The judges booth will be set up in front of the General Store, and lineup starts at 6 p.m. Entries are slow in coming in, and everyone who can get something together as a fl oat or lighted vehicle (cars, ATV's, even bicycles) is welcome to join in the fun and make this another successful event this year. The Business Cham- ber is sponsoring this event, and they know how the economy has affected a lot of businesses and organizations in this area, but are really hoping that the Christmas Spirit comes through and the parade will fi ll up--hate to disappoint the kids and Santa!!! Pick up your application at the Business Cham- ber offi ce and get it back to them by Friday, Dec, 5 in order to participate!! Many people have called and thought since the Chamber lost its building that some events would be cancelled, but the volunteers and community came through and it is now fully functional again and ready to take on the winter season. Let's show some com- munity spirit and join in all the fun!! Trophies and refreshments will be given out at Town Hall after the parade so if you can't be a part of the parade, come and watch it go by!!! Fall Harvest Festival and Community Round raised $2,000 for Food Bank By Maggie Ross The fi rst Fall Harvest Festival and Community Roundup was held on November 15, 2014 at Cov- enant Lutheran Church. With the help of a grant from Thrivent Lutheran Financial we were able to raise $2,000.00. It was an amazing success and will benefi t both the Quartzsite Food Bank and Isaiah 58. There were some great vendors with their hand crafted items for sale and other local organizations showcasing their talents and items. RV Lifestyles was gracious enough to loan us their popcorn machine and supplies so that we could give out free popcorn all day. Town Manager Skylor Miller was very brave Fall Harvest Festival huge success SEE ROUND UP PAGE 8
