Winter Carnival was a huge success

This year’s event received a lot of support from individuals and businesses in the community

I would like to thank the people who came out in support of this year’s Winter Carnival, everyone from the vendors who set up in winter weather to sell their products along with the high school leadership group to Story Time in the Park.

Thank you also to Hope MotorSports Group for building the giant toboggan run, Hope Performing Arts Community Theatre for entertaining the crowd with singing and dance numbers, the ladies from Envision Financial for “Their Random Act of Kindness” walking around the event giving out coffee cards, Ann, Judy and Brenda for manning the snowman cookie station, and the Hope Lions and Hope Towing for continuing to operate hayrides with Santa to end the activities for the day.

This year’s carnival has inspired me even more because the amount of support that was received during event planning from individuals and businesses in our small community, along with the financial help we received through prizes/tents/tables and chairs from local groups and businesses, was outstanding.

I can’t thank Sherry Farley enough, she was instrumental in helping me organize this event along with the hard work of Scott Medlock, Jim Lasser, James Talarico and Victor Smith. They all helped make this event a huge success.

For those of you who came out and enjoyed the afternoon I thank you.

For those of you who couldn’t make it, we hope to see you out next year.

Debbie Romano,

Hope
