Letter: Chamber missed opportunity to celebrate coronation
Letter to the editor. File

Dear editor:

I did — did you, celebrate the coronation, that is?

How disappointed myself and many others are that our local Chamber of Commerce did nothing to celebrate King Charles III.

The main street of NOTL is closed for the Icewine Festival, Peach Festival and White Effect Dinner.

Why could they not have had a tea party? It could have lined the main street with flags flying and the sound of laughter and enjoyment to celebrate the new King.

The chamber missed an opportunity to bring people to our beautiful town. A small donation could have been collected from people who attended and proceeds used to cover the costs, with the rest going to the NOTL Royal Canadian Legion.

The royals are not everyone’s cup of tea, but for those who would have liked to celebrate — and there were many of us — a big opportunity was missed.
