Macca thanks Toronto Beatle Fans

I really wich I was able to go to Toronto to celebrate the Fabs, but alas I cannot attend.  Hopefully they make it a traveling event.  Sir Paul it seems also wishes that he could attend. 

Sir Paul McCartney has sent written greetings and thanks to Beatles fans in Toronto and to the organizers of the Toronto
Beatles Celebration. The Celebration will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Theatre at Exhibition Place in Toronto on September 16-17, 2006.

It features Beatle experts, educators, exhibitors, and performers, including the world’s best Beatles tribute band – 1964 The Tribute – as well as the largest collection of museum-quality Beatles memorabilia ever assembled in Canada.
    In a letter addressed, “Dear Beatles Fans,” the former Beatle writes: “I would like to welcome you to the inaugural Toronto Beatles Celebration, celebrating the 40th anniversary of our last Beatles concert in Toronto. I wish I could be there celebrating the legacy of the Beatles with you. Thank you for all your love and support.”

The final Toronto Beatles concert was held forty years ago tomorrow, on August 17, 1966. Goodwill Ambassador for the Adopt-A-Minefield Campaign to rid the world of landmines, Mr. McCartney is a passionate supporter of the cause, and appreciative of the selection of Adopt-A-Minefield and the Canadian Landmine Foundation as the charity of the Celebration.
    “We were stunned and touched by Paul’s wonderful letter,” said celebration spokesperson David Goyette. “To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that Mr. McCartney has publicly recognized a Beatle convention.  It is also the first time that a convention like ours has decided to help raise and donate funds to the landmines cause.”
    Said Scott Fairweather, President and CEO of the Canadian Landmine Foundation, “We rely on local efforts from Canadians to play our part in creating a world free of the suffering caused by landmines. This is the kind of commitment in action that truly makes a difference.”
