Opinion: Dairy Days: a great event
Hard work, dedication paid off
Organizers of Basehor's Dairy Days festival can rest for now, knowing their work was worth the effort.
The June 2 festival, from most all accounts, was a grand success. Scores of people attended the festival on the grounds of Basehor-Linwood High School. Activities were structured for young and old alike. Inflatable games and face-painting were a hit with the youths; the older crowd found plenty of entertainment in the live music performances. "Basehor: A Musical" Part II entertained audiences with its story of the lives of Ephraim and Ruben Basehor.
"There was a great turnout, great weather and great vendors," said Melanie Morris, who headed the Dairy Days Planning Committee. "We just really look forward to next year and it's just a great way to pull the community together and have a good time."
But an event such as Dairy Days takes more than "great turnout, great weather and great vendors." It also takes dedicated volunteers, hours of planning, attention to details and the will to pull it all off. In this respect, Morris and her committee were "great."
And so, congratulations to the Dairy Days Planning Committee for a great event this year. We look forward to a bigger, better Dairy Days 2008.
