Letter: Thanks for positive editorial on NOTL
Letter to the editor

Dear editor:

Thanks for taking the time to remind us of all the great things in NOTL and how lucky we are to live here, ("Plenty for which to be thankful," Editorial, Oct. 14). 

I would like to add a huge shout out to everyone at the Shaw Festival theatre for providing our town with the gift of world-class theatre in good times and bad without fail.

I am absolutely amazed and delighted with every offering at the Shaw year after year and enjoy having the actors, crew, creative and business people and patrons of the Shaw as an integral part of our community. They fully embrace NOTL and give us their all every day.  

I visited the theatre competition in another small town in Ontario this past summer and the experience did not compare to my bike ride down the street to our very own theatre. The nimble manoeuvering of the creative and business process paid off exponentially in this difficult time.

Weekly I experienced string quartets and mini plays at 10 a.m. and afternoon performances on the back lawn with actors improvising, singing, dancing and playing their instruments, making it look so easy. I had to pinch myself each time that I didn't have to wait in line for the privilege.

And on a final note, Tim Jennings made the Globe and Mail Report on Business magazine Sept. 22 due to his brilliant insight to purchase pandemic insurance. That precious back cover is reserved for Canada's business elite. Very impressive indeed. All here in our precious little town!
