“A committee of about 15 people meet four to six times prior to the festival. We put people in charge to make it a success and better each year .... The help we have from my committee is fantastic. If it wasn’t for them and the volunteers, it wouldn’t happen. It’s wonderful that this small community can pull it together,” Walterman points out.
“We’ve been very successful. We have great attendance, and we’ve been doing this for 20 years. We usually serve more than 300 dinners on Saturday and equal to that on Sunday,” he recalls.
Proceeds go toward the upkeep of the community building and other projects. “We also make donations to the fire department.”
