Library benefit, Taste of the Carolinas are coming
Organizers of Sept. 29 fall festival at Sun City hope to raise $20,000
CHRIS MCGINN-The Charlotte Observer
Mark your calendars now for the second Fall into Fun Festival to benefit the Del Webb Library at Indian Land.
This communitywide event will be held at Sun City Carolina Lakes on Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a separate Taste of the Carolinas event beginning at 6 p.m.
Special guest entertainer Richard Simmons will be on hand, and the day will be capped with evening fireworks.
Last year's festival raised nearly $10,000 for the future library, and organizers hope to double that amount this year.
Karen Paulson, Lancaster County library board chairwoman, said the board would begin receiving bids for construction of the $2.2 million library in August. (kp: Actually I said we HOPE to be receiving bids by then)Construction should begin by year's end.
Festival planners include the Indian Land Rotary Club and a team of more than 30 community members. Lots of volunteers are still needed for the day of the event, and business and crafts vendors can set up booths at the festival.
Karen said they also need someone to lead the teen area of the festival and vendors to provide activities. Last year's provider of a rock-climbing wall and skate park is no longer in business. (kp: Actually the climbing wall was provided by JROTC. We hope to have that again this year. It's Estrada Extreme Sports, last year's provider of the skate park, that is no longer in business)
