After considerable delay, angst and gnashing of teeth – I am extremely pleased to present the theme and logo for the 2010 Troy Strawberry Festival. I’ve made no secret of my struggles to come up with a broadly appealing theme. I have been working closely with Angie Evers of Forever Design and she has come up with this beautiful design.
I have several people to thank in addition to Angie for the design. My wife Becky has helped kick around a variety of ideas and all of you have her to thank for my not bringing forward something really horrific. Jim Stubbs, while he should have been paying attention to my board presentation, sketched the original version of the strawberry which I have used as a mental model in my discussions with Angie.
Becky and I both are chided for being professional volunteers. For a variety of reasons, we both have invested ourselves in community efforts. I have of course been involved more on the periphery of the Strawberry Festival and the Festival of Nations. We both have been active in the local soccer organizations. And of course, most any activity in which our kids were interested we both either led or participated as parent volunteers.
Combining these two passions is an ideal scenario.
