It will be a big wind-up celebration which has something for every family member - storytelling, music, balloon sculptures, a cake walk, games for children, and lots more. And since it’s a party, of course there are refreshments! Come by and get a hot dog, some popcorn, and lemonade - all free - then enjoy the festivities. It’s our way of saying thanks for your support over the last century-plus."

     Featured performers include; Musician Ross Altman, Storyteller Jim Coogan, Jumping Flea Circus Ukulele Band and Theatre Americana.
