Another Molasses Festival is over. Life for the volunteers is returning to normal.

 

The Chronicle expresses its appreciation to those who have worked for a year to plan an event that would bring guests to our county and fun to our people.

 

Even though the last day was very wet, some parade participants from out of town said they had a great time and absolutely love the people here.

 

The Calhoun Middle/High School band made sure they were represented, as they played from the bus to keep their instruments dry. The dedicated majorettes were drenched, but still did their routines.

 

Students were very attentive as they visited the Living History exhibit of the 19th Virginia Cavalry, Co. A, Moccasin Rangers. Many questions were asked, ranging from “What is that stuff you eat?” to “Is your gun heavy?” The Rangers were involved in a spirited corn hole competition during the long rainy afternoon.

 

Arnoldsburg Volunteer Fire Dept. also answered questions about its equipment. One young boy learned about the different purposes of the trucks.

 

Little children were enjoying the rides and the playground area. Senior citizens, who had made up the volunteer force in former years, found seats on the porch where they could watch the crowds and visit with neighbors.

 

Rain will not stop our small community festivals. It is a way to raise funds and still provide a good time.

 

The best part is watching a younger generation assume the responsibility. We will survive when new leaders are being trained, but also encouraged and supported by the rest of us.

 

Thanks again to all who made it possible.
