Fall Festival set for Saturday

Sunday, September 11, 2011

CENTER POINT --The fifth Center Point Community Fall Festival on Saturday, will be on Main Street at the firehouse.

The event will start at 4:30 p.m., with a pulled pork dinner, including sides. The price of the meal is a free-will offering.

Other foods include ham and beans served over an open fire and homemade desserts. Separate donations will be accepted for both. Homemade ice cream by the Ashboro Church Ice Cream Social will be served.

The Jackson Township Band, under the direction of Matt Huber, will be at the festival. Louis Popejoy will also be performing, and additional entertainment will follow.

There will be a local crafters area under the tent to feature local crafting such as woodworking.

There will also be a Kids Corral ran by Glenda Cheeseman. It will include fun things for children such as prizes and face painting.

"We thought it would be a nice evening for people to get together -- visit and enjoy some entertainment," Treasurer Karen Stearley said. "We wanted to have a relaxed evening where the community can spend whatever they can afford."

Half of the proceeds from the festival will be used to support the fire department, and the other half is intended to go toward a civic project that would benefit the town.

All who have an antique, tractor or truck are welcome to show them off in the Cruise-In on Main Street. For more information on the Cruise-In, contact Rob Bell at 812-243-6503.
