    The Excelsior Hose Co. #1 is sorry to announce the canceling of the annual Fall Festival this year due to weather conditions which destroyed much of the local farm crops. The Fall Festival, which we have run for the past 60 years (more than 55 of them by past member Walt O’Dell) is only possible with the generous donations by our local farmers who donate most of the produce we give away. We feel that it would be insensitive of us to approach the local farmers for donations of their produce after suffering so much. We hope they have a better year in 2012 and hope to see everyone at next year’s Fall Festival, scheduled for Nov. 14 and 15, 2012. Thank you. Heather Gardner On behalf of Excelsior Hose Co.
