Winterfest: Participation Required

“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they have the heart.”
-Elizabeth Andrew

I’ve heard many say recently that they want to see Winterfest and Settlers Day brought back to what they used to be, multi-day celebrations filled with fun and unique things to see and do. I have good news: this is entirely possible. The catch is that we can’t simply wait for other people to make it happen for us. We have to participate.

Winterfest planning is in full swing right now, and it’s time for the community to get involved in a big way. Many positions need to be filled and support is still required; however, volunteer participation continues to drop lower and lower. If we want to see these events grow, we have to be an intentional part of that growth. Sitting idly by and wishing for things is not an effective strategy.

The organizers’ meetings will continue to be at Deer Park Pizza Factory, November 14th, December 12th, and January 9th at 6pm.

In addition to needing helpers in the various aspects, vendors and sponsors are also important to making Winterfest the big draw to the greater Deer Park area.  Selling your art or creations, or simply contributing to the funding of the event can make all the difference.

Participate NOW by entering the sweatshirt design contest, and nominating someone to be Winterfest’s Honored Citizen.
