The Celebration of the Arts (COTA) held their final meeting on Tuesday September 7th at The Deer Head in Delaware Water Gap, PA for those who would like to help plan their 33rd Annual Festival. It was wonderful to experience the listing of final preparations to the festival given by the committees and individuals in charge of the many areas the festival covers. An excited energy moved among the attendees which enlivened those who have been a part of the festival throughout its long tenure and ignited the imaginations of those who have recently joined the endeavor; including those who came to the meetings for the first time that night. It’s going to be a great time. You’ll find more photographs in The Forwardian Arts Society COTA Meetings 2010 Gallery at www.myspace.com/forwardian_arts.
