    Dear Magnolia,

    Last year, with a host of new volunteers and great support from local businesses, we hosted a fantastic Summerfest. And, with many of our core team returning, we're hoping for an even better weekend this year:
     
    Bigger parade, starting 10AM August 5th
    Our MCs are Ashley and Allen from WARM FM
    An expanded beer and wine garden featuring Elysian Brewing and premium wines
    Even more great vendors from Urban Craft Uprising
    Free kids activities- crafts, games, art, etc.
    Huge art show, now managed by MAX (Magnolia Art Experience)
    Sunday morning 5k/10k fun runs        
       

    The thing is, we need your help. On the person-power side, we're stretched to the gills, and could really use some community-minded folk to join our team. Whether it's slinging beers Saturday night, or helping manage our craft vendors, we could really use some extra hands. And, for those teens needing community service hours, we have plenty for you, too. So, if you can spare a couple of hours, or join a committee, we welcome new ideas and energy.

    If you can't help with labor, our other on-going need is contributions. As you may know, we almost had to cancel Summerfest (est. 1952) two years ago because of a lack of financing. Since then, we've stabilized the situation, but still rely on community and business donations for a substantial portion of our expenses. Any amount you can give is much appreciated, and is tax-deductible.
    For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Cinde Ennis (Cinde_Ennis@comcast.com), 
    and if you'd like to learn more about various volunteering needs, contact Jason Thibeaux (jason@magnoliachamber.org). To make a direct donation, you can drop off a check at Magnolia Mailbox, or visit our website: www.magnoliasummerfest.org.
    Thanks for your consideration and support!
