To the Editor
On behalf of the Greater Cashiers Area Merchants Association we would like to thank everyone who contributed to the 2011 Cashiers Valley Leaf Festival. The Festival, held on Oct.7-9 once again brought thousands of visitors and tourists to the Valley and was a resounding success in every way.
Numerous volunteers, local attendees and their guests, highly talented artists, vendors, musicians and performers as well as local businesses, media and restaurants all contributed to the festival’s phenomenal attendance figures and success for participants. The unique Cashiers Village Green and Commons provided an unequaled Festival headquarters venue. Members of the Glenville Community Development Club and the Sapphire Resort added their own special flavor to the festival activities enhancing the heightened level of festival interest while earning rave reviews from attendees and their participants.
No event in the scale of this Leaf Festival can be accomplished without the generosity of those who make our financial commitment possible. A very special thank you is owed to all of our sponsors.
