The Kiwanis Club of Galena will again offer caramel apple sundaes at the Galena Country Fair, Oct. 12-13.
In the Oct. 2, 2019 Galena Gazette, Kiwanis Club president Jay Dickerson talked about the importance of Country Fair. It benefits the club in many ways, providing funds for the two scholarships Kiwanis gives out every year.
“We’ve also replaced playground equipment in Galena, and we’re in the early stages of replacing the equipment at the Tot Lot. There are many other things we do in the community–a spring half marathon, the July 4 events and the Kiwanis peanut days. But our Country Fair efforts are organized by Theresa and Lew Riniker each year, and I don’t know what we’d do without them.”
Dickerson’s favorite memory from a past Country Fair was the year there was snow and no one seemed interested in ice cream sundaes.
“John Osmanski, Jr., and I came up with the idea of covering the popcorn with hot caramel sauce,” he said. “Now I need to have it every year.”
