Am I the only one who thinks this is way cool?

Will my food ticket from the last festival work? I still have a No. 9 dollar on food.
:)

Will there be a get-together after?
I have to know these things so I can plan my work schedule accordingly.
But just keep that clown away from me. He may be a bad influence.

:mrgreen:

Banks, Chris,

Sorry, I have to work Sunday and can't bring the caboose down. I am planning on going to the August picnic though, and can bring one down then. Is the August event anything like this one as far as displays and things? Really wish I could make this festival. Very tired of working every weekend.

John

The august picnic isn't nearly as big but we still do draw a crowd that day to. Your more than welcome to bring your car(s) down that day too if you want. There usually is a couple of antique cars and trucks plus a couple of displays set up so you won't be alone.

Shana, your tickets won't be any good at this one since we aren't doing the food ourselves. It's all outside vendors this time around.

Hopefully I'll some of you today at the No.9. I'll be there most likely in the mine and Chris, Banks, and Adam will be outside doing the timber sets. It's going to be a great event so don't miss it!
