Oktoberfest a huge success

Reports indicate that the Chamber of Commerce’s Oktoberfest was a smashing success. The people in my office could not offer enough compliments about the entire celebration. Linda Schubert said the food was delicious, the band was excellent, and the fireworks were incredible. The fireworks display lasted for 40 minutes and people are saying it was the best they have ever seen. Thank you, Sandy Yeager, and all the folks of the chamber for a great fall festival.Grand Valley High School HomecomingMark your calendars for Friday, Oct. 22.
