best in our cit­i­zens and cre­ate a very pos­i­tive image to those com­ing to join us on our day.

I, for one, ap­pre­ci­ate the work and pas­sion of the com­mit­tee -all on vol­un­teer time given that sev­eral of the prin­ci­ples have ex­tremely busy day jobs.

We are so for­tu­nate to have peo­ple, such as these vol­un­teers, who will go the ex­tra mile to help each other, and our tourist in­dus­try - all in all mak­ing for a bet­ter com­mu­nity.

Of equal im­por­tance are the fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tions and sup­port of the spon­sors, busi­nesses, and in­di­vid­u­als who, with­out them, these events would not be pos­si­ble.
