Here's the poster for this year's festival. We are adding more sponsors daily; three more today. We are also taking and getting donations for door prizes. Radim Schrieber has donated a set of his Firefly photo greeting cards. Still looking for a group (school, church/youth group, scouts, sportsmans club or VFD) who would like to sell hotdogs and sodas on Saturday as a fundraiser. We will supply the food, but need help cooking and selling. Whig Hill store will supply the food at cost. Contact Peggy if you want to help with this. The next meeting is next Wednesday, 5/22, here at BCR at 1:00. We are planning to firm-up the schedule and assign jobs for the event. Hope you can join us.
