Fall Festival 2016 Report

2016 Fall Festival Financial Update December 2016

The Fall Festival Leadership Team is pleased to announce the financial results for the 2016 A Country Affair Fall Festival which was held on Saturday, November 12.

This year’s festival was a tremendous success as the net profit after expenses was $24,731.49! This is one of the highest totals in the 22-year history of the festival, and it is the result of the generosity of many local businesses and organizations, church members, adult Sunday School classes, staff, and volunteers.

It takes an entire community to plan and execute a successful church festival.

We received 319 Silent Auction donations with 80 representing business or organization donations and the remaining coming from our generous church members.

93 vendors were on site displaying their crafts and products for more than 1100 visitors to purchase.

87 area high school youth from five high schools volunteered on Friday evening or Saturday to assist the many church members working in the various festival areas.

Seven scouting groups and three Fort Bend Boys Choirs (all groups that meet in our church) staffed the 10 game booths in the Carnival Midway area.

Festival parking was coordinated by 18 adult District Scout leaders, plus the festival committee chair.

Numerous guests were fed in The Tea Room, Festival Café and Aunt Hattie’s Baked Goods throughout the beautiful, sunny day.

We truly appreciate the outstanding support of this year’s festival. Please mark your calendar for Saturday, November 11, 2017 and plan to volunteer to make the 23rd annual even festival an even bigger success!
