If you have not yet volunteered to help with the 41st annual Fox Valley Folk Festival this coming Labor Day Weekend, you are too late. It's not that they have filled all the volunteer positions (if only), but that flood damage to Island Park has forced the cancellation of this year's event. A huge bummer, but next year's will be better than ever, and you have time to sign up to help in 2018. In the mean time, you can help by sharing this article on Facebook. We thank you.
