Lakehead Goes to Guatemala

Over a year ago, Festival pledged to send one of our college/university clients to Antigua, Guatemala to build a house in conjuntion with From Houses to Homes. We made this announcement at the 2010 COCA Conference and shortly there after the Lakehead University Student Union (LUSU) was chosen as the winner.

I know it has been a long time since that first announcement but the representatives from LUSU have returned and have provided us pictures from their trip!

Pictures from their trip are available on the Festival Facebook Page and a big shout goes out to Mike and Neva on their incredible photography skills!

Everyone at Festival would like to sincerely and humbly thank Mike and Neva for both travelling to Guatemala, building the house and their incredibly kind words upon their return. This was an amazing cooperative venture and definitely something that Festival will do again.

If you'd like to know more about the LUSU trip, Houses to Homes or other examples of Festival's corporate citizenship feel free to email me at scotty@festival.net
