Rotary spokesperson, Bill Hagborg, commented on how pleased their club was at being approached by Cecil’s to consider being involved. “Our Club is continually exploring new fundraising opportunities to meet our project funding commitments and welcomed John’s Lechlitner’s offer”, Hagborg said.
The celebration includes an Oktoberfest Beer Judging Contest, starting at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, with Oktoberfest entertainment that evening, a chance to win a Cecil’s catered lunch for up to 12, a Rotary Family pancake breakfast, 7-10 a.m. on Saturday morning, culminating with a Beer Dinner Saturday evening from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m.
