VillageFest & Volunteers

Posted by Bonnie Limbird

VillageFest was a great success for it’s 23rd year! There were so many things to see and do for all the ages!

Congratulations to former Mayor Laura Wassmer, former City Clerk Joyce Hagen Mundy, and Mely Ballard of Mely’s Yogurt & Ice Cream shop in Corinth Square for their Community Spirit Awards!

Thank you to ALL of the City of Prairie Village staff, administrative office, public works, police officers, and the fire department, for spending their holiday with us, too!! Some, but not all, who were spotted: Chief Schwartzkopf, Major Roberson, City Administrator Wes Jordan, Deputy City Administrator Jamie Robichaud (and spouse!), Asst. City Administrator Alley Porter (and spouse!), City Clerk Adam Geffert (and family!), and Detective Houchen!

Thank you to our local elected officials for joining, including Congressional District 3 House Representative Sharice Davids, Kansas House Representatives Jerry Stogsdill, Riu Xu, and Stephanie Clayton, County Commissioner Becky Fast, and Prairie Village Councilors Herring, J. Nelson, R. Nelson, Poling, Myers, Morehead, and McFadden.

Tucker Poling, one of your Ward 3 Councilors, has a great group photo on his Facebook page if you have access:

If you missed this year’s VillageFest, be sure to mark your calendar for July 4, 2020! There is truly something for everyone! My own kiddo has missed the last three because sleep-away camp conflicts with it, but here’s a #FlashbackFriday to one of many years of Father/Daughter projects at VillageFest:

Chris swears she hammered his thumb shortly after this.

Would you Volunteer?

My official canvass starts tomorrow! I’d love your help for a 2-hour shift walking the neighborhoods of Prairie Village Ward 3! You can even walk your own neighborhood if you’d like!

Click HERE for many, many options available to choose from that fit your schedule. Saturdays, Sundays and evenings!

We’ll walk in pairs, so don’t be worried about doing anything alone (unless you’re a pro and you want to!)  Contact me with questions. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Take care and reach out if you have any questions or concerns,
