What a beautiful day it was for the 16th Annual Asher’s Chocolates Fall Fest! The sun was shining and the clouds added to the perfect scenery. Twist, and Mr. Jelly Belly, our friendly mascots, greeted everyone and posed for pictures. As people arrived, Greg Badger treated them to the sounds of an old time calliope. We had Wink and Dandy, the face painting clowns; who made so many kids (and adults) happy with their artwork. Dick Gustafson worked his magic for all the kids and parents with card tricks and more! Music by The Mighty Manatees filled the air with happy tunes as our guests (young and old) grooved to the music. All My Children provided a fun place for kids to do crafts and even our recycler, Sustainable Waste Solutions, were there! There were moon bounces, basketball toss, games, and raffles. The daughter of one of our employees was accepting donations for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to help fight Juvenile Diabetes and Team Alexis raised almost $400! We are thrilled to have had so many people visit us and join in the fun!
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for next year’s Fall Fest – it’s always the last Saturday in September!
