Dear Diary:

What a day. Amazing Opening Ceremony with Mayor Gregor Robertson and Councillors Anton, Reimer and Woodsworth.  Our seniors’ Sunshine Choir charmed everyone, Diane Wood got to speak our community’s truth to power as she read Sandy Cameron’s 100 years of Struggle to the assembled members of City Council, Wayne Lavallee transported us with his beautiful acapella ‘plains style’ singing, and then the Mayor and Councillors joined the Carnegie Street Band on stage to take us home with ‘The City of Vancouver 125th Anniversary Boogie’. The joint was rockin’. What a great way to start off the festival. I am a happy man.

    Wow. What an intense day preparing for tomorrow grand Opening Ceremony. Will the Mayor play congas with the Carnegie Street Band at the event?

      Dear Diary:

      Spent all day today catching up on my massive-far-too-long to do list. And getting ready for our new Managerial Intern Carrie Campbell – who starts tomorrow. Also preparing for Opening Ceremony, Carnegie Jazz Band concert and Aboriginal Artist Showcase this coming week. Three events I have been spending a lot of time working on. Good to catch up and to work on a day without a lot of emails coming in and the phone ringing. The excitement is building.
