We would like to thank the following people for making the Canada Booth a success at the International Festival again this year.
We’re grateful to the Canadian Consulate in Atlanta for their support, notably Peter Taylor and Scott Cutler who dropped by on Thursday to check out the installation and drop off some goodies.
We’re are also much indebted to Joe Breschi, Head Coach Men’s Lacrosse, and Matthew Hudson, Director of Lacrosse Operations, both at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, for lending us a lacrosse stick and balls. Lots of people were very excited about this!
Similarly, we are grateful to Sue Mitchell for the curling equipment–it was a big hit!
As well as to Gary O’Neill for the basketball and hockey equipment. And Paul Meade for lending us the Maple Leafs puck and the loonie and toonie.
Last, but certainly not least, a big huge thank you to our wonderful volunteers— our booth veterans Caroline, Dominique, Gary, Greg, Martin, Shirley and Sue and new recruits Alyssa, Emilie, Geoff, Jen, Joe Lynda, Paul and Sharon . We could not have done it without you!
A MILLION THANKS TO ALL!
