Vondenkamp said the committee hasn’t finalized everything that will be available at Chingawassa Days, but many old favorites and some new activities are being discussed.
“We really didn’t know how the Tug of War would go over last year,” she said, “but it ended up being huge.”
In fact, she said, it was hard to get the crowds away from the Tug of War to do other activities.
“We are hoping that will come back,” she said.
In the next month, Vondenkamp said they will have a better idea of the activities returning and the new ones.
“The committee has a great idea for Friday night,” she said, “and it should be fun.”
Without giving away too much, she said the activity is based on a game show.
Meierhoff said the committee looks at ways to bring neighbors together for a weekend of celebration.
“We try to have something for all (with entertainment), but there are some things some folks don’t like and if we have a hard rock show Saturday, then maybe we will appeal to another group Friday and vice versa,” he said.
In addition to Vondenkamp and Meierhoff, other committee members include Mike Powers, chairman; Jandee Moore, vice-chair; Jessie Nickel, treasurer; and members Dave Crofoot, Darla Gore, Misty Hett, Clayton Garnica, Danny Sherbert, Christian Pedersen, Davey Hett and Margo Yates.
