It was a night to cherish for two of our well known Stonebridge residents, Nancy Dyson and Dave Schindler, who won for their film entry’s at the 2016 Wasaga Film Festival Red Carpet Gala Awards, held April 30th, 2016, at the Rec Plex in Wasaga Beach.
Nancy won the Regional SGB Video Advertisement Category Award, sponsored by OHMJAM, for her light hearted video depicting a day at the local Stonebridge restaurant “Sunset Grill”. Nancy is an avid supporter of the Wasaga Film Festival and was the sponsor of the International General Category Platinum Award.
David’s first Regional SGB Music Video Category Award for the film “Livin the Life I Love” sponsored by Re/Max of Wasaga Beach Inc., was accepted by his very proud wife Pat Schindler. David, a multi-talented musician, is currently entertaining the crowds on Friday and Saturday evenings, at the new Strand restaurant in Collingwood. His catchy video accurately reflects the feelings many of us here in Stonebridge experience daily, as a result of a move from the big city to life at the beach.
Congratulations to both of these winners and a heartfelt thankyou to the many Stonebridge residents who attended the Wasaga Film Festival View and Vote Events and the Gala. As Gary Cerentola, Chair of the Wasaga Arts Council and Film Festival stated at the Video Advertisement View and Vote Event, there is a “Stonebridge Culture” alive and well in Wasaga Beach and it is something that he hopes the rest of the town will soon adopt. Well done Stonebridge!!!
