With Gratitude

Before we sign off for the summer and start preparing for our next season, I’d like to share my gratitude for the hard work and dedication of our staff and board members. It was admittedly a strange year, with the fresh start and no shortage of life’s curveballs, but these incredible women lent their strength and passion to our organization and ensured the success of the Festival. These wonderful people jumped in with both feet, put their faith in my vision and helped keep it all afloat and running smoothly.

A huge and sincere thank you to: 

Mariana Calles, dedicated co-op student turned marketing assistant.

Alissa Cassidy, general manager extraordinaire. 

Vidya Natarajan, Jenn Pearce and Julie Mytka, board members and cheerleaders. 

Honourable mention and many thanks to the significant others and families of this stellar team, for the support both in person and behind the scenes. 

With much love and excitement for what’s next,

Bizz Varty, Executive Director
