Thanks to all who participated in the MHNA Street Fair 2017!
If you were able to attend, you already know what a perfect weather day we had on Saturday, June 3rd. Bright sun, temperature in the 70s, and a light breeze made for a wonderful day for everybody involved!
We deeply appreciate the efforts of all the volunteers who came out to help us with set-up, take-down, and everything in between. Ours is a volunteer organization, and volunteerism was showcased front and center that day.
Thanks, also, to this year’s sponsors. A total of twelve individuals and business organizations stepped up to donate toward sponsorship this year. Their support is critical to our success.
