PAGE 10 HOGANSVnJ HOME NEWS -JULY 26, 2001 Old Thmers Football Game Set for Town If the planners for this year's Hummingbird Festival in Hogansville get their way the boom of cannon and the cheers for the heroes of yesterday are going to be added to the annual fes- tival already chock full of rides, games and the best in Southern crafts and food. And, according to the festival organ- izers, this kind of planning, coupled with last year's success, is putting a rush on the applications for booths. Vicky and Roger Brown, who own the Victoria Belle Plantation, a special events facility on Main Street in Hogansville, hope to bring in a War Between the States encampment to their property for the whole festival weekend. There will be historically accurate craft i and military demonstrations as well as an actual military engagement. "It'll be a lot of fun," said Mrs. Brown, "and it's very educational. Kids love to ask the re-enactors questions about what they're doing and the re enactors love to answer them." And the Hogansville Alumni whose class reunion was such a wonderful part of last year's festival ("Main Street was one big hug") are also planning new activ- ities. A Hogansville Homecoming com- plete with an old timers football game and cheerleaders from yesteryear is under consideration. The festival, held this year on October 20th and 21st and billed as an Arts and Hogansville Festival Oct. 20-21 Crafts and Family Fun Extravaganza, raises money for the Hogansville Charitable Trust. The Trust, chaired by local business- man Jack Leidner, has helped Hogansville city government write and submit a series of federal grants for near- ly a million dollars worth of civic improvements, first and foremost being the renovation of the Royal Theater (Hogansville's City Hall). -... Work on the theater will begin this fall. Profits raised during the festival go toward the theater renovation and required matching funds for the grants. "The Hummingbird Festival is more important than ever this year," says Leidner. "Work should start soon on the City Hall with the Heritage 2000 grant and the $35,000 that Senator Dan Lee got from the state. And the Streetscapes grant of $350,000 will be put to contract soon and we'll also need matching funds there as well. The Hogansville depends on the festival to help of this. And it's not only good fun, too!" Hummin Stankiewicz says, "The to be bigger and better than We should top last year's record of nearly 5,000 people." And the food. arts and crafts applications are already Interested parties need to Stewart quickly to get spaces.
