Anyone who hasn’t heard the Giant Puppets built by volunteers and staff at the Wenatchee Valley Museum and cultural Center won an Award for the “Most Original Specialty Unit” at the Apple Blossom Festival Grand Parade! Bill Rietvelt recently added it all up and found that over 600 volunteer hours were logged on the project so far – "we couldn’t have done it without all the wonderful volunteers!" Hey, Bill, just to let you know, several times I forgot to sign in… so add some more hours to that…hahaha. N0, seriously… really. Bill, says they are hoping to get the puppets out to other parades and events plus they plan to exhibit them in the Museum’s Gold Gallery at the end of July, with a reception in August in honor of all the volunteers! Alright, I can’t wait for the party to start. He was so gracious in his recent letter to the volunteers saying of the Wenatchee Valley Museum’s Giant Puppets that: "The Puppet Project was the “brainchild” of artist Martha Flores. Production of the resulting giant puppets was coordinated by Martha, the Museum’s Exhibit Coordinator - Bill Rietveldt and his wife – Cindy." It was a joy and a pleasure Bill, for Martha, myself and all the volunteers who put in those 600 hours… thanks to you and the WVMCC for letting us have this opportunity to be part of such a great project that garnered so much positive attention to our community, the Museum and the Grand Parade. It was so cool that it was covered during the production phase of the project by AP, the Wall Street Journal and Stars and Stripes.

Just to add for Bill and everybody involved, I will be making a disc of all the photos I took from start to finish... I will get that to you soon Bill. And, for anypone interested in viewing video of the project there are several youtube videos available just go to youtube and search 56DAUT for all the videos.
