2016 Church Festival Recap


Through lightning, thunder, high winds, and beating rain, the 2016 Fall Festival still made a profit of $7,650.62!

We would like to thank all the volunteers who contributed their time and energy to both festival nights.

We would like to extend special appreciation to Bob Faulkner, who has chaired the event all four years; to Bert Bathiany and Barry Petracco, who along with Bob gave countless hours organizing, hauling, setting up and constructing; to Brian Laake, who kept track of all the financial information; and to Sherri Spaulding, who took care of all the licensing and state forms.

It has been decided by council NOT to have an outdoor festival since we have not had any luck with the weather and very difficult to find volunteers. A committee will be set up to look at different fund raising events that can be held indoors.
