Kay Macfarlane

It was with a great deal of sadness that I learned at the weekend of the passing of Kay Macfarlane, one of the founders of WestFest and accomplished local artist.

Kay, along with Liz Broumley, was the driving force in getting WestFest started and established.

Following a career in social work, Kay put her huge energies into her art and community activities. I think Kay is summed up by her own comment about herself:

“I love being creative and making things. I am a fidget and cannot sit still having to do something all the time.”

We’ll all miss Kay and my thoughts are with her family at this sad time.
