Thank you to all these folks!

Hello Similkameen Spotlight! I just picked up your latest edition to check out the stories for our upcoming play.

I was so thrilled to see Marilyn Huycke’s article regarding our sets and thankful for her recognition of the huge amount of work done by Martin Riel. He knows I appreciate him, but hearing it from others is so valuable. Thank you for printing it. I would be remiss if I didn’t add that he was graciously helped and supported by Grace Truesdell as our set painter. Grace didn’t know she was an Artist until she started painting sets for us three years ago. If you are familiar with her work on our sets, this will shock you because of the level of ability she achieves. Grace has been wonderful at capturing the look and feel of the set vision and has contributed a lot of hours to making the set a beautiful reality. And finally, Barb Fraser and her amazing team of volunteers have put together an unbelievable amount of authentic set props and pieces that finish off our set and make it a true masterpiece.

Thank you to all of these folks.

Sincerely,

Rhianfa Riel, director and grateful wife.
