Readers Write – Thank You Versailles

On behalf of the Versailles Poultry Days Chairmen and Board of Directors, I would like to extend a sincere, “Thank You!” to the numerous volunteers that helped make the 2014 Poultry Days festival a success. I have been honored to be part of a special team, The Versailles Poultry Days Committee, these past nine years! I would especially like to thank this year’s committee: Brian Pearson, Brian Henry, Kevin Kissinger, Jeff Lyme, Dawn Luthman, Vicki Ruhe, Sharon Barga, Doug Groff, Brian Wood, Eric Stachler, Jeff Barga, Luke Subler, Nicole Lyme, Paige Slonkosky, Ron Gehret, Jodie Bohman, Alex Luthman, Brent Pepple, Keith Wuebker and Louie VonDuhn. This group epitomizes the volunteer spirit and cooperation that makes a great team!

I would also like to thank: Versailles Fire Department, Versailles EMS, Versailles Police Department, Village of Versailles Employees, Versailles School Custodians, and Versailles Board of Education for their outstanding continued support of the Poultry Days Festival. Because of the collective efforts put forth by so many individuals, Poultry Days is able to play a part in improving the quality of life for a better Versailles. The crown jewel of these efforts is Heritage Park. Heritage Park was developed and is maintained with proceeds from the annual Poultry Days festival.

I am very grateful for the tremendous cooperation and many contributions from local businesses and individuals that contribute to the planning and running of the festival.  This is another example of what makes Versailles such a great community in which to work and live!  Again, thanks to all of you and let’s continue to strive to make Versailles and Poultry Days better every year!
