Johnny Appleseed Festival 2009

The Johnny Appleseed Festival ended this evening and I was sad that it did. We had a wonderful time the last two days. There are so many caring people out there and we met them all this weekend.
This is Floyd Gilmore and his family. They are related to Joey Gilmore. They come to every event they can to support us.
We also had the pleasure of a front row seat at the grand stand and saw all the bands. This is Rumors last night. We also saw The Nobody Band, Tribute, The Lisbon Chorus, and many others. It was a lot fun and a lot of good music.
This is Borderline, a country group that even played a Garth Brookes song in honor of Mike Williams.
We were lucky enough to have two volunteers this year that we can really depend on. Amy and Sarah Fraser come when we need them no matter what. We really appreciate you both. You are the best.
Clyde Brown a Salem City Councilman also stopped and paid us a visit. Like his son, Craig Brown, our County Recorder, he cares about the families of unsolved murders in this county and we appreciate his interest in us.
Our set up was pretty simple and a lot of people stopped and read the stories we had to tell. We also sold a lot of raffle tickets. Thank you again Joe and Cassidy for donating the tickets to us. Your generosity is exceptional.
Our next event is the Lisbon Ghost Walk on September 27 at 4pm. The cost if $5 a person and all the proceeds go toward helping us get our non profit status. The tour will consist of a walk around Lisbon that will include some ghostly tales and some history of the town as well. Please come out and join us.
