Thanks You to Everyone Who Supported the New Melle Festival

What a weekend! So much fun and excitement! Amazing donors, sponsors and partners; incredible volunteers and staff; plus an incredibly generous and creative community all came together to support the 2019 New Melle Festival!  New Melle Sports and Recreation sends a huge thank you to everyone for your support and participation. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Thanks to your generosity we made a substantial donation of canned goods to the New Melle Food Pantry from Thursday night admissions. We had a great turn out for our first-ever “Gizzard Run”, an awesome parade, and three very successful days of entertainment and activities. 

We also had a very dedicated team of volunteers who helped plan this year’s event, and we look forward to growing that committee and exploring other creative ideas as we plan ahead for next year. If you have ideas or suggestions, and want to have a hand in shaping plans for next year, we invite you to participate as a member of the festival planning committee and/or event volunteer.

New Melle has a rich history of community-focused volunteerism that has continued for generation after generation, and which is largely is responsible for the facilities and youth sports programs at NMSR that have long-played an integral part in the quality of life that we all, as New Melle area residents, enjoy. We cannot thank you enough! Your amazing, on-going support is sincerely appreciated.
