I'm sharing a Letter To The Editor that I submitted to the Waverly Newspaper this week about another successful Waverly Heritage Days weekend. It went way too fast and was a blast but with this heat, I'm kinda glad it was last weekend..... :-)
Here's the letter: ---------------------------------------------
While working with the Vic Ferrari & Boogie and The Yo-Yo'z concerts at Waverly Heritage Days this past weekend, I heard all kinds of comments regarding the shows.
One of the many positive stories/comments I heard was from a member of Boogie and The Yo-Yo'z following their amazing Saturday night concert who asked me to share this with the Waverly community.
A couple from Wisconsin attended the Boogie and The Yo-Yo'z show Saturday at Waverly Heritage Days & someone overheard them say they needed to get a hotel room later. The people that heard them say this told the couple they had an extra bedroom & they were more than welcome to use it. The Boogie band member said those kind of things rarely happen & it was a wonderful reflection of Waverly and Iowa. The same scenario happened a few years ago to a Vic Ferrari band member & his wife & others have offered rooms in the past.
A big thanks to this unknown couple for their kindness. It makes you proud to say you are from Waverly. That's just how it's done in Waverly & the band member was so impressed with this act of kindness.
Both Vic Ferrari & Boogie & The Yo-Yo'z complimented Waverly for the kindness and hospitality they are shown here. Both bands explored Waverly & the local businesses over the weekend while a Vic Ferrari member relaxed Saturday morning with "a beautiful walk around Waverly" before heading to their next gig.
The bands are very impressed with Waverly and we hear nothing but compliments. They love Waverly!
Thanks to everyone who attended Waverly Heritage Days events and concerts this year. It's a privilege to assist with Waverly Heritage Days & see all the fans having fun but it's also nice to live life in a community like Waverly the rest of the year.
