Golden insight

All citizens and merchants are invited to offer feedback on the events and locations this year of Golden City Days.

With the Golden City Days committee wrap-up meeting in the coming weeks, all citizens and merchants are invited to offer feedback on the events and locations this year, as well as suggestions for improving the parade route and events in the future.

The committee is always striving to build on the Golden City Days weekend by adding new events (outhouse races, mini bocce tournament, white elephant sale), but a small organizing committee cannot do it alone. They need more help.

The members of this committee begin planning for the weekend festival in January and spend hundreds of hours of their time trying to do their best to please everyone.

It needs groups and volunteers to suggest new events (children’s games, logger sports) and come forward to offer their help in organizing and hosting these events, and it truly appreciates those groups and volunteers who came forward to make the 2013 weekend festival a successful event.

Constructive comments and suggestions may be emailed to GoldenCityDays@hotmail.com. Feedback will be reviewed and discussed by the committee and will aid them in making decisions for future GCD festivals.
