combining with the some other events? Cultural Event, and Strawberry Festival? sit down and try to work something out

considering to have the farmers market open even next year, if they are willing

looking for funding to help this group, police and fire costs add up; maybe we wouldn't need as many or could we put some money aside to pay for this
