Thanks to the Costal Community Credit Union and the Strathcona Regional District for being our corporate sponsors this year at SEAFEST 2013. Their pre-festival support gave us the important start-up funds to get that moveable feast rolling. And here is a mostly final accounting of the support that rolled back out to the Cortes and area communities. We supported local business with purchases of $2,148 as well as gave our charitable organization partner $1000. We paid local and area entertainers $550 and provided the space for local vendors to make just over $1000. We were able to pay area aquaculture growers and fishermen $2,899 for their local seafood product. And when the mist of oyster shell fragments finally settled on our Income and Expenses sheet…we made $2,056 for the Seafood Association water testing program and for boater education in the Gorge Harbour. Thanks again for such a remarkable outpouring of support and attendance. See you next year!
Kristen and John
