Thanks for giving and sharing your thanksgiving

More and more walling friends from all over the world participate each year in our Canadian Thanksgiving dry stone festival.
To those of you who have made it a bit of a tradition now to attend these DSWAC festivals, I would like to again give my thanks. Your contributions are immensely appreciated.  Many of the projects we took on this year at our Festival of Stone would not have been completed and the whole energy of the festival would have been much diminished if those mentioned below (and many more)  had not made the sacrifice to come and participate. 
Thanks again to Chris Barclay and David Claman and Akira Inman and Andres Lemieux

  1. John,
    Thanks for organizing the spectacular 2012 event. I think everyone there enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. There was a lot of work done, great people, good food, entertainment and the colors of Autumn all around.

    I'd like to thank you and Mary, everyone involved in making it happen, our hosts, fellow instructors, fellow workers and friends, those who came anyway, neibhours, the public, musicians, cooks and the locals kindly involved with billeting.
    Thanks again,
    Pat McAfee
