Festival organizer Donna Henry gave the town council an update last week. “For the Mint Festival Committee, everything is pretty much ready for the festival to go on, and we’re looking forward to a very pleasant weekend for our community,” she said.
The festival takes on an added significance this year, since it’s North Judson’s sesquicentennial. To mark the occasion, the town is planning an ice cream social to take place during this weekend’s festivities. Clerk-Treasurer Alicia Collins says it will be held Saturday afternoon from 1:00 to 3:00 in the Town Hall, “Basically, we’ll use this as a cooling station. If anybody wants to stop by, we’ll celebrate North Judson’s sesquicentennial, and we’re going to do an old-fashioned ice cream social. We’ll have some pictures and memorabilia in here. They can tell stories.”
Town council member Jane Ellen Felchuk says several pictures from the North Judson-Wayne Township Public Library’s collection will be on display, and residents will have the chance to help identify some of the people in the photographs.
The Mint Festival takes place Friday, June 17 through Sunday, June 19.
