SOUTH FORK—The time for celebrations is drawing closer as South Fork sends out the invites and gets ready to throw a party for the ages. The town has spent the last several months preparing for their first 25th anniversary celebration which will take place on May 19. The South Fork Community Center has received a makeover, the town has collected all of the party goods needed and now it’s time to just get down to business.
On May 19 at 5 p.m. the doors to the community center will open and guests from around town and surrounding communities are welcome to join in the fun and live entertainment. Food for the event will be catered by the Malt Shoppe in partnership with the town, and live music and adult beverages will be served by the South Fork Music Association. According to town staff the night is sure to be a blast for the entire family and everyone is invited to come and join in the celebration.
Town Trustee and 25th Anniversary Celebration Committee planner Kris Steffens has been working hard with her group of volunteers to make sure this year will be one to remember in South Fork. The May 19 celebration is focused on celebrating with the community of South Fork and neighboring towns before the busy season hits the region. “We wanted something just for the locals before things get busy so we planned for our celebrations to kick off before our guests come to stay for the summer,” said Steffens.
The event will also feature a bonfire outside, horseshoe competitions and door prizes provided by local businesses. The South Fork Music Association will be collecting donations for their youth music program which helps supply musical instruments to students throughout the Valley. All proceeds will go towards helping youth music programs throughout the year.
In addition to the events on May 19, South Fork has a series of plans for the coming summer months. During Memorial Day weekend, business owners and residents are invited to help spruce up the town and de-clutter closets. The Krazy Days event will take place on May 27 from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. The town will be providing stakes, signs and balloons to participants to help draw people to rummage sales throughout town. Steffens stated that the town would like to make this an annual event for the town in order to help promote community partnerships while cleaning up the clutter around town.
Steffens continued by explaining that they hope to offer this event not only annually, but twice a year on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend, depending on the turnout. Signs, balloons and stakes can be picked up at the visitor center on May 25, free of charge. Those that do not have a location to set up their goods can do so at the visitor center parking lot. Come out and join in the fun; clean up the closet and get ready for summer with the town of South Fork.
