As we near the end of the calendar year here in 2009 and we begin the whirlwind of Holiday festivities with family and friends, the Chincoteague Insider thought it fitting to give-it-up for the Chincoteague Cultural Alliance.
The Chincoteague Cultural Alliance is
truly the “Home of the Arts on Chincoteague Island,” and I want to go on the record as being very grateful for their existence. I say that not only for the entertainment they have brought to me personally, but for the fact that they enrich the Chincoteague experience to an immeasurable degree and create a unique yet complementary layer to the many other offerings this wonderful island contains.
The Chincoteague Cultural Alliance gives prospective visitors to Chincoteague Island a different take on a Chincoteague Island Vacation, thus expanding the base of possible visitors. This is undeniable in my opinion.
In my humble opinion, every business on Chincoteague Island should be feeling this spirit of gratitude as well. We are all the better given the hard work and tangible results the CCA brings to Chincoteague Island.
Let’s take a brief look in review of what the CCA brought to Chincoteague in 2009; Scott Ainsle, Wale Liniger, the Blue Rhythm Boys, Trio Milpa-Wind Ensemble, The Plein Air Art Event, Music at the Dock, Chincoteague Unplugged, the Summer Film Series, the “Day in the Life of the Island” photo contest, the Native American Festival, and of course the 2nd Saturday Art Stroll…Wow! What a year.
So, let me take the risk of naming names. I say this because I fear leaving some worthy individual out, but I’ll be brave.
Bill Troxler, Bob Behr, Billie Dayton, Jane Richstein, Jon Richstein, John Beam, Nancy West, Megan McCook, Karen Lukacs and Madelaine Adamson and anyone else who works with the CCA…the Chincoteague Insider is giving you a rousing round of applause for a job well done. Thank you for the amazing entertainment you bring to Chincoteague Island. I can’t wait to see what you have up your collective sleeve for 2010.
Until the next time…
