Thread Name: Apple Hollow Music Fest Quebec Canada '09
Subject: RE: Apple Hollow Music Fest Quebec Canada '09

As I have already posted on other sites, it was worth every mile I drove - about 3500 by the time I arrived! I had a blast and the four friends who accompanied me enjoyed it totally. Especially dad(95), as you noted on the pic page. Now I am committed to taking him to every music event we can manage. If we make it to 95, may we be in as good humour and able to enjoy as much of life as he does. Last night, concert in the park at Baie d'Urfe, tonight the cafe in Ormstown. We have restrung his guitar, now if someone will tune it...

Apple Hollow enriched a lot of lives!! It has transformed mine.I'm sticking around Quebec indefinitely so expect to drive only 43 miles next year! But I am sure that will only add to my enjoyment - as if anything could. I really was high as a kite, wasn't I! I would not be in Montreal today had it not been for Apple Hollow. And I have loved Montreal and Quebec since the first day I arrived in August 1968.

So, perhaps I have more to say thank you for than some but that was one terrific time. I was in on the organization of the first Edmonton Festival in 1980, so I have a good idea of what goes into it. You did a monumental job and produced a fantastic party.

Thank you - and an offer to help in any way I can.
