Having the unique vantage point of working the cart for Spiritex, I had the opportunity to engage several tourists about the wonder-filled event that was LEAF Downtown AVL.
After encouraging several to check out the festivities, I had more than a few come back and thank me for the recommendation. One in particular mentioned how lucky we are to have an organization that does such vital work in the community and how needed similar efforts are elsewhere.
Personally, my best takeaway from the event was how it brought such an eclectic, diverse group of people together. Overall, I’m extremely grateful for the phenomenally positive energy, cultural enrichment and platform for our great community that LEAF [Community Arts] brought to downtown [on the Aug. 1-2] weekend.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you Jennifer Pickering for your leadership through the years, as well as the amazing group of people that comprise LEAF. Here’s to a new downtown tradition.
