The Fall Festival at Jamestown Elementary was a great community success.  We had lots of fun and raised some money.  Money will be spent wisely and carefully to benefit our students.

It was truly a community event.  I saw old friends sitting together visiting over a snow cone, new friends being made at the duck pond, and some great family time being spent.  Good natured bidding wars for projects and products produced by the students caused a smile now and then.  People were especially at the end when they won with the high bid. 

We had some celebrities visiting with us.  There were several elected officials visiting and campaigning.  Some members of the Mighty Laker Football team attended giving high fives to the youth league players.  I am sure that encouraged their dreams of someday wearing those jerseys.  The Louisville Cardinal was in attendance and students enjoyed having their pictures made with the critter.

A Colonial American gentleman chose to set up his overnight camp here on the school grounds.  While here he shared stories about his way of life.  He demonstrated the methods of making fire.  He shared some interesting facts with the students.   His campfire on the cool, crisp night made the outside area even more festive.

Extreme dodge ball was exciting and fun for all who played.  The toilet paper toss was great fun and caused lots of giggles.  Outside at the basketball goals students were sharpening  and showing off their skill.  Many students won soda at the soda pop throw by using their pitching arms to knock  the soda bottles off the boards.   There were so many things to do and see it is hard to list them all. 

There was lots of great food.  Snow cones, popcorn, pork chop sandwiches, hamburgers and hot dogs all cooked to perfection.  The cake walk was great and fun way to get that little extra dessert we all love.

It was my first ever Fall Festival here at Jamestown Elementary.  I am looking forward to the Spring Festival.
