YANKEETOWN SEAFOOD FESTIVAL WEEKEND
November 19, 2010 08:03AM
HI EVERYONE, IT'S JUST GRACIE

THIS IS MY FAVORITE WEEKEND, WHEN 80% OF THE COMMUNITY, CHURCHES, SCHOOLS, LODGES, BUSINESSES, AND HOMES JOIN IN THE CELEBRATION, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. THE RUMMAGE SALES AND YARDS SALES THIS WEEKEND COVER A LOT OF AREA, "ONE PERSON'S TRASH IS ANOTHER PERSON'S TREASURE" FITS APPROPRIATELY, BECAUSE YOU WILL FIND SOME BARGAINS EVERYWHERE YOU STOP. BUT TRAFFIC WILL BE AN ISSUE, SO PLEASE PUT YOUR PATIENCE IN YOUR POCKET EVERY TIME YOU GO OUT FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AND IT MAY BE A LITTLE OUT OF THE WAY, BUT TRY USING C40A TO GET YOU WHERE YOU ARE GOING, BUT DON'T SPEED BECAUSE IT ISN'T WORTH THE TICKET THAT MAY BE WAITING AROUND THE BUSH.

SUNRISE OUTPOST WILL BE SETTING UP A BOOTH AT THE FESTIVAL, FRANK IS COOKING UP A FEW OF HIS FAVORITES, "BREAKFAST SANDWICHES, SMOKED SAUSAGE AND BISCUITS AND GRAVY, BRATS, DOGS, FRIED SHRIMP,BURGERS". WE WILL CHANGE THE HOURS ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AND JUST BE OPEN AT THE RESTAURANT FROM 5PM TIL 9PM,

THE LIBRARY IS HAVING A TERRIFIC BOOKS SALE, VERY INEXPENSIVE, AND THE WOMAN'S CLUB NEXT DOOR TO THE LIBRARY WILL HAVE THE THRIFT SHOP OPEN AND ALSO HAVE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH BEING SERVED ON SATURDAY.

THERE ARE SOME NEW VENDORS AND REGULAR VENDORS AT THE FESTIVAL. LOTS OF ARTS, CRAFTS, AND FUN, FUN, FUN. THEN ON SATURDAY AT 5PM THE DOORS TO THE IZAAK WALTON LODGE WILL OPEN AND YANKEETOWN WILL CELEBRATE IT'S 85TH BIRTHDAY WITH FOOD AND ENTERTAINMENT, I'M HOPING THAT PEOPLE WHO KNOW THE HISTORY OF THE TOWN AND THE LODGE WILL ATTEND AND SHARE SOME OF THOSE VERY SAME STORIES THAT MR. KNOTTS SENDS TO ANDY, AND ANDY SHARES WITH US. BOOKS ARE GREAT BUT PEOPLE ARE MUCH MORE HISTORICAL AND ENTERTAINING IN THEIR STORYTELLING. KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK, MR. KNOTTS AND ANDY. WE ENJOY ALL OF THOSE STORIES SO MUCH.

BE CAREFUL THIS WEEKEND BUT HAVE FUN.
