It was you people who made it work

Island Arts Expo put on a great show, but they didn't do it alone

We wish to express our gratitude to all those who made the third annual Island Arts Expo a great success again this year.

The exhibitors, who came from as far as Saanichton and Haida Gwaii, put on a fabulous display of high quality art work, proven by the sales they made. The workshops were very well received by the presenters and attendees. We offer our thanks to all.

We really want to express our gratitude to everyone who brought food items or contributed cash for the food bank. Their generosity raised over $1,330 in cash and 48 bags of groceries.

The businesses and artists who contributed to the raffle draw helped make the event fun for all.

Thank-you for supporting the Arts and we look forward to Island Arts Expo 2012.

Jeff Shields, Susan Schaefer
