I would like to extend a huge thank you to the many businesses who sponsored, advertised and participated, the community groups that helped and volunteered, the Delta Parks, Recreation and Culture staff for their help, and the public at large for supporting our second Tsawwassen Outdoor Movie Nights this past summer.
The weather didn't fully cooperate on two of the nights but the Tsawwassen crowd showed their love for these events by showing up even when we had to change the venue due to unsettled weather conditions.
Thanks, also, to the South Delta Baptist Church for saving us at the last minute.
These events have proven to be much more than just a night to watch a great movie under the stars. This is a night were families and friends, neighbours and visitors gather for the common purpose of having a good time.
The events start with music, games, demos, activities and a chance to visit with local businesses and groups.
It gives us a chance to feature local bands to entertain and it also gives us an opportunity to raise funds for great local charities and projects.
Once the sun sets those interested in watching the movie gather up their chairs and blankets and enjoy the show.
As a business community, we are pleased that we can offer these events that cross age boundaries and allow us all to enjoy and celebrate the beautiful community we live in.
I am happy to inform the public the BIA board of directors is committed to bringing these events for a third year to Tsawwassen. With the support of our sponsors, advertisers and the community we will be able to enjoy three more wonderful nights of fun on July 24, August 7 and 21, 2010.
Our theme next year will be adventure movies so we invite the public to start thinking of titles and send their suggestions. Photos are also posted on the BIA website at www.shoptsawwassen.com.
