Car show organizers deserve thanks

I am in awe at the organization that must have gone into this weekend’s Show & Shine [car show] in Qualicum Beach.

It is only a couple of hours after hordes of people roamed the streets in Qualicum… and not a piece of litter anywhere. The streets are tidy and quiet. Not a sandwich wrapper, plastic cup, or any other garbage to be seen.

I live right downtown and was witness to the probably thousands of people that roamed the streets on Sunday afternoon… people, children, and dogs (not to mention the dance on Saturday night). By the time I walked my dog around 6 p.m., nothing to be seen of what had occurred only a few short hours ago.

Having organized events in my past, my mind boggles at the organization and co-ordination that must have gone on behind the scenes by both the Seaside Cruizers and the Town of Qualicum Beach.

I feel truly blessed that I live in this beautiful town! Thank you.
