Her vision and strength explain why everything she’s been involved with in her quest to breathe new life into the city has been so successful, from the inaugural Festival of Banners to the latest incarnation of Streets Alive, the 2011 Sixty Sails project. Thanks for all you do, fearless leader!

    Orillia has been black and white until the last few years. Its salvation is with people like you that will blast us into the next milennium feet first in technicolour. We all need to take up the torch to expand the one horizon that will carry the name of Orillia as a great central art community in the future.
