Fes­ti­val re­vival is great news

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

The Ed­i­tor, What great news you pub­lished in the Jan­uary 30 edi­tion. This won­der­ful news is the ar­ti­cle headed “Fes­ti­val of Lights re­vived.” How su­per to me was the word “re­vived.” As well, funds are pro­posed pend­ing pre­sen­ta­tion at the Fe­bru­ary coun­cil meet­ing.

It was so dark in the park dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son of 2018. I very much sup­port that a por­tion of my prop­erty taxes be al­lo­cated for the con­tin­ued cre­ation of the fes­ti­val of lights, bring­ing to each and ev­ery­one of us, re­gard­less of age, an emo­tional sea­sonal sup­port of nat­u­ral-set­ting de­light.

It was ap­pro­pri­ate that the year 2018, be­ing the 100th an­niver­sary of the First World War, that our hol­i­day Fes­ti­val of Lights and park be in dark­ness. A trib­ute of thank­ful com­mem­o­ra­tion. All pos­i­tive best to Anne Le­duc, Direc­tor of North Glen­garry’s Com­mu­nity Ser­vices when she presents to Coun­cil.
