VETERANS HARVEST FESTIVAL Set for Nov 1

This year, instead of the Stew Stomp, we are having the Inaugural Veterans Harvest Festival which we are extremely excited about!  The festival is Saturday, November 1st, and will begin at 8AM and will run until 3PM.  We will have arts and crafts, a Veterans Brunch, the Veterans Parade, and a Veterans program.  Arts and Crafts vendors along with Civic Groups are asked to be a part of the festival.  Registration forms may be picked up at the Chamber of Commerce or one can call 773-3921 to have one mailed.   We will also have a 5K Color Run, sponsored by the Fireman’s Association.  The festival will also have entertainment and an auction.  The auction will benefit Winston Strong.  For any merchant wishing to donate, please contact the Chamber of Commerce and ask for Linda Skelton or Frankie Sullivan.  We also would like the vendors to donate an item for our auction.  The only food to be sold will be from Civic Groups, i.e. church groups, school groups, etc.  Please contact the office for a registration form and booth information.  Electricity can be provided for an extra $15.  Please specify, on the registration form, that electricity needs to be provided.  We are excited about this year’s event and hope that everyone turns out and participates.  Only through participation, sponsorship and donations can we make this festival and Veterans program a success.  We would like to personally thank all the merchants, civic groups and vendors for your participation!
