The Scottdale Fall Festival Committee gave the 2003 academic scholarship to Cara Petonic, daughter of David and Dorean Petonic. Congratulations to you from all in Scottdale.
The Festival Committee wants to thank everyone who attended the three days of activities. The baby contest, Raina Johnson was chairwoman, started out at Lido Cafe, 314 Porter Ave., on Friday. The cafe graciously offered its facility when there were weather changes — no one wanted the children to become sick because of rain. There were 35 contestants entered. This is a community activity that is worked on 10 months out of 12 to make it successful and none of it could be done without the countless volunteers’ efforts. A personal thanks to Marjorie Rocheck for all her work of obtaining gifts from donors for the baby contest. Think about it, all residents who want an even bigger, better event for 2004, call the moderator Rick Thomas and tell him to sign you up as a volunteer. Again, much thanks to everyone.
Readers, have a great fall week.
