West Fest Thank-You!

The first West Fest avoided rain; so a good time was had by all. The Prairie Hills Duck Pond game was a success with lots of kids participating.  Not quite as popular as the dunk tank. Much thanks to Bill and Jan Minardi, Charley and Kristy Gamble, Peggy Parker, and, especially, to Sarah Kirk who was the main organizer of the event.
Ice Cream Social Thank-You!
Thanks to all who helped, and all those who attended, the PHNA Ice Cream Social at Pilgrim Park!
