Northumberland Festival of the Arts (NFOTA) is a not-for-profit organization in Northumberland County. Many NFOTA volunteers live in Cobourg. "Resilience" was the theme of this year's festival, held from September 16 to October 2. A good portion of the 40 events were held in Cobourg, with the balance sprinkled throughout Northumberland County. This exciting festival showcased local music, visual arts and drama, plus offered opportunities to participate, to learn and to be inspired.
To help promote the festival, a trio of NFOTA volunteers recorded a music video in December of 2021 . Lynn C. Bilton, Christopher Cameron and Marie-Lynn Hammond had so much fun creating "Spread the Word" (which became the festival's theme song) that they choose "What Fun!" as the name for their group.

Most residents pay little attention to Council when they make operational decisions such as: which road to excavate for new services or when an old snow plough has to be replaced. Staff make these decisions and our voices are usually not needed.
However when decisions are made that really affect residents: a new sidewalk installation, or drastic changes to paid parking or beach restrictions - we, the public, must be consulted.
According to the Municipal Act Section 224 the Role of Council is to a) "represent the public" – so accordingly – we must not just be consulted but we must be taken seriously.
