Dear Seeker Chicks,
Kudos to Jason Mitchell, organizer extraordinaire, Storm Realty, sponsor extraordinaire and all the volunteers and agencies they pulled together to bring Winterfest Carnaval 2013 to the city. The festival is only in its fourth year and has grown dramatically in the variety of its offerings, the participating clubs and community groups, including city departments, and especially in the overwhelming public response. The excitement and activity in the Civic Complex salons and halls was at a fever pitch from Friday afternoon to late Sunday and it overflowed into the park and the other city venues that opened their doors to all comers through the weekend.
Inside the concourse of the Civic Complex, over the south entrance, there’s a sign that says you don’t need to be rich to have a rewarding life in Cornwall. Jason Mitchell and his cohorts of sponsors and volunteers are proof of that sign. They organized a fabulous and totally free Family Day holiday, sustained it over three days and showed us all a good time. Big thanks to everyone who was part of it.
