President’s Message

Dear Friends,

The Art Fair was truly amazing.  Major congrats to Vi Daley, Lynn Smith and the whole team.  A huge thank you to all the volunteers who made it possible.  Without you, it wouldn’t have been the enormous success it was.  Also, a big thank you to all the Friends of the Fair.  You play such an important role in supporting our signature event.  Your donations are greatly appreciated.  Speaking of success, the Fair brought in $335,000 net.  This is the second highest amount we have ever earned.  First Sight sold out, setting a new record.  More artists than ever applied and, with the reputation of our Fair growing in stature, we expect even more next year.  Once again, the Old Town Triangle provided a great home for this fine art show.

Our Old Town Triangle is also home to many public tours.  And the Outreach Committee has our new walking tour mobile app up and ready to be downloaded making it easy for visitors to tour the unique architecture and learn about the history of Old Town.  Search for Old Town Triangle Tours in the Apple or Google app stores and start walking.

Now that the Fair’s is over,  the fun in Old Town will continue with  several neighborhood events for OTTA members – a family concert, a barbecue, and Oktoberfest.  Stay tuned for more details.  And if you’re not a member yet, become one soon and enjoy all these fun activities.

I hope everyone has been enjoying our beautiful summer.  There’s no place better than the Triangle this time of year.

 

Steve Weiss, President
