Sweet Corn Festival coming up Sept. 2-5 in Millersport


In a little over a month from now the 63rd Sweet Corn Festival will be held on September 2 - 5 in Millersport. Much effort goes into the planning, preparation and execution of our area's largest volunteer fundraising project. Without the support of several hundred businesses, elected officials, community groups and our tolerant neighbors, the Millersport Lions Club would not be successful.

In these tough economic times, we encourage all of our loyal supporters, longtime attendees and dependable friends to continue to shop and purchase services and merchandise from those terrific businesses within the greater Buckeye Lake Area and the tri-county communities that continue to support us by purchasing advertisements, donating gift prizes, sponsoring contests, loaning equipment and just pitching in whenever we ask for help. They are always there for us, so let's help them through this recession.

Stop by Historic Lions Park and you will see many Lions busy getting ready for festival week. The various community organizations that operate food and game booths have already started making improvements to better serve our patrons. A fine example is the legendary Hebron Lions Club, famous for their hand cut fries, which have made significant improvements to their food service operation this summer. They are a small club that works very hard to raise significant funds to support so many community service projects for the Village of Hebron and the Lakewood School District. Make it a point to check out their new digs!

Thanks to everyone that are already making plans to join us for four fantastic days of the best value for summer fun…the 63rd Sweet Corn Festival.
