The lovely dynamics of feisty small towns

Writer happy to see the area's unique culture has a new outlet in the annual Wellness Festival.

Dear Editor

Ashcroft rocks!! In recent years, I have been impressed by the cultural life of this unique place, with its lively arts and performance. From the Ashcroft Art show to Martin’s Dinner Concerts, to today’s Winding Rivers events, the scene has been exquisite! And now the 1st annual Wellness Festival has put another feather in the cap of this great little town! Although I was not able to attend as much as I would have liked, due to time spent at the Walhachin Museum, I was impressed and excited to see and participate in this excellent community-building event!

When discussing the cultural scene in Ashcroft, one must acknowledge the work of the people responsible for these events. I am grateful for the time, energy and creativity of those who give so much. A tip of the Walhachin hat to the organizers/volunteers  and sponsors! And to the local politicians who had the good sense to choose the Wellness theme for Ashcroft, “Thank You!!”

(Delighted to have one foot in Ashcroft and one in Walhachin!)
