May 31 Planning Meeting

With a little over 6 weeks to go before our 2nd Annual Festival, things are shaping up nicely. We have 7 confirmed music groups including: Front Porch Folk; The Hills and Rivers; Broke, Stranded & Ugly; Stoney and Friends; Joyful Noise and others.  We are thankful to report the St Anthony's Women's Guild will be selling strawberry shortcake during the early afternoon, and the Deck the Halls catering will be serving a beef sandwich in the later afternoon.  We have a new T-shirt design to vote on at the next meeting and will be ordering those the first week of June.  The Sponsor list is growing including: The Allegheny Valley Development, First United Bank of Fryburg, Dan and Jennifer Miller and Ken and Peggy Butler.  With these donations we hope to provide the sanitation facilities, glow sticks and T-shirts.

The latest stretch of warm weather has really helped to green-up the valley, but has concerned me that it may also bring about the emergence of fireflies.  I have noticed several of the dinural (daytime) varieties during the day this week, but have not seen any flashing yet.  I hope that this forecasted cool down for the next week will bring back more seasonal temperatures that will prevent any premature emergence of Fireflies.  We will keep you posted as soon as we start to notice activity.

I have been getting calls daily about accommodations.  We have 2 cabins still available and I am taking reservations for the tent and pop-up sites here on the grounds.  Other members of the PAFF and ADP are planning on camping in the Branch Creek area along the North Country Trail sites and the Kellettville Campgrounds.  

Our next planning meeting is scheduled for Saturday, May 31 at 4:00 PM, here at Black Caddis Ranch. Anyone interested in volunteering is welcome to attend.
