To Everyone involved in the Whitsunday Voices Festival,
Thank you everyone that played a role in facilitating the Whitsunday Voices Festival. I feel very privileged to have had our daughter be part of such an amazing event. The enthusiasm toward writing and thirst for reading since she came home is terrific.
Thanks Geraldine for giving up your time to travel to Mackay and for always making yourself so contactable and approachable. Leaving small children at home is always a juggling act. I sincerely appreciate all that you did.
Thanks Leanne for your co-ordination of the event and especially the care you showed towards CSDE children. You certainly had a great understanding of what our bush kids required having walked a mile in our shoes yourself, which made the few days away so much more than just an opportunity to meet authors.
To WAS and all your staff, a huge thanks. I was very impressed with your facilities and the hospitality that you showed towards our children and our family. Thanks for being so accommodating. Thank you also to the Winchester Foundation for the financial assistance that enabled these children to be a part of such a wonderful event. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity.
