This is the Place!

As treasurer of the Non-profit that runs the clubs my children enjoy, I saw the need to raise operating expenses. So I cooked up a fundraiser at This is the Place Heritage park, one night about 3:00am. Six weeks later found us at the park putting on a Family Festival.
Tea Parties with square dancing for the girls.

Vendor Booths

Sword fights and tug of war for the boys.

Pulled pork, roasted corn on the cob and homemade fries for dinner.

A carnival for all. Cousins enjoying the cake walk!

Followed by entertainment. I got to give away the door prizes!

We had about 600 people attend the Family Festival and raised some much needed cash. I'll do about a 100 thing differently next year, now that we've done it once, but I think it was a great success. Huge thanks to my kids who helped at every turn, Becca, my right hand woman that day and Steve who's always my #1 man!
