A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO A VERY SPECIAL LADY
Having been in on the San Pedro Lobster Festival from its beginning seven years ago, it is without a doubt one of the most challenging, rigorous, and fun events in San Pedro. Since its inception by few of us seven years ago, we managed to be creative, make do, stretch the limits, and fill in the blanks to make it all happen.
What many of us know and often forget to acknowledge is: The integral part of the San Pedro Lobster Festival is Rebecca Arceo. She does not get paid, she manages, somehow to make all the cogs fit the wheel, to orchestrate the best concerto written, to line up people, places and things that make the event fun for locals, families and tourists alike. She is battling 1,000 since that first year when she needed to figure out how to light the booths, how to get businesses interested, how to block off the street, how to clean up the mess and multitude of other jobs that no one but the committee knows about.
Anyone on the committee this year or since its inception seven years ago knows and feels this event could not have been done without leadership of Rebecca. Lobster hats off to you Rebecca. The five most important words in the English language are “you did a good job”. And you have been doing a great job for seven years. We all thank you for your love of San Pedro and your dedication all these years. We’ve known it and thought all of these many years. We’ve known it and thought all of these many years and simply just need you to know that we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
