Hard Day.

bummed out
This was a really difficult day. The festival laid off four full time employees. One had been there 10 years. Another five years. (Both close friends.)

Marilyn and Jeff were suffering today -- it's hard to be the bosses and lay off people (especially people you care about).

My friends both cried -- so did I. It's hard to imagine the festival without them.

That's all I can manage today. More details tomorrow.

Was it a financial layoff? I am sorry. I hope the reason was indisputable for their sakes. It seems so unfair for such long term employees specially since you had to hire seasonal employees for your festival. Since Marilyn and Jeff are the bosses, was it their decision?

I am so sorry that had to happen. Financial issues?

Wow. Sorry for that.
