Linking Our Past with Our Present and Future
From our Committee

August 2018

Dear Stiftungsfest Friends:
                And just like that, Stiftungsfest 2018 comes to an end...

Stiftungsfest Committee and NYA Firefighters want to thank everyone for a great celebration. People came from all around, even some from other states to our small town celebration.

The Big Tent entertainment was great and well attended. Believe it or not, the Stiftungsfest board is already working on next year’s entertainment. The Squeezebox Band and Mitchell Hall and the Outlaws are returning for Stiftungsfest 2019! A huge Saturday crowd was the reason for the successful numbers with burger and beverage sales ahead of last year’s sales. Special thanks to the Plato Fire Department for helping with the Friday night water fights. The Fun Run, sheephead tournament, car show, church service, craft fair, coronation, pedal pull, carnival, kickball, and Bingo all had great participation. The men and women softball tournaments also went very well. Congratulations to our four new Stiftungsfest ambassadors. These representatives will be promoting our town and celebration throughout the next year.

Thanks to the near 300 volunteers that work a shift in the stands! This celebration is all possible because of the generous donations from our sponsors. Please support these local businesses!

Stiftungsfest is always the weekend before Labor Day weekend. For more info on Stiftungsfest, go to www.stiftungsfest.org. Thanks to all who attended this year’s celebration. Hope to see you again next year– August 23-25, 2019!

Thank you for a fun weekend!!! Hope you enjoyed everything! See you next year!
