To the editor:

Why is it that the people who are the least involved and the least informed are the first to complain? The 2001 Film Festival was very successful and received international recognition for the event and for Lake Tahoe. Many hundreds of hours were contributed by a totally volunteer base in order to create, finalize and implement the weekend. Casinos sponsored each of their venues, Wallace Theaters provided space, other local businesses held special events or fund-raisers. We do this because of dedication to the concept and our respect for Denise Sloan, executive director.

Annette, if you are not pleased with the format, content, or selection of theme, then put your actions where your criticism is. Volunteer, participate, get involved! Any help is appreciated all year round for a variety of tasks. Perhaps you should consider a thank-you to your fellow community members for their dedication to a terrific and well-organized special event.
