This year’s event is being held this weekend, July 9-11. The River Fest Committee reaches out to different groups and organizations to assist with installing fencing, removing trash and manning ticket booths.

Queen Organizer Needed The 2011 celebration will mark the 20th Anniversary of what is known today as the Huron River Fest. In honor of the celebration, the Huron River Fest Committee thought it would be appropriate to bring back the Queen. In order to adequately do so, the committee is in need of an energetic, organized individual who truly agrees there should be a River Fest Queen T, to run this aspect of the festival with the support of the HRF committee. For more information, contact any of the committee members or interested individuals can log onto www.

and Recreation; Huron Band; Huron Chamber of Commerce; First Presbyterian Church; and members of the Huron Swim Team. This past year, the Huron Boat Basin received a donation of a new vinyl cover for the canopy over the stage at the amphitheater from the committee. “This donation was made to the Boat Basin facility as a way of saying ‘Thank You’ for the endless hours they donate to the festival weekend every year,” said Sue Fawcett, president of the Huron River Fest Committee. The metal structure and original cover for the canopy was purchased about 10 years ago by the Lion’s Club. The new cover has both the Lion’s Club logo and the new River Fest logo on it as a symbol of community. The $25,325 community payback does not reflect the income made by other local businesses and organizations during the festival weekend, such as charging for use of private parking lots, selling rotators, beer or other food items, or duck races and other planned activities that take place in conjunction with the reunion weekend. Fortunately for the River Fest Organization and the Huron Community, several sponsors of the festival weekend are sponsors in-trade. The sponsors in-trade frequently includes the radio stations, the newspapers and other service organizations. These groups make such a great commitment to the River Fest weekend that without these loyal sponsors in-trade assisting organization, the costs would be much greater for the weekend and there would be much less to pay the local groups and organizations that work during the weekend. “The opportunity to give back to the community would not be as great if it were not for our sponsors in-trade,” Fawcett said. The River Fest Committee is run by volunteers, therefore, all of the proceeds of the weekend are returned to the community in one way or another. Anyone interested in volunteering on this committee, or who has a group or organization looking to make a little extra money this summer, should go to

The parade starts at 11 a.m. on Saturday July 10 and the Huron Lions Club looks forward to seeing everyone there!

Kalahari Field Featured Ornaments Available The Huron Chamber of Commerce’s commemorative Christmas ornaments have become an integral part of local holiday traditions. With the first ornament depicting the Huron Lighthouse in 1990, these ornaments have chronicled local landmarks for two decades. All of Huron’s churches have been spotlighted, as well as city buildings and the famous Pied Piper ice cream stand. This year’s ornament features a full-color illustration of Kalahari Field at Huron Memorial Stadium, created by well-known area artist Bob Hilty. The Chamber has teamed up with the Huron Boosters to sell the ornaments as a club fund-raiser. They will be available at the Booster’s concession stand during this weekend’s River Fest. They are also available at the Chamber office, 509 Huron St.

BGSU Firelands Holds Groundbreaking for New Arboretum Facilities At 10 a.m. July 16, college and university representatives, members of the James H. McBride Arboretum Board, and Erie MetroParks officials will host a groundbreaking ceremony for a new entrance, parking area and accessible restroom, specifically designed for visitors of all ages to the McBride Arboretum. The new facilities will be located on the property adjacent to BGSU Firelands’ Boos Road entrance, and the ceremony is free and open to the public. Dr. William K. Balzer, dean of BGSU Firelands, will join Chris Redfern, former state representative for the 80th District; Thomas O. Roberts, arboretum board president, and Stephen Dice, executive director for Erie MetroParks; in turning over the first shovels of soil for the project. More convenient public access and restroom facilities were identified priorities in the strategic plan for

the McBride Arboretum that was approved by its board members in 2006. At the request of Redfern, funding for these critical enhancements to the McBride Arboretum was inserted in the 2007 capital budget approved by Gov. Ted Strickland. The project is designed to complement the current grounds and facilities at the arboretum and provide greater accessibility to all visitors. “These new facilities will draw more community members to this wonderful Arboretum. They will provide better accessibility to the beautiful trails and increased comfort for patrons of all ages. We are delighted that another successful college-community partnership brought about such wonderful results,” Balzer said. Named after the first dean of BGSU Firelands, the James H. McBride Arboretum, founded in 1984, covers more than 50 acres of the Firelands campus and includes an outstanding crab-apple collection, the William J. Parker Lake, the Deering Family Terrace, a woodland trail, a butterfly garden, and many other beautiful sites. For more information about the groundbreaking, contact Erie MetroParks at 419-625-7783.

Church Chat Rev.Roger’s Reflections BY REV. J.ROGER SKELLEYWATTS, PASTOR, HURON UNITED METHODIST CHURCH The wonderfully nurturing aspect of growing spiritually in the soil of a garden such as Huron UMC is that we’re surrounded by folks also growing their own spiritual fruit. So we can be encouraged by those on the same journey – some just starting, some walking alongside, some far, far ahead with experience to share. We can be students, peers and teachers, too. At the annual conference a couple weeks ago, our congregation was honored in several ways for your spiritual fruit, unexpectedly. On break from grueling business on one hot summer day, I was focused upon a most important mission — I believe it was a butter pecan ice cream mission that was calling me, as I recall — when a familiar voice beaconed to me. I turned to find a friendly face that I vaguely recognized, but couldn’t come up with a name. Ever had that problem out of context? It was the company representative for Olan Mills photo directories. “Come here! I wanta show you something!� She dragged me through the crowd to the vendors’ display, where she had her wares showcased. “Look there!� She pointed to the middle of the table and there was a copy of our photo directory. “Of all of the ones I did last year, yours was the best — I just had to show it off!� she gushed.

As I beamed with pride for all of you, I thought: “Anybody who knew the inside scoop knew that book took the spiritual fruit of patience with a capital “P.� Prior to the conference, I received a postcard for an “invitation only� lunch for those churches who had received a profession of faith during the previous year – churches that had been true to our mission of “Making and maturing disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world;� that is, the spiritual fruit of faithfulness so that new Christians could be born and born again. Then, without warning, I was trying to stay awake after lunch on a warm afternoon, sitting with 2,000 of my closest friends in Hoover Auditorium, trying to listen to another report when I sat up straight! Rev. Paul White, our director of Connectional Ministries was listing accomplishments and noted: “Of all of our 800 UM churches of East Ohio, the one which rose above all the rest was the Huron UMC, which gave over $3,000 to our relief efforts following the Haiti earthquake, more money per member that anyone!� (117 percent mission asking already.) How about that? The spiritual fruit of generosity, which I’ve experienced here now into our ninth year together more times and in more ways that I can count. And of course, last Sunday morning we recognized the many staff and volunteers who offer our LOGOS Ministry for children and youth among our membership and the Huron community outside. I don’t remember the exact year, but LOGOS must be close to celebrating its 30th season pretty soon.

Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery‌ “For you were called to freedom, brother and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence, but through love become slaves to one another. “For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself‌’ “If we live by the spirit, let us also be guided by the spirit.â€?
