Thank you to the Rochester Cultural Council

Aug 29, 2019

To the Editor:

The Onset Bay Association and Friends of Onset Street Painting Festival would like to thank their supporters for the success of the Chalk-Full-O-Fun Festival, including the Rochester Cultural Council, a local agency that is part of the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. 

Second, many thanks to the environmental nonprofit groups who provided information, demonstrations and materials to share with the public: New England Coastal Wildlife Alliance, National Marine Life Center, and Wareham Land Trust.

A tip of the hat to Ms. Dion, Ms. Sharples and the Wareham High School Art Club for developing the blueprint for the 10' by 16' sea life mural that was recreated by festival-goers.  There were 209 registered artists who hailed from 6 states and 43 cities.

Gratitude goes out to the 15 crafters/vendors who contributed to the festival and sold their unique crafts. Also, a big thank you to the Wareham Free Public Library for the children's Story Walk and to Lt. Walter Correia and officers of the Wareham Police Department for barriers and security.

Much appreciation to King Richard's Faire, Water Wizz and the Edaville Entertainment Center for some fantastic prizes for the festival winners. And last, but certainly not least, a very special thanks to the 30 volunteers.
