University Hills Plaza has hired a production company to host the festival and the Farmer’s Market that is coming up this summer.
EGG HUNT: Perhaps do coffee and bagels next time and a couple of food trucks so neighbors can stay a little longer and mingle more. Daryl has 3-4 sponsors @ $400-$500 per sponsor. All positive feedback from the Egg Hunt. From the sponsors as well as the dentist from Modern Dentistry.
