Fox Mountain Country Music Festival, July 2007 Newsletter
Newsletter: July 2, 2007
RE: 4th Annual Fox Mountain Country Music Festival, Aug. 2-5, 2007
6128 Aylesford Road, Nova Scotia, Canada, B0P 1C0
(Near Berwick, in the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Canada)
First of all I want to wish everyone a Belated Happy Canada Day. I cant help but
wonder how many of us truly realize how great it is to live in Canada and be a Canadian.
We are envied by many people from around the world for our strength, kindness, compassion
and hope. If you have traveled anywhere in the world, you can see this when you say you
are a Canadian. As I look out my window at this beautiful, sunny, day, drinking my first
morning coffee, I do realize how lucky I am.
I also just realized that exactly one month from today is opening day for the 4th Annual
Fox Mountain Country Music Festival. My how time flies! Four years ago I jumped in with
both feet & took on the role of music coordinator, putting together a country music
festival for the park. I also fell into the role of publicity chair and also that of
trying to get advertisers/sponsors. I wasnt exactly outside my comfort zone, but I
was committing myself to something new. How does one jump in head first & tackle
something new and possibly overwhelming? For me it goes something like this.
I had been involved with other smaller country music events over the years and I just
needed to think that this was an extension of those, only on a larger scale. Often we fall
into a trap of trying to please people and vice versa. We want their blessings but often
they offer opinions which sometimes differ from our own. No one knows more about my
project than I, so even though I try and listen to suggestions from others, I still listen
to my own head and heart and try not to get off track. I know when I do right & wrong,
adding & subtracting to the weight on my shoulders. It would be stupid of me to not
realize I will make mistakes & wrong decisions along the way. A good challenge can
only add to success. I have a good plan and outline in my head. If I veer off to the left
or right, when things dont go right, I refer back to my primary goal when things go
Sometimes I take a chance on something new & it can lead to pleasant surprises. The
bottom line is that sometimes you have to do something risky to end up with a great life
experience. I network on every occasion I can, hooking up with new people. Sometimes it is
the least obvious person in the group that turns out to be the most important person in
the group who can get me where I want to be. I do it because I love it, not because I want
people to love me. For the future, I think of the festival on a grand scale. If there are
roadblocks, Ill just take little steps, one at a time.
This year, I have put together what I feel is a good variety of talented performers.
Ive added a few different things from other years. Only when its over will I
know if my gut reactions and decisions have been the right ones for this year. I always
hope for a fine weekend, as it makes it much more pleasant for all involved. My part is
only a small portion of the overall picture. There are many people who make this
happen. The management and staff are looking forward to seeing you all again as much
as I am. Come and enjoy. Any information you need to know can be found at
If there is something that you are wondering about that is not on the website, dont
hesitate to call the park at 902 847 3747 or myself at 902 543 5053 and we will only be
too glad to answer your questions/concerns.
Until next time, my personal thought for today is: Do the best that you can at all times.
