APPLE BUTTER MAKIN’ DAYS
ABMD 2013 was a huge success. The weather even cooperated. We want to thank everyone that helped. We will not name anyone because I’m sure we would leave out some important people. It takes everyone to make it the great festival it has become. They said we had over 50,000 people here for the three days. The free shuttles that went up and down the streets were a huge success. The winner of the raffle drawing from the Chamber was Donna Pikert. She choose the $300 gift certificate from Bass Pro Shop. There are two other items that will be given away at the Annual Banquet. They are a computer tablet and 42” flat screen TV. Tickets for those can be purchased at the Chamber Office and Mid America Dental & Hearing Center. They are $3.00 each.
