Windham Considering Cancelling Summerfest After Citizens Realize Summer In Maine Is Fourteen Minutes Long

Committee meeting. Maine news from the Rumford MeteorWINDHAM – Windham Summerfest, the annual event scheduled this year for June 22, may be canceled due to a lack of volunteers, organizers said this week. According to Windham Parks and Recreation Director Brian Ross, the committee that oversees Summerfest has dwindled to about four or five members, far short of the 15 members it had two years ago. Ross is hoping an organizational meeting set for Monday, Feb. 11, will draw enough volunteers willing to sit on the organizing committee so the show can go on as planned. “We’re inviting anybody that’s interested, or a group that may have some interest helping out, they can send a representative,” Ross said. “We need help with fundraising, community booths, entertainment, the business expo. So we’re trying to reach out to the people in town to see if we can get some more interest in helping out.” If a sufficient number of volunteers don’t show up to the Feb. 11 meeting, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at Windham Town Hall, Ross said the event could be canceled.
