Editor, Times-Union:

It is time to thank many people who worked to make the Mentone Egg Festival a huge success this year. It is a Mentone Chamber of Commerce-sponsored event and, this year, Tim Croy secured many donations from local and area people so we could make the festival even better. A list is on our Facebook page.

The Chamber Board members are Karen Francis, Krystal Lybarger, Anna Stiles, Cookie Gakstatter, Tim Croy, Nikki Norris, Shawn Fultz and Rita Simpson. Each one of our board members had their own events and helped with many new events as well.

Shawn Fultz and her family made the sets and produced “Family Feud.” It was so much fun and families are already waiting to do it next year.

A special thanks to Jim and the volunteers in our police department, Josh and the street department, the Four Way EMS and their volunteers and our Mentone Fire Department.

Thank you goes to Chris McClone and his electric crew.

Tim Croy took over placing vendors and set-ups. All of it went very well and we had wonderful vendors this year.

It was a great Egg Festival this year. We thank all of you who came to enjoy it and plans are already under way for next year.

Rita Price Simpson

Mentone Chamber of Commerce, President
