The 10TH ANNUAL Fairview on the Green festival has come to a close. This festival has truly become a labor of love. The Sponsors, the entertainment, the vendors and especially the volunteers that braved the high heat to provide exceptional level of service to the community, it was truly an honor to work with the Friends of Fairview throughout the last eight months of fundraising and planning. This year’s festival had more volunteers working than ever before. It was heartwarming to see the Reynolds students getting involved in their community. The list of Thank you’s is truly very long.

Darren Riordan, Keith Kudrna and Barbara Jones made up the core that really kept the festival moving toward its goals. To Ginell Cooper, Bailey Cooper and Chase Cooper not only did they have to put up with the constant meetings, the loss of Garage space and a stressed out father and husband, They all volunteered on the hottest day of the year helping us pull together a wonderful festival. To Francis Doo, The food was spectacular, your staff was phenomenal. To Laurie Kreamier who cooked over a roaring hot BBQ to make the best burgers, you have my admiration. Chad Olin, Kathy Kudrna, Cory Tewksbury, Valerie Tewksbury, Steve Kaufman, Gale Swanson, Corinna McGuire, Lorna Catania, Reynolds National Honor Society, Reynolds Water Polo, Reynolds Theater, Reynolds Boys Soccer and those teens that volunteered who were unaffiliated. My heartfelt thanks for being part of the largest community event in Fairview.

Thank you to everyone who braved the heat. We hope to see you at the 11th annual Fairview on the Green in 2017.
