Including all the full time chamber staff, we had several team lead- ers who volunteered 40 hours over a three day period. We had almost 350 volunteers over the three days and it was a wonderful event. We are always exhilarated and spent when Monday rolls around after the festival. I can’t begin to adequately thank the leadership team of the festival, you can help me thank them by acknowledging their commitment and supporting their businesses!
