Good morning Wawota, and thank you! We had a great time in Wawota on Friday for our Ducks Unlimited Community Concert Series. Everybody we ran across treated us like gold. Evans and I started off the day of broadcasting in the community hall, which played host to a pancake breakfast to kick off all of the activities.
The day actually started on Thursday when I drove out to Kenosee and checked in to the Kenosee Inn for the night. It was a beautiful evening. I enjoyed a delicious supper before taking a stroll down by the lake. I had a nice chat with the owner Ed, who popped by my supper table to say hi and chat for a while. The drive out to Wawota the next morning was absolutely beautiful. Not a cloud in the sky. The stars were out in full force, the moon was shining brightly, and a bright orange horizon was the first clue that the sun was about to rise to it’s full force in a couple of hours. It was one of those short drives that I wouldn’t have minded being a bit longer.
The Mayor of Wawota, Neil Birnie, had promised Evans and I that he would be waiting at the community hall at 5 that morning with a pot full of hot coffee. He didn’t disappoint. Thank you Neil. That first cup in the morning is always the best.
Just about all of the town council was at the hall bright and early to help cooks things up that morning and all had smiles a mile wide. There’s just something about people from a small town getting together for a good cause that you just don’t see in the city. Hospitable is the first word that comes to mind.
We met so many people in the short time we were broadcasting that morning. Business owners, community leaders, citizens. They were out in full force and nearly every one of them dropped by our broadcast location and told us how much they enjoy listening to the station everyday. Shannon, from Front Porch Interiors and Design dropped by with her wonderful personality and beautiful smile. She sure an brighten up a room!
So again, thank you Wawota, for what will undoubtedly be one of the most memorable days of the year for me!
