Float decorating went well with the help of the parade staff, Cory Peters, and LaGene Ackers.
Riders on the float this year were Nan Elsbecker, Dorothy Lee, Delores Seykora, Cory Peters, Jo Wolfgram, Corrine Talley. Those passing out candy and walking were Nancy McGregor, Ginny Ruppe and my granddaughter, Simone and her friend, Ryan.
What fun we had with golf carts both on Friday and Saturday. Thanks to our drivers Jo Wolfgram, Corrine Talley, Gloria and Bob Baker, Ginny Ruppe, Kay Schuster, Mary Overlee-Olson, Tom Schmitt, and Jim and Nan Elsbecker. Also a special thanks to Cindy Rau for getting her friends to help us out when we desperately needed it, Kathy Gunderson, Denise and Bruce Born, and Russ and Jan Bauwer, they were so needed.
CulturFest was a huge success for all, with lots of fun, kids and entertainment. Thanks to all those who helped: Cory Peters, Gloria Baker, LaGene Ackers, Corrine Talley and Leann Boyd.
Remember if you get a new volunteer to join our organization, you will receive a $5 gift card from HyVee as a thank you.
