Our tractor drawing went digital this year! Well, for the actual drawing results anyway. We still drew every single ticket, leaving only the winner of the tractor for the last ticket. Our winners for both cash prizes, and the tractor are listed here:

Congratulations to all of our winners!
We are now accepting Square payments for our building rentals and Festival Vendor Payments! This is new to us, so be patient as we get it all figured out.
All new invoices will be sent via Square invoices. You will be able to make payments from home without having to wait to mail in a check. There is, however, a convenience fee for this service. A 3% fee will be added for all electronic payments. You do still have the option to mail in a check or money order so you do not have to pay this fee.
We are in the process of changing over invoices already sent out to the new system, so watch for those if you have a balance due!
Lots of new and exciting things are taking place with the Festival Building, and around town!
We have upgraded our electrical boxes around town that we use for the Monrovia Festival vendors.
We are working to upgrade the retention wall that hold up our parking lot on Main St. Also, the steps that go down the hill from the back of the parking lot have been upgraded.
We have been doing a lot of painting around the outside of our building. The picnic tables have been painted, as well as all of our parking bumpers. We have repaired doors that have long needed to be repaired, and we are going to be making upgrades to our meeting room as well.
We are excited to share our upgrades with you! Please stop by to see us during one of our regular monthly meetings. We are always looking for volunteers to join the committee and help with our community events. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the form on our contact page.
At tonight's monthly meeting, we had our elections. New board members have been appointed by our committee members! Congratulations to our new board! All will be sworn in at our November meeting.
