Wyanet Summerfest preparations begin

WYANET — Wyanet Community Club has begun preparations for the 2013 Summerfest to be held July 11-13. The club will sponsor many forms of entertainment such as carnival rides and games, kiddie tractor pulls, nightly stage entertainment, a queen contest, a chain saw carving auction and a parade.

Cookouts at the Wyanet Locker will help raise funds to support the festival, but the club is seeking help and donations from the community. If you are able to make a donation, send it to the Wyanet Community Club, P.O. Box 27, Wyanet, IL 61379.

The Community Club is seeking input and is open to anyone who has questions or suggestions regarding the Summerfest. Meetings are 7 p.m. the second Wednesday of each month at the Wyanet VFW.
