I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support, efforts, cooperation, contribution, patience and time given to our Psychic and Wellness Fair held yesterday at the Orillia Star of Hope Spiritualist Church. It was a long day especially for those who stayed and attended the service and we were all pretty tired when we finally got home and were able to relax and put our feet up.
It takes a great deal of effort to put on this event from the idea, the promotion, signage, arranging the mediums, prep work on BIOS, the record sheet, the setting up of the booths, tables and chairs, organizing the layout, the flow the food and drink, AND all that has to be done prior to the event start time of 10 am. Our special thanx to everyone who shared a part in all that work. And afterwards it all has to be taken apart and cleaned up. Our thanx to you, we could not have even open the doors without that. Tracey please send this to Steve and his son John. Cindy please thank your John for us as well. Then there is the event itself!
Wow! In spite of the rainy weather, and other impacts we prevailed and managed to make it a successful day all round. We also need to have a special “thank you” to the Mediums, Healer Practitioners, and sales folks to making the day successful. Their contribution means so much not only to our church but to the promotion of Spiritualism in general. There were many folks who walked in off the street and just wanted to know what Readings, Healings, Mediums, and all this “stuff” meant. I’m sure they thought there were crystal balls and other things happening. These same folks learned about us and what we believe in. Many had their eyes opened for the first time.
Rev. Gina, maybe you could forward this email to Mediums, Healers and sales folks so they are not left out. Without their contribution we could not have done this and been able to spread the word. For those who gave a reading, they will tell their friends and Spiritualism will continue to grow in peoples hearts.
For the remainder of volunteers who dismantled everything and put things away, cleaned, timed, organized, administered, fed, and contributed so much to making this a success, I just want to add my own personal “thanx” for giving up your day for US. Time is a major ingredient in this day and age, worth many dollars per hour. Many of the volunteers also had a reading and/or a healing when things slowed down, our gratitude for helping out the with those contributions as well.
Everyone I spoke to or looked at during the day wore a smile or had nothing but praise for the event. I’m sure if it hadn’t rained we would have had a larger turnout.
We won’t have another large event like this for several months so it will give us all a chance to rest up and get prepared for the next event.
If you have suggestions for improving this event please forward to the undersigned under a different subject title and we will take your ideas under consideration.
In addition, Rev. Carol Ann Carter was the inspirational speaker for the evening service and also gave messages and did an outstanding and sincere job.
Once again…. Thank you all for making the day a huge success. Thanx!
