Sherrie: We are home from another very good North Plains Garlic Festival!!! Except this year and for whatever reason was the best event ever and I mean ever that you folks have put on. The music was fantastic...now understand I was toooo busy to go and listen BUT my husband enjoyed the last band that played today in the afternoon...in fact we would like to know where they play as we would like to go and listen some time in the near future...

We had a terrific show Sherrie and thank you for all your hard work and all that you go thru to put this event together..

I assume that the clean up check will just be shredded, right?

thanks again...Val and Denny Smith.....Pony Tail Country
