Tribute to Festival Volunteersby Lauren
My favorite paragraph:
Local TV news has a love affair with bad weather, or even the possibility of it, the way a child anticipates candy. I have been in Three Rivers Arts Festivals when the festival began with eight, nine and even 10 straight days of sun. Not a single TV crew comes by. When it drizzles the next day, every station sends a camera. We can argue the merits of this but what is undeniable is that they never effectively report the amazing job the volunteers, staff and exhibitors do when cleaning up after a bad storm.
The accompanying sketch features portraits of Jack Baird (left) and Sam Garland, two long-time Festival volunteers who truly deserve the praise for their dedication and willingness to help out.
