Kiwanis Music Festival Highlights Concert From, Gary Morton, Executive Director of the Kiwanis Music Festival

“Hi everyone, Well, I can not begin to express how thrilled I am at the results of the Highlights Concert. It was indeed the Best of the Best we have had so far. I was happy with the running time, backstage organization, theatrical presentation, scholarship presentations And the performances were spectacular. To be given the honour of presenting this concert every year is a very special privilege that I and all the Board of Directors genuinely cherish. I can't possibly thank everyone who contributed to this evening but I must single out one person. Marlene Morton, yeah that one, is an unbelievable contributor to my life. The Highlights Concert preparation time is a particularly stressful period for us both and I just don't contribute anything to our home life, so she carries all that as well. A truly amazing woman. Thank you, Marlene. Jamie Johnson (Kiwanis Club of Ottawa) has once again amassed a huge collection of photos that look incredible. Jamie I can't thank you enough. This is what Jamie sent me today. http://www2.ottawakiwanis.org/2009/2009-05-15kmf/index.html, http://www.ottawakiwanismusicfestival.com
