Nothing to do in Calhoun County? Try Grantsville, the county seat, this week!

 

Even though the Wood Festival doesn’t officially open until Thursday, the town is buzzing with activity. Saturday was clean up day, so trash is at a minimum and flowers have been planted by businesses. Some food booths are open, and other booths are being set up. Loud speaker systems are being tested, windows decorated, parking spaces filled, and restaurants are full at lunch time.

 

More activities are added each year. Check out the schedule in this paper and remember to thank the festival committee and other participants. They work year round and also manage Wayne Underwood Field. These people are all volunteers. No one is paid. The weeks before the festival, they are in town early and late, seven days a week. Be generous with your praise this week. They deserve it . . . and remember to thank the “retired” Wood Festival volunteers as you see them now enjoying it from the sidelines.

It started with them!

The following song was written by Karen Yoak and Joe Wilt and performed by the Wood Festival Chorus in the ’60s.

Come, come, come

To the Wood Festival

Cause it’s fun, fun, fun

At the Wood Festival

There’ll be singing and dancing

And majorettes prancing

To tunes that we love to hear.

 

So, let’s come, come, come

To the Wood Festival

Cause its fun, fun, fun

At the Wood Festival

You could soon fall in love

Becoming part of . . .

The Calhoun County Wood Festival

 

Aprons and bonnets are found

On ev’ry lady in town

Men in bow ties making eyes

At ladies with pies and goodies

For sale. So, let’s (back to the beginning).
