2019 Fall Festival Report
The Second Annual Fall Festival took place this past Saturday, Sept. 28th. The weather cooperated offering up lots of sunshine and pleasant early fall temperatures. Rev. Erin said that she invoked ministerial privilege with the weather gods, and Ro Hall said that she recited some prayers for good weather. Whatever they did, it worked.
The festival could not have happened without the many congregants who volunteered to help with the event. Special recognition goes out to the other members of the Task Force: Jeff Chard, Doreen Markson, Nancy Bender, and Jerry Reed. Also, Linda Mackos and Jackie Leisos, past festival co-chairs, were available with advice and suggestions when asked. Barbara Linsley also distributed flyers to crafters in August. Members who helped with set up, the day of, and clean up included Jack Pendrak, Kim Bywater, Kimball Pierce, Jackie Leisos, Stephanie Markham, Doreen Markson, Ro Hall, Jared Thorp, Kasey Coleman, Marc Mario, Carol Cable, David Jones, David Hill, Denise Nepveux, Nancy Bender, and Debra Hagenbuch. Thank you all!
In addition, a special thank you goes out to the musicians who provided wonderful music throughout the day. Performers included SoulShine - Jeff Chard & Betsy LaPorte, Nook n Crannie - Matt Mielnick & Ann Carey, Vinyl-45 Duo - Ernie Marcello & Jeff Chard, and The Voices of Madison County vocal group. Thank you as well to Aaron and Melissa Shupp for the use of their canopy for the performers.
Total proceeds for the event were $715
