Celebration of the Arts (COTA) held their final General Meeting prior
to their 38th
Annual Jazz and Arts Festival which is scheduled to be held September
throughout the town of Delaware Water Gap, PA on Tuesday September
The meeting place, which was in the town's The Deer Head Inn
was filled with individuals and their thoughts of the festival that
would be occurring within a few days. Remaining tasks were spoken of
with reports of their completion or near completion and were greeted
with a thoughtful appreciation for the update by the company.
meeting came to a close with some thoughtful sentiments shared by
Board of Directors member, Garth Woods, who expressed his heartfelt
appreciation to all who spent their time and talents bringing this
year's festival together. He also talked about how the festival
orginates from the love of all who participates in it and, while this
year has seen a great deal of sadness due to the passing of several
people intimately involved in the festival, it is this love that
continues and will continue to make the festival something wonderful.
It was with these words that a moment of reflective silence before an
applause echoed throughout the venue leading to the ajournment of the
meeting and thoughts of the festival with all the blessings it
provides. I look forward to seeing you there. In the meantime, you’ll
find more photographs taken during the September 8th
