Unrehearsed Day: August 2016′s Board Chair Address

Unrehearsed Day: August 2016′s Board Chair Address

By now most of you have seen the first two episodes of An Unrehearsed Day with Carly the Wanderer. Whether it be by the flip of a coin or suggestions from locals, an unrehearsed day in Ontario’s Highlands can unfold in a variety of ways. It is the unknown and unexpected moments that make our region special and memorable to our visitors. 

As Carly continues to wander in search of more unexpected moments, we hope you will be thinking about some of your visitors’ moments and their stories. Perhaps it was the exhilaration of a Freedom Finder experiencing the rush of class V rapids for the first time. The wonderment of a Creative Cruiser unearthing buried treasures or a Rustic Roamer’s new found friendship with a local. With a region as vast and unique as ours is, I know we have only just begun to scratch the surface of our story telling.

There’s a quote by Drake (yes, I’m a Drake fan) that goes “Sometimes it’s the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination.” While the Come Wander brand is aimed at the visitors to our region, I also see this as an opportunity to learn about each other. I know the next time I’m in Haliburton I will be doing a float down the Gull River.
