Thank You Versailles!
On behalf of the Versailles Poultry Days Chairmen and Board of Directors, I would like to extend a huge thank you to all of the volunteers that assisted in making the 2015 Poultry Days festival a success. I have been fortunate to be a part of the Versailles Poultry Days Committee for many years and I would especially like to thank this year’s committee: Brian Henry, Kevin Kissinger, Jeff Lyme, Alex Luthman, Shawn Peters, Teresa Slonkosky, Dawn Luthman, Vicki Ruhe, Sharon Barga, Brian Wood, Jeff Barga, Luke Subler, Josh Brooks, Nicole Lyme, Paige Slonkosky, Ron Gehret, Brent Pepple, Emily Frey, Dereck Smith, Jodie Bohman, Eric Stachler and Louie VonDuhn. This group was willing and able to make things happen in 2015 and is eagerly looking forward to the 2016 festival. Thanks is not enough for me to express to them gratitude for all their hard work and dedication to the festival. They are truly an amazing group!
I would also like to thank: Versailles Fire Department, Versailles Emergency Medical Services, Versailles Police Department, Village of Versailles Employees, Versailles School Custodians, and Versailles Board of Education for their continued outstanding support of the Poultry Days Festival. Due to the efforts put forth by so many individuals, Poultry Days is able to play a part in improving the quality of life for a better Versailles. The crown jewel of these efforts is Heritage Park, which was developed by and is maintained with proceeds from the annual Poultry Days festival.
I am very grateful for the tremendous cooperation and generous contributions from local businesses and individuals that add to the planning and running of the festival. It takes a community to have a festival like ours. Whether it’s being there to show their support or to lend a hand, as always this community has demonstrated their commitment to another successful festival. This is just another example of what makes Versailles such a great community in which to work and call home! Again, thanks to all of you and let’s work as a community to make Versailles and Poultry Days better every year!
