MANITO POPCORN FESTIVAL
The 2015 Festival is over.
Another year is in the history books!
What a great year it was. A little warm but a good year none the less. At least we did not get rained on.
This year we had many great volunteers. Students from Midwest Central were fantastic. Representing the History league, they did a tremendous job. Also the young people from Logan Nickerson's "The Like Minded Project" did an awesome job. Looking forward to working with them all again. (Trunk or Treat is coming up.)
I would also like to say a heart felt thanks to all those people who serve on the Popcorn Festival Committee. They have made my job so easy that I sometimes wonder just what I do.
Thank you-Thank You-Thank You
Talent Contest and Lip Sync Contest were great and enjoyed by all. Bonnie and Val do a great job!
What can I say about the Saturday Night show performed by Project Two Music. I have heard nothing but good comments about their show. A great group of very personable young people and so very talented. We have asked them to pencil us in tentatively for next year and will discuss having them return in 2016
Next year s celebration will be September 2, 3, and 4.
Our first meeting for the 2016 Popcorn Festival will be held on Monday, September 21 at 6:30 P.M. under the pavilion in Veteran's Park unless the weather is bad. Then we meet at the Village Hall. We would be glad to have you join us.
Of course it takes money to provide all the entertainment for the Popcorn Festival. We are looking for sponsors for some of our events for next year. The Festival Friends is on going. Please consider helping the committee by making your donation.
