Thank you to Buchanan Carnival volunteers
Over the past year we have witnessed the best of “small town America” in action as Buchanan prepared to host the 68th annual Buchanan Community Carnival. We are proud to say this event is one of the longest continually running events in the Valley.
The town is blessed by the generous outpouring of the community towards the Buchanan Community Carnival. From beginning to end, residents, civic organizations, churches, local governments, sponsors, and volunteers from the community pooled their time, talents and resources together to host an event we all can be proud of. The Buchanan Community Carnival is not possible without their support.
During the course of the year, organizational meetings were held with former and new volunteers to ensure a smooth operation for this year’s Carnival. Committee chairpersons organized volunteers to operate each and every booth, volunteers cleaned and repaired kitchens, game stands, bathrooms and the Town Park before, during and after the event, ensuring the safety and enjoyment of our thousands of guests.
For nine days, dozens of volunteers donated more than 4,050 hours. We are extremely grateful to them. Despite the long stretch of heat, humidity and even three nights of rain, the high standard of quality set by volunteers for this year’s Carnival enabled us to host a family-oriented event which will live in the hearts of today’s children for years to come.
On behalf of the Town of Buchanan and myself, I wish to give a heartfelt “thank you” to each and every individual, group, business and sponsor for your contributions to this year’s event. We are humbled by your dedication and generosity – it has truly been a privilege to work with you. To the public who attended the Carnival over the course of nine days, thank you for your support.
Again, to our volunteers, thank you for the opportunity to work with you, and thank you for all of your efforts.
