The Great Ball Bonanza


A fundraiser for International Homecoming Festival--The Great Ball Bonanza--was held last Tuesday night.  Four hundred numbered ping pong balls were dropped from the top of Salem Street, next to Camden National Bank, with the first one to the bottom bringing with it a prize of 100 gallons of fuel donated by VL Tammaro Oil.  The winner was Herm Gadway, with second and third place finishers Ava Croman and Martha Beckett each winning $25 cash.  Assisting with the fundraiser was Cassidy Carr, Sarah Henry, Madison Armstrong, Carlie Leighton, and Ava Croman, all pictured with festival committee members Laurel Perkins, Anthony Giard, Jayna Smith, and Matt Vinson, along with Baileyville's Octoberfest organizer Jamie Bohanon who also assisted in the event.
