Rib Fest 2021 has been canceled due to Covid-19. Due to the toll Covid-19 has taken on our local businesses and restaurants and the changes we would have to make to Rib Fest to host a safe event, the Neighbor to Neighbor Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel Rib Fest again in 2021.  Our organization wants the community and our local businesses and restaurants to have time to heal from the effects of this global pandemic, and we encourage people to shop local and support the local businesses and restaurants throughout this recovery period.  Rib Fest 2022 is scheduled for Saturday, November 5, 2022. The event will be held at The Lodge at Leathem Smith.  Mark your calendar for this date.  We hope you will join us in 2022.

 

The 2020 Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to Lisa Musil in August.  Congratulations to Lisa!  We thank her for all her hard work and her dedication.
