To: Annapolis Valley Apple Blossom Festival Board of Directors,
We, the undersigned, request a special meeting of the Annapolis Valley Apple Blossom Festival as per section 4 (B) of the festival bylaws, for the purpose of discussing re-instatement of the Queen Annapolisa Leadership Competition. We believe that without Queen Annapolisa, the festival is no longer fulfilling its mission of delivering events that reflect our past, present, and future. We believe there is a better way forward by keeping the traditional Queen Annapolisa Competition, and at the same time supporting a new and separate youth leadership program. We request this meeting be held at 7:00 pm, on or before October 14, 2023, with the appropriate 10 days public notice of time and location.
