Hello Marysville and welcome to “The Berry Patch.”

This week I would like to acknowledge Police Chief Rick Smith and the Officers of the Marysville Police Department. Putting on the Marysville Strawberry Festival takes a lot of strategical planning and could not be done, in the best interests of the city of Marysville, without the total cooperation and assistance from the Marysville Police Department. For all the years of service to our community, and to the Marysville Strawberry Festival, we thank you and wish the officers and staff of the MPD “good and safe days.”

On Thursday, Oct. 25, Maryfest would like to invite the Marysville business community and residents to an Open House in their new offices located at 1218 First St. We would like to take this opportunity to provide you with information on what it takes to produce the June event and how you can become involved, both as a member and volunteer. For those of you who are not familiar with the history of the Strawberry Festival, we will provide you with some background so that you are aware of the processes taken to get to where we are today. Our 2017-18 Royalty will be there, as will Jammer’s for pictures with the kids. The theme for the 2018-19 Strawberry Festival will be announced and Board members and Event Directors will be on hand to answer questions and give information on Festival events. The Open House will take place from 5-8 p.m. with light refreshments being served. We would like to encourage anyone interested in this great community event to stop by and learn more about Maryfest Inc., and the Strawberry Festival. For more information please call our office at 360-659-7664.

If you have any questions, concerns or ideas on how we can better improve or change existing events or even add events to the Strawberry Festival Calendar of Events, we want to hear from you. Your input is vital to the continued success of your community Festival. Your ideas are of value to us and we want and need your input to help us make your community Festival bigger and better than before. Thank you, in advance, for your support.
