Deltaville Heritage Day chair Kris Scherrer issued the following statement on Monday of this week:
“What an ominous start to the Deltaville Community Association (DCA) Heritage Day on Saturday, June 30. I couldn’t believe my eyes from the damage of the wind storm the night before.
“Sadly, some vendors lost tents and left, and some stayed. Fortunately there was no real damage to anything or anyone. We all dusted off and kept on going.
“Many thanks to to all who help make this a successful event for the community. Bob Walker, Lew Grimm and Mike Hurd were great help in set-up, parade control, and cleanup.
“The DCA food booth takes a lot of preparation and work on that day. We wouldn’t be able to do it without everyone’s help, especially Billy and Marsha Norton, Jill Davis, Mike Hurd, Bob Scherrer, Jeff Bliemel, Jerry and Lynne McMurtrie, Kelly Thomas, Karin Gorin, Bev and Gail Butler, Charlie Moracco, Carolyn Schmalenberger, Bev Hart and Johanna Langer. Forgive me if I forgot anyone.
“Our food booth is a vital fundraiser for the DCA. We thank J&W Seafood and Deltaville Market for their kind donations. And everyone’s support to us is very appreciated. Thank you Evelyn Turner and Bob Mannel for your help with the DCA tent.
“The heat did not deter our pet parade and children’s parade. And crab races were again a crowd favorite.
“Thanks to the band ‘Positive Mental Attitude’ for performing. Peyton and Tom rock! They were perfect for our venue.
“The Deltaville Community Association thanks everyone for your help and contribution to help make ‘your’ day a success,” concluded Scherrer.
