Quietside Festival: Despite the rainy weather, there were plenty of people who participated in the basket raffle and silent auction and many bought plants. Lemonade wasn’t so much in demand because of the cooler temperature. If you would like to purchase a bottle or two, it is in the refrigerator ($1 a jug). Many THANKS go to all who helped set up and tear down; donated items for the silent auction and basket raffle and plant booth; and for all those who worked before, after and during the fair; AND to those who bought raffle tickets, plants, lemonade and placed bids.
