No tickets will be sold after noon that day, so get yours now at the Boutique, Adopt for Life Center, or Quilters Quarters.  At the Boutique, they need volunteers for just about every day of the week, and especially someone to be on-call.

Cornfest Recap meeting

July 27

There will be a general meting on Saturday at 3 p.m. at Sweet Grace Restaurant, 37 Hollamon St., Camp Verde. The purpose of the meeting will be to recap the Cornfest, what worked, what didn't work and take comments and suggestions from the community to make next year even better. No matter how well planned an event is, there is always room for improvement. Last year we got rained out, this year the rain held off until the evening and only ruined our street dance (and no there is nothing we can do about the weather!). But we have a different idea for the dance for next year. We are determined to have a dance! So stop by and give us your comments.
