This year we also came up with a TEAM Volunteer incentive for the weekend. If any TEAM can come up with a minimum of 10 teammates and one coach (or parent) and volunteer four hours in the parking lot (where we always need help), the festival will give your team $300 for new uniforms or supplies your group may need.
A couple facts that people should know is that the Potato & Corn Festival is self-sustaining and has never operated with Town budgeted money and that the does not charge us overtime during the weekend!!!!!
