Dear Swannanoa Community Member:
As you know, the Swannanoa Pride Community Coalition (SPCC) has hosted Swannanoa’s Mill Around the Village Festival for the past two years. We were very happy with the success of the festival, the high level of community participation, and positive reactions from festival-goers, vendors and businesses. Several people have told us that they are looking forward to another great festival this year. This enthusiastic interest has sparked new energy and ideas for creating a 2009 Festival.
Although SPCC has been privileged to host the festival for its first two years, we feel the time is right to turn this event over to the community. This is a wonderful community event, but it has proven to be too large of an undertaking for the relatively small number of volunteers involved the past two years. We also want to give more people the opportunity to participate in all aspects of the festival. Including the planning!
The Festival has provided Swannanoa with an excellent start to a fine tradition. We invite you to participate in the continuation of this tradition by attending the first 2009 Mill Around the Village Festival meeting. All interested community members, businesses, vendors and organizations are welcome to attend and explore how we can keep Swannanoa in the limelight as an active and community-minded place to live, work and shop. Even if your volunteer time is limited, we hope you’ll come to this initial meeting to share your ideas.
Please join us for the 2009 Mill Around the Village Festival planning meeting:
WHEN: Saturday, April 25, at 10 a.m.
WHERE: Bee Tree Fire Station, 510 Bee Tree Road.
WHO: Anyone interested in making this year’s Festival a success!
Feel free to forward this invitation to anyone you think may be interested in attending.
If you have questions about the meeting, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (828)337-7545.
We hope to see you on the 25th.
2008 Mill Around the Village Committee
