A heart-warming message from our local town crier
participation. To CAJ VanderVoort and the Alexandra and Cromwell Communities; the vans were invaluable – enabling the Town Criers to visit all corners of our beautiful region so a special thank you for your generous contribution.
Thank you to Mayor Tony Lepper for his contribution, enthusiasm and involvement in the Tournament and to TV One and local radio who did their very best to bring the Tournament into our living rooms -your publicity was priceless.
Also, to Bill and Michelle Clark, Roxburgh for the handcrafted, iconic trophies presented to the competition winners – beautiful, everlasting reminders of success and a wonderful time in Central Otago.
Against the odds, together we pulled this tournament off – in style. The Criers loved us – our people, our food, our scenery – everything about us and we loved them.
Their enthusiasm, their colour and their willingness to become involved in the Blossom Festival, the Roxburgh Concert, visit the elderly and the schools all the while competing in the serious business of the competition for top honours.
All the Criers will continue to talk about their stay in Central Otago for a very long time, promoting our ‘World of Difference’.
Your generosity means all Tournament costs have been covered and the financial wrap-up will show either break even or a very small credit balance.
Thank you, I am humbled from the bottom of my heart.
