The 2012 Cornfest was a huge success for the Youngsville community and the weather was perfect. The committee met yesterday to get all the winner lists, financials tallied, and reviewed the event for updates. There will be a list of basket raffle winners, car show-snowmobile-motorcycle winners, and other contest winners in next week's edition.
Please note - The grapevine that winds through Youngsville is whispering, 'no cornfest'. The Cornfest committee is not doing away with the Corn Festival, it may have some changes, it may be different in 2013 because of the Bicentennial Celebration, and it may have to be altered for the long awaited Streetscape Project. The committee has open arms for new and additional committee members and will be posting upcoming meetings.
