It was a scene of a winter wonderland that lasted well into the late afternoon at Timbergrove Manor Civic Club’s Annual SnowFest on Saturday, December 5, 2015 at Jaycee Park.
We heard the squeals and laughter of excited children running from bounce houses to train rides, from the balloon artist to face painters. There were the giggles and wide eyed expressions of absolute delight and wonder as the line formed for a once in a life time picture with Santa. There were white fields of glistening snow. Everyone stayed toasty with warm beverages. Scrumptious food was had by all, donut holes and kolaches – even Milk-Bone treats for the dogs.
By all accounts, it was a perfect 2015 SnowFest and the festival’s attendance was impressive. The crowd numbered up to 325 people. A sentiment shared by all, the event was an overwhelming success! Everyone, including our volunteers, left smiling – satisfied, happy and full of memories to last a life time.
We offer our most heartfelt and sincere thanks to our generous sponsor Carolyn Bryant with RE/MAX Metro at 281-723-9810. With Carolyn’s continued support over the years, the Civic Club has been able to expand and improve the Winter Festival year after year.
It is the volunteers of Timbergrove Manor that make every Civic Club event a success. Thank you to the volunteers who were there that day, working to make it all perfect … Bill Morfey, Carolyn Bryant, Chris Ochterbeck, Darlene Wayt, Jeff Wayt, Jennifer Vickers, Kenny Bryant, Kirk Guy, Lorraine Cherry, Paige Ochterbeck, Pete Davies.
