A special gathering was held Saturday evening, as artPontiac brought together as many volunteers as they could from the early days of their events.
Welcoming volunteers from the first artists’ studio tour in 1990 all the way through to the many events hosted this year, the congregation at the Jack Graham Community Centre in Bristol paid homage to all the help – and time – dedicated to the group and its success.
“We’re here to celebrate all of the volunteers that have given their free time to build this organization,” said Élaine Gaudet, one of the evening’s organizers. “They’ve worked tirelessly since the first tour in 1990, so why not publicly say we really appreciate everything they’ve done, from the bottom of our hearts.”
