Once again Montage represented well at Toronto’s Luminato Festival for the third year in a row.
As volunteers (and as Ambassadors of Montage) the group helped to energize and inform art lovers at the countless venues and interactive installations. Some of the group handed out maps and information packages to the visitors others corralled guests at the free lunch time concerts at David Pecaut Square and got to sample some of the truck food fancies as part of Feed The Six.
Each year that we have taken part, Saskia Rinkoff has led the process and even offered her time to do some training at our Yonge Street location. Volunteer recognition goes a long way, so it was extra special that Montage had the opportunity to express their own appreciation to Saskia at the volunteer’s party.
“Dear Saskia- we couldn’t have asked for better leadership than you’ve given us these past few years! We want to express our deepest gratitude for giving us these opportunities to be part of such a wonderful and inclusive community, for seeing our strengths and abilities and for giving us access to meaningful experiences. Thank you for believing in us!! We truly appreciate your commitment and dedication to the festival and to all of us volunteers. Each year we look forward to volunteering again BECAUSE of You!! We are so proud to be a part of your team. You are a gift full of kindness, enthusiasm and positive energy– You are simply dynamite!!!”
