                    Caroline Summerfest is
                    not possible without YOU!
                    Thank you!
                    The 20th Annual Caroline Summerfest was
                    a tremendous success. We would like to
                    thank our volunteers who worked hundreds
                    of hours before, during and after the festival.
                    We can’t say enough about our corporate
                    sponsors who we know dug a little deeper in
                    their budgets this year to make sure that our local
                    families had the best Summerfest ever. We thank you
                    for your commitment. We know we couldn’t do it without you!
