A Submission…AW…Woodstocks Art Gallery

Oh my. Have you seen today’s Sentinel? On the front page, with a big headline we have, “Art Gallery to become part of national cereal box campaign.” Read the story… http://www.woodstocksentinelreview.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=1481840 I’ll wait…….The gallery is supported with our taxes. That support is offset somewhat by revenue from programs and sales at the gift shop. they will be GIVING AWAY program discounts, purchase discounts and movie discounts. That means any shortfall will be made up with …taxes. The gallery is giving away out tax dollars on boxes of Fruit Loops! This is crazy.Why are they doing this? According to the advisory board, Lord Cultural and four councillors the demand for kiddie programs is so over whelming that they need a new building. Now it turns out they’re so desperate for customers they have to give the programs and goodies away. If there was any demand they wouldn’t have to do promotional give aways.Here’s the best part. This really shows there’s a shortage of brains in the brain trust behind this sick joke. They are encouraging parents to buy, “Corn Pops, Mini-Wheats, Fruit Loops and Frosted Flakes.” These so called cereals are SUGAR COATED CANDY. Health experts and dieticians not to mention CBC Marketplace have warned parents to avoid this crap because it promotes obeisity and diabetes! Nice one folks. What do the experts know? Listen to the Woodstock Art Gallery Advisory Board and City Council. Fill the little darlin’s up with Fruit Loops and send ’em to the gallery. It’s a good thing.Oh and since cereal box coupons are becoming legal tender in Woodstock can I pay my taxes with Fruit Loops box tops next time?

    This is too funny. I especially like the part where Maria Ricker (of the Woodstock Art Gallery) says, “I’m excited about it. I like the uniqueness of the campaign. I always read the box while I’m eating my cereal.”

    Of course she’s excited. She’s eating Froot Loops. It’s called a sugar high sweetie.

    Right. Everybody I know reads the box when they’re eating their cereal. Does she expect anyone to take her seriously when she spouts nonsense like this?

    What are these people thinking and why is the Sentinel reporting this crap as front page news?

    It’s not reporting. It’s a press release dressed up to look like a news story.
