Festival thanks from the Lions


The Millersport Lions Club Sweet Corn Festival was glorious. Four Beautiful Days - August 29 - Sept. 1. I say, and I know you will all agree, IT'S ABOUT TIME!

We had a fabulous Sweet Corn Festival this year. They should all be like this one was. We all know how bad the festival and weather has been for us the past three years. It has been very discouraging for some. But this year shined!

The weather couldn't have been better (except for our opening day, 90 plus degrees). There was not a drop of rain to be found this year. Mel Tillis was the best. What about Mark Wills and the Blackhawk helicopter? The pilots even stopped by the Corn Country Souvenir Store, and took home some T-shirts.The crowds were great, due to our extra exposure and advertising. It works! It's going to be hard to top this year's entertainment, but you know we'll try!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Millersport, the local community, all of the concessionaires, many other Lions Clubs, and the whole surrounding area! Without your help, excitement and hard work, we, the Millersport Lions, would not have been able to pull this festival off. This just shows how much you love the festival and want the festival to continue for at least another 61 years!

Let's Do It Again!

The Millersport Lions Club
