Don’t forget to put the Cromwell Community Harvest Fest on your calendar of events. It will take place Friday, Sept. 7, with the Steak Fry and continue on Saturday with the regular schedule of events. Look for posters for the complete schedule of events.
Once again, the Cromwell Harvest Festival Parade will be held Saturday, Sept. 8, at 10:30 am. Entries of all types are welcome – tractors, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, horses, dogs, animals, walkers, riders, clowns, bands (marching and riding), musicians, businesses, hospitals, clinics, homes for the aging, organizations, schools, churches, clubs, political candidates and, of course, our area fire departments and ambulance services. Use your imagination and creativity and compete for one of three cash prizes donated by Northview Bank of Cromwell. We usually have about 40-plus entries in our parade, but our goal is more, and we want to see you out there! If you would like more information, contact Rob or Deb Switzer at 218-644-3780. Parade entry forms will be available at the registration/line-up area at the Cromwell School at 9:30 a.m.
