The Celebration of the Arts (COTA)* held their annual wrap up meeting on Tuesday October 13th at The Deer Head Inn* in Delaware Water Gap, PA to relive all aspects of this year’s Arts and Jazz festival which took place September 11th - 13th and to discover areas in which the 32 year old event can be improved upon. A great deal of reminiscing took place as friends who came to know each other throughout the years praised one another on their participation in the festival which led to dreams of future endeavors. And, those dreams were plentiful leading to passionate discussions.
The General Meeting are held the 2nd Tuesday of the month with the next one scheduled for Tuesday March 9th. It will be held at The Deer Head Inn* at 7:30pm. All who love jazz and the arts are welcomed to attend. The Festival itself is scheduled to be held the weekend after Labor Day.
