Soul of 2nd St. Fest big success 

Dear Editor, 

On behalf of the Soul of 2nd Street Festival planning committee, I would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s event. The event was a huge success with 2,000-plus attendees over the two days of festivities. The outstanding support confirms that the people of Boyle County embrace our community’s shared history and diversity. 

I especially want to thank our sponsors for their generous donations. Sponsors included Farmers National Bank; Maple Tree Gallery; Wilma Brown; Goldie Financial Services; The Hub Coffee House & Café; Jane Barleycorn’s Market, Bistro & Bar; Perryville Lions Club; and Stith Funeral Home. Their generosity is a testament to the community support of this festival. 

I would also like to give a special thank you to the many volunteers who contributed to the event’s success. Without the help of volunteers this, or any of Danville-Boyle County’s treasured events, would not be possible. 

Again, thank you for supporting the Soul of 2nd Street Festival, and we look forward to seeing you in 2018. 

With sincere gratitude and appreciation, 

Soul of 2nd Street Planning Committee
