A reminder: On Mon. evening, Dec. 2, Folk Festival Committee President David O'Dell appeared before Glenville's City Council, asking for permission to hold next summer's festival at the regular time Ñ the third Thursday of June. That's Thurs., June 19 through Sun., June 22.
So, you Belles of the Past can place that date on your calendar; then, "God willing and if the Creeks don't rise," you can revisit the fest in your pioneer dresses and enjoy the many festivities that you didn't have time to experience in years past.
I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all of you 2013 Belles, Belles of the Past, folk musicians, square dance callers, Ron and Lynn Kemper (the bird I.D. folks), Patty Cooper and Becky Baldwin (Historical Society re-enactors), all of you local and distant volunteers, and visitors to our annual Folk Festival a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
We editors are hoping that the 2014 folk culture weekend will be a great extravaganza and joy to all who attend it.
