Fall Into Fun!
That is the new slogan for our library festival on October 14. The Lancaster News graphics department has worked up a great logo for us and we should see the final draft on Saturday.
Saturday, July 15 at 11:30 at 521 BBQ. That's our next festival planning meeting. We hope to have dimensions of the event areas (children's, food, business, artists), a plan for what we are going to charge for booths, and hopefully some of the lists of potential vendors to hand out to the committees.
We have committee chairs set up. Each chair should find a couple more people to help them with their work. While each area is fairly small, it still can be a big job for one person to line up all the vendors for their area.
Which brings this to mind: If anyone would like to take over the children's craft vendor area, please email me. Currently I am chairing that, but I'm a bit worried about becoming over-extended. I have a list of area churches to contact. We'd like to invite the area churches to provide craft tables in the children's area. It would involve sending out letters to the churches explaining what we are looking for, and then signing up the ones that are interested.
This week the Steering Committee meets to begin work on the top-tier fundraising. Bryan and Stacey Vaughn will join us for that. We'll begin developing a list of potential donors, corporate and individual, and devising approaches for how to ask for donations.
I'll upload the logo once it's available. We are very excited about it and will go to the Indian Land Chamber meeting on July 25 to ask if they would like to donate money for us to get some shirts printed up. The sooner the better on the shirts. We can start selling them as soon as they are printed...they will be great advertising.
