Increased attendance at Cheese Festival

To the editor:

Thank you for covering the 16th Annual Cheese Heritage Festival in Wellington this past weekend. We had beautiful weather and increased attendance. I also wish to thank our tireless volunteers, sponsors, vendors, and everyone who stopped by to attend an event, compete, and buy food and raffle tickets. The proceeds go to Main Street Wellington for operating costs and services to the business district and community.

I’ll be posting many photos from the Cheese Heritage Festival on our Facebook page and website throughout the next few weeks, including lists of event and prize winners.

We offered a survey to gather suggestions on ways to make the event better. We appreciate feedback, but what would be even better would be more volunteers to help us create successful events. Would you consider giving us some time? The old adage, “Many hands make light work,” is certainly true. I hope to see people at our Friday night free concert series or the Back to School Business Training Seminar on July 25.
