To The Editor,

For a combination of personal reasons, I have recently resigned as Lead Organizer of Balconfête Vankleek Hill Porchfest. It has been one of the pleasures of my life to have been able to initiate this popular event here in Vankleek Hill. The past five years have seen continued growth in size and popularity of the event that could not have been achieved without the efforts of a hard working committee, the financial and moral support of Low’s Realty and The Review, the contribution of time and talent of our musicians and the enthusiastic support of the community.

My role in this event has allowed me to assist in the development of Porchfests in Almonte, Ottawa and Hudson which has been very rewarding. I have also been hired to coordinate similar events in Deux Montagnes, Quebec and the Lower Laurentians all based on our local success.

I wish the organizing committee continued success in the coming years and thank all of those involved for their support in the past.
