As we begin the 2017-18 festival season, things are buzzing!
First, I would like to thank the board and staff for their time and commitment to this last festival season. Through all of the fundraisers and presence at community events, we were able to present a successful 2017 Tucson Folk Festival! Can you believe the crowd we had this year? At the headline performances, folks were sitting all the way back to the Kitchen Store, the Raffle Booth and on top of the cement tree rings and statues! A great time was had all weekend long!
Our Annual Membership Meeting held July 10, 2017, was filled with excitement and new energy! It was SO GREAT to welcome new folks to the meeting, as well as longstanding supporters of TKMA and the Festival.
We are creating more opportunities for the community to be come engaged with our organization! Be sure to explore our new staff and team positions under GET INVOLVED! Already we have teams meeting, working on new possibilities, such as our PR-Video Team; wait till you see their finished products! We’re creating new sponsorship activities, new community events offering more participation and enjoyment and more! Be sure to explore our website to acquaint yourself with all that is going on!
While TKMA is budding with possibilities, I feel it is important to share that the Board of Directors is always mindfu,l in all of our planning and implementations of new ideas, that we stay true to the essence of the Tucson Folk Festival; maintaining its organic nature while at the same time ensuring its unique essence. We will always keep this theme present in all that we set out to accomplish.
What a fun time for us all, eh?
