Celtic Music Interpretive Centre introduces new executive director

Celtic Music Interpretive Centre introduces new executive director
-by John Gillis

    It’s always a special treat to spend a Sunday afternoon at a ceilidh at the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre in Judique and I was fortunate to have that opportunity last Sunday.
    The weekly ceilidh’s run from 2:00 p.m – 5:00 p.m. year ’round, but the winter weather factor occasionally means cancellation.
    The fact the weather cooperated last Sunday meant for an excellent turnout, both to enjoy an afternoon of great music with fiddler Shelly Campbell (accompanied by Allan Dewar on piano), and to welcome and introduce the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre’s new executive director, Patti (MacDonald) David.
    Patti comes on board following in the footsteps of Cheryl Smith, who had served as the previous executive director for the past seven years.
    To say that Patti is excited by the opportunity to manage the Centre would be an understatement.
    She grew up just south of Judique, at Long Point, is a graduate of Judique Consolidated School and following a degree in Political Science and Government from Dalhousie University, she moved on to Windsor, Ontario, where for 17-plus years she was married, raised a family, and worked in various fields of employment; the bulk of which was in employee development and counseling, volunteer management, creative programming development, group facilitation, and marketing. She also completed a Certificate in Volunteer Management at St. Clair College.
