The rest made Alberni forest fest the best

Alberni Forest Fest not possible without volunteers and sponsors, organizer says.

To the Editor,

Now that we have completed our eighth Forest Fest, I would like to thank the many volunteers and sponsors who helped to make this year’s event a reality.Our volunteers are too many to list and our sponsors will be recognized in another manner. All of their contributions make Forest Fest possible.

There were many highlights. I know the kids loved Bobs and Lolo, but one of the most exciting for Diane and me was the concert by David Francey and Craig Werth. They interspersed their music with captivating stories about what had inspired their songs.

David and Craig’s careers have taken them to venues in many countries. Their stop in Port Alberni was the last on a three-week Western Canadian tour.

They said that our warm audience and the beautiful surroundings of our venue made the evening’s concert the perfect ending to their tour.

John Mayba,

organizer,
