Another WNY Dairy/Ag Festival has come and gone. Many more good memories added to the list. It is like a Western New York reunion and family get-together. So many people from so many towns.
Itís not perfect. Times change, farming has changed, but our prime concern when we started, and has continued over the past 26 years, is to make people aware and appreciative of Western New York and its valuable farmers. No farms, no food.
Thank you farmers!
The weekendís weather was fantastic. Our best in the last three years. Lots of wonderful comments, lots of visitors, from all over WNY. Thank you to the many, many devoted workers, the town, village, Community Papers of WNY, Faith Baptist members and area business sponsors for standing solidly behind us over the years. You make it happen!
Thank you to all the vendors, demonstrators, participants of various contests (see list of winners and photos in this weekís Journal) including rides to music, large food variety, new events, parade and fireworks. It was a fantastic year and you all helped make it happen.
And, most importantly, thank you Springville and all of Western New York, for making this yearís 26th WNY Dairy/Ag Festival a wonderful experience and successful event.
God Bless all of you.

2014 Festival Committee
