Greenbank decision was arrogant, disrespectful | Letter

Festival truly is a community event | Letter

  • Aug 5, 2015 at 9:00PM

I want to express my most sincere appreciation for the numerous volunteers who made the 2015 Coupeville Arts and Crafts Festival a success. The Coupeville Festival Association has promoted and hosted the annual Coupeville Arts and Crafts Festival for 51 years. The CFA is a non-profit, all- volunteer organization consisting of 23 standing committees and 250 plus volunteers. There is no paid staff. All non-operational proceeds go into the Coupeville area in the form of project grants and scholarships. In December 2014, those annual grants and scholarships totaled $815,000.
