T-Shirt ordering for 2019 Hessler Street Fair is closed. Thank you everyone who ordered! Is it really over? Wow! We did it... and it was a tremendous success. So many people to thank for their dedication and work. It really takes a lot as we all know. It is hard to think it’s over. A day to set up, 2 days at the Fair and a clean-up day make it a four day event. I am just beginning to feel normal and I finally have my voice back. Most importantly, I just want to say thank you to everyone who pitched in and helped pull off an amazing street fair! Thank you, thank you...thank you !!!! Pat Holland, we thank you the most because you are the man who made it happen. We are all honored to be part of such a historical street fair and the feeling of community and love was overflowing. We were able to enjoy the fair because everyone played an important part and made things work. The lemonade booth is always a challenge and thanks to Spence stepping in and overseeing the machines and Ma’ati’s family stepping up. That was inspirational !! The lemonade is such a challenge to get volunteers and set it up, collect the money, run the volunteers for two days then put it to bed. We had too many volunteers to thank but each and every one of you was very much appreciated. Speaking of Ma’ati…I just hung up the phone with her daughter Cathy and she informed me there is still a long way to go but she is doing better and they have moved her from the H section to the G section. She is eating food now. Cathy said she is in a step down from the ICU. Anita Gray is Ma’ati’s name at the hospital. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and I mean that. There really are so many people to thank on the committee… it is just everyone! Starting out with the design of the t-shirts and seeing that through I want to thank Taraka the designer and Jay and Suzi. They also ran the web page and the Facebook page. The Facebook page has just been blowing up with pictures, it is great. I love Facebook for this reason. Jay reminds me in a great and hilarious way of Mr. Haney from the old Green Acres show because he has everything! He is Mr. Handy Man! Jay was also instrumental for set up/tear down. Bless Irene, she has the patience and history to deal with all the food and non-profit vendors, the fire department and making sure all of that is correct. That is a big job! Irene is also on the street all day Friday and Monday for set up and tear down. Very few people if ANY have dedicated more of their time and energy to the Hessler Street Fair than Irene. Irene, your passion is not unnoticed! Spence and Senta... is there a nicer couple on the planet! Your easy going attitude and willingness to step in and come up with solutions make you great people to be around. Your commitment to the fair is inspirational. Harmony Park and the Lemonade were a success in large part to you! I can’t talk about Harmony Park without talking about Hanna! Your ideas to make it fun, safe and special make Harmony Park what it is. It is a shame I rarely go there because it is one of the coolest parts of the fair. Thank you for all you do. Amy... WRUW does a professional and a fantastic job and we have you to thank for making that happen. Countless people have told me how much they enjoyed listening to them on the radio and how professional they sound. The broadcast was crystal clear. I really want to send a thank you to Jim and Filthy Rich to let them know how important they are to the fair and what a great job they did. Marci... another stellar year with the arts & crafts and non-profits. Hessler is what it is because in large part of the vendors and arts & crafts. The non-profits are super cool as well. All of it is cool and we have you to thank for getting them in there and making sure everyone is satisfied. It is a tough job and you do it well. Mark…Mr. Stage Manager! Every band commented on what a superb job you did getting the bands on and off the stage, getting them their water and dealing with t-shirts while we had them. This is another tough job because it is ALL DAY, ALL WEEKEND! You were also a huge help getting the biodegradable cups and lids and returning them AND being on the street for set up and tear down! Thanks again! Nate... our man Nate... Mr. Sanitation! Your job is also nonstop and it is dealing with a subject most don’t want to deal with – but it is one of the most important tasks of the weekend... trash removal and checking to make sure the bathrooms are stocked. You did an amazing job! You do your job with such a cool attitude as well. For a guy who has only been involved two years... you are at superstar status! Craig... our newest guy new to the committee... thank you for being so diligent getting the post cards and posters around. Today, more than ever, getting the word out is more and more difficult and you were great getting the word out, especially on the west side. Ron, Mathison, John V., Paul and Beth...THANK YOU for set up and tear down and returning the trucks! Your help is so important and so undervalued I can’t thank you enough. Set up and tear down is tough stuff and we did it! Thank goodness we had great weather for set and tear down. Courtney and Eric... these guys are invaluable!! They are the “Jacks of all trades.” Indispensable is another term. We will say a toast to them at our next meeting. Building the boardwalk and dealing with all the wood, hanging banners... I love these guys! D’Angelo ran the band parking lot. Again, big job and you just stand there all day but we NEED the spots, it’s an important job. Bill, Cecie, Kate, Andy, Kenny, Donna and Diane – They run HEADQUARTERS! T-shirts and Pop and do some directing! Once again, invaluable people doing some of the most important work. Anthony... we are all looking forward to the documentary. That is going to be exciting!! Andy, Bill and Pat, thank you for allowing me to be the Director for the second year in a row. Most of the committee I’m sure would like to stay involved if we do this again. There was tremendous energy this year. I understand the word HIATUS and if we take a break for a year or whatever I think we have a pretty dedicated staff and some resources have come forward to help us financially and with man power. I’m sure we will talk later. I just want to say thank you for the opportunity to try and heard this bunch of cats! The danger of thanking people is I am NO DOUBT leaving out some important people who made a contribution to the success of the fair. Beth is throwing the wrap up / pool party on Sunday, June 23rd. Please save the date. It is at 1:00 in the afternoon. Another email will go out about the party. When that email goes out we will ask you to RSVP so Beth has an idea how many people will be there. I am super proud of the Hessler Street Fair. I think we can all agree it was AMAZING…FANTASTIC... A HOME RUN! A lot of hours of all of our time went into this event. We should all be proud. Thanks again!!! Packy-
