LETTER: Thanks Folk Fest

Despite the torrential downpour that threatened to dampen our spirits, it didn’t and I’m proud of those who did sit through it.

As a veteran volunteer of the Mission Folk Music Festival I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the wonderful people that came out in support of the festival.

Despite the torrential downpour that threatened to dampen our  spirits, it didn’t and I’m proud and appreciative of those who did sit through it and showed their enthusiasm.

Acts like this makes me as a volunteer happy to have been there to share the experience with them.

Although for the most part I was under the covered area of the bistro, it still amazed me, as in past years, how people from all over come rain or shine and partake in the festivities. I’m looking forward to doing it all over again next year even if it rains.

Thanks Missionites for showing the world just how much we love the arts.
