THE SAVAGE FEST is now a memory. It was a perfect summer day: good food, music, lighthearted games and pony rides.
It's still too early to tell how much the Savage Community Association has earned from last week's fund-raiser, but the indicators look good.
Best of all, the event was a pleasure for everyone.
Special thanks to Myra Phelps who has the reputation of being such an efficient coordinator that she gets dragooned into service for the Savage Fest each year.
Due to her preparations -- and her graciousness -- everything ran smoothly.
In the early morning of the fair, as the vendors were busy setting up, Phelps rode around the booths in a green pedal car made of 55-gallon plastic drums.
She looked like she was having a ball.
The post-festival meeting of the Savage Community Association will entertain suggestions for next year's event, especially the use of volunteers. Watch this space for more news.
