Another incredible Filomi Days celebration has come and gone and frankly, we’re amazed.
We know there must have been an army of unheralded volunteers who made the event happen.
From the opening parade to the fireworks on the final day, everything seemed to go off without a hitch.
OK, that sound many of you hear is the behind-the-hand-snickers of the people responsible for Filomi Days.
Sure, we’d be less than intelligent to believe for a single moment that nothing went wrong, but the point is we didn’t see anything happen, nor did we hear of anything that went awry.
Folks mingled and talked and laughed and simply had a good time.
And that’s the beauty of the job the Filomi Days people and their volunteers did.
The only things that marred an otherwise perfect weekend — not including the weather — were the inconsiderate litterbugs who, for some reason, were unable to locate the many trash containers set about the two parks.
But even that mess was quickly cleaned and by midday Monday, there was not a single trace of the strewn mess the slobs left in their wake.
We say well done.
Well done to the organizers and the many people who stepped up to make sure everyone had a blast.
We didn’t hear about any nasty fights, any acts of crazy drunkenness or other childish behaviour that seems to be present at so many of these events.
There’s one more thing we didn’t hear, so let us be among the first: Thank you.
