We had various donors but I didn’t see where they were advertised in brochures nor in the park. Sad

For those of you who do not receive a water bill, Spencer Lofton said this about the Wild Azalea Festival.

He said the Jasper News reported approximately 1,700 people in attendances.  The performances included Brown Akers and the Foster Jammers, Bullard Brother’s Band, Deviljays and Kapowski.

I had no idea White Springs had donors for the festival and it surprised me that the circulars of the events did not advertise the donors, which is something which should be done, not just in a letter but at the event as well.  The donations came from Nutrien, The Hamilton County Development Authority and Mittauer Engineering.  Chastain Jewelers of Lake City donated the sterling silver necklase and earring set for the raffle that went to Shauna Adams-Farries.  Instyle Formal Wear of Lake City donated a gift basket which was won by Nicole Hunter.  Bienville Plantation provided the Duck Race Grand Prize Winner, Sandra Craver, with a two-night stay for two in a cabin.Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center donated a pair of weekend passes to the Florida Folk Festival to the 2nd place winner, Eric Norman.  Central States Enterprises, LLC provided the 3rd place winner Jamie Swain with a $100 gift certificate.


It’s a shame that something was not advertised, especially when these donations are made it usually is considered an advertising expense (not a charitable one) and one where they wish their names shown.   Paige apparently doesn’t have that type of Expertise to know what is required.  Shame on you!
