Volunteers make Alpine Days a hit
October 3, 2008 · Updated 1:22 AM
Once again, I am amazed that we were able to pull it off. I would
dearly like to thank the committee members who gave so much of their time to
put on this huge event:
Cindy Wall, for doing all of the publicity,
Frank Smith and Sue Beauvais, for the first-class music lineup, and
Sue's additional support as committee secretary,
Tim Smith, for his support, barricades and for doing the posters and
Gail Lawrence, for her can-do attitude and being the hospitality chair,
Becky Kitz, for her support as treasurer,
Donna Hart, for the very hard task of recruiting vendors,
Dave Moyes, for creating a grand parade,
Chuck and Dixi Smith, for all of their hard work collecting litter
and manning the rest rooms,
Craig Watchie, for the great opening ceremonies and teen dance,
manning the lights and electrical and for being the all-around fix-it and
handyman, and Sharon and George Wyrsch, who not only treated us to an
amazing fireworks show and built a wonderful float, but who also lent moral
support to our committee throughout the year.
Many more people and organizations went out of their way to help
us put on this event. I would like to recognize the committee members
who came to meetings, gave their time and lived and breathed Alpine Days for
the last 12 months. If these people had not given so much, we would not have
had such a successful festival.
We will be getting ready for Alpine Days' 31st year in the weeks
to come. If you enjoyed the event and would like to be part of next
year's festival, please join our team. We would like to invite everyone to
our wrap-up meeting on the 28th of August. We will be discussing ways
to improve the festival and making plans for the next year.

Thank you everyone who helped with Alpine Days 2000!
