Just received this message from the organizers of Christmas in Markerville. At least the Cookie Walk is still happening!
Good morning! Last night the Board convened & after a lengthy discussion, they have decided to cancel the vendor & concession components of Christmas in Markerville. This was not an easy decision. They felt with the recent increase in Covid cases that we could not put our community at risk. The Cookie Walk will be available and held in the hall where social distancing can be achieved.
August 8th was a great day, with sunshine and a little rain and gusts of wind to keep everyone on their toes.
Sunday the 9th was a perfect day with lots of sunshine, and visitors spending time browsing artwork and chatting with the artists. Thank you to all the artists who attended: Amanda Frost, Christina Ekman, David Todd, Doug Taylor, Ed & Marlene Potter, Raevyn Berg, Ron Bradley, and Vern Steinbrecker. A last minute addition to the group, Derick Dunphy, set up for the second half of the day, and some of the local car club members even drove by to say “Hi” in style!
A big “Thank You” to the Markerville Creamery staff who dropped by to take ice cream orders from the artists and then deliver the treats right to our tents.
And of course, a huge thanks to everyone who came by to check out our first Artists on the Avenue event and for supporting the arts in this crazy year 2020.
