Letter to the Editor
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.
