“In 2013, when the Board decided to establish an award to recognize individuals and organizations who had a made a significant contribution to the Festival, Tom and Sandra Perrault were among the first to be considered,” said Festival president Tom Lussier. “As original recipients of our ‘Special Friend of the Festival’ award, Tom and Sandra hold a special place in the history of this organization,” he added.
Dr. Tom was always present at Festival events and contributed generously to every aspect of the Festival. Everyone associated with the Festival was saddened to learn of his passing. Our 2022 Program Book honors his memory.
