Thank you to everyone who took part in our Annual Victoria County Winter ActiveFest 2012, it was greaty appreciated as we Took The Roof Off Winter! A BIG THANK YOU to the volunteers, organizers, organizations, service providers, facilities who all should be commended for providing winter physical activity opportunities benefitting our residents and visitors.
We’d also like to thank NS Health & Wellness in partnering with us to promote and to provide Take The Roof Off Winter Toques.
We’ll be back next year with a longer event: one month, with a great amount of options to chose from for you and your family, along with greater resources to work with.
Thank You again to everyone for making this years edition a success. Some key events were cancelled, re-scheduled or post-poned due to the weather, but as you know, we can’t control the weather.
I leave you with this testimonial/feedback on this years event:
“I’m in Vancouver for a conference, and just spent time scrolling through this (Victoria County Winter ActiveFest 2012). Amazing! The photos are beautiful, and the array of events featured, just lovely. Made me want to leave Vancouver for Cape Breton on the next flight! What a great job you’re doing.
There’s such diversity, something for everyone, and so creative. This is really wonderful.
What kind of response are you getting? I feel as if you could be marketing this to folks far beyond the jurisdiction. I mean, I’ll be speaking to female friends of mine who I’m sure would love to take part in some of the things you’ve advertised here. I think there’s a much wider audience who would be so interested in what your region has to offer. Anyway, great work!!
