WCA Booth at Fun Fest

Posted on: July 9, 2018  |  

Neither excessive heat (temperatures were above 30 Celcius all day with humidex reading 51 Celcius) nor high winds with gusts over 70kms could deter the dedicated WCA volunteers from soliciting members and providing WCA info/materials to Falcon Funfest visitors!

Cheryl Bryant and Ronald Smith in front of the WCA Booth that they set up at 9:30am Saturday morning. Heavy winds soon took its toll, bending and breaking the canopy frame and causing general havoc to the midway.

Not deterred, we moved our WCA Booth to a canopy-less location under a shady tree as seen in the second photo featuring Alan Roberts, WCA President, Deborah Seguin, WCA Membership Committee Chair, and Cheryl Bryant, Events Committee Chair.

 

Heavy winds soon took their toll, bending and breaking the canopy frame and causing general havoc to the midway. Not deterred, we moved our WCA Booth to a canopy-less location under a shady tree.   WCA’ s new location was serenaded by the loud Country music from a nearby Fair attraction and the Ferris Wheel.  Traffic past our booth was very limited impacted by the weather conditions which kept FunFest attendance lower than expected. Attendance increased noticably after dinner time.

A Big thank you to Cheryl Bryant for her outstanding work in creating this opportunity to promote our Association at the Fair.  The booth space is provided free to WCA by the FunFest organizer, Corley and Lindsay Sweeting, owners of the Laughing Loon in the Falcon Lake mall. Corley is also the President of the South East Chamber of Commerce.

Also thanks to Alan Roberts, Deborah Seguin, Allison Bonneteau, Warren (WCA Honorary Director) and Jocelyn Barnard, Cheryl Bryant and David Houston (Falcon Lake WCA member) for working the Booth and helping WCA to recruit new members from Falcon Lake and neighboring lakes.

Well folks – we’ve reached 10,000 followers on our Facebook page – a long time personal goal of mine. Having administered this page since 2017 & having now reached this goal it will soon be time for me to move on & have someone else at WCA administer the page. Hoping to hand it over before end of February.The biggest jump in followers occurred during the 2021 Wildfires and during the 2022 floods as WCA kept cottagers & other park users informed- often 16 hour days during these events, always 7 days a week. And does anything say “Whiteshell” more than Daniel Alexander’s amazing wildlife videos & photos? We’ve had some of our Facebook posts reach well over 100,000 people & some posts were picked up by the media and made the news.Big thank you to Kristin Pingatore, Deborah Sequin & Angela Hogan who originally set up the WCA Facebook page & then trusted me to administer it all these years.Lastly a big thank you to all of you who contribute to our page by submitting photos, videos, news & stories.Be sure to support the WCA & whoever takes over this page in the days to come. ...
