2021 Homecoming Festival Aug. 6-7-8 CANCELLED
2021 Homecoming CANCELLED
The 2021 Deckerville Homecoming summer festival which had been scheduled for Aug. 6-7-8 has been canceled.
The decision was made earlier this spring, in great part, due to the pandemic. Even though the recent easing of some mask and group gathering restrictions, a number of questions remain, and there are other factors involved in this decision. For the Homecoming Committee, it would be a daunting task in just a few weeks to attempt to put on this festival, an event that usually takes many months to plan and requires a significant financial investment.
Frankly, our committee members are few with only about six active, not getting any younger and time available to plan this summer is questionable.
If any events normally held during Homecoming weekend are conducted this year, it will be the responsibility of the service organizations to plan, promote and hold such events.
The Homecoming Committee will meet this fall to begin planning for the 2022 festival to be held August 5-6-7 (the first full weekend of August). The Committee is always looking for volunteers and ideas to improve the festival.
Have a safe summer!
2022 Meeting dates will be announced in the upcoming months.
An initial meeting will be held this fall; time and date to be announced. All are welcome to attend. Volunteers are badly needed!
Bechler's Food Booths are a popular destination for festival visitors.
