Sweet Corn Festival returns for its 65th year Aug. 31- Sept. 1

Editor:

In a few weeks the 65th Sweet Corn Festival will be held on August 31 - September 3 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, long-time 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.

Thanks to everyone that are already making plans to join us for four fantastic days of the best value for summer fun...the 65th Sweet Corn Festival.
