Cairo CornStalk Festival news

Here is an update from the CornStalk committee on some of the projects our festival has funded this year. Centura Elementary physical education department has created a bicycle unit for the k-2nd grade class. The committee contributed to this. We also contributed to the Wings project started by Mandy Schweitzer and we hope to see some up by the end of the year. We are also working on getting some shade at the pool for next year. All this is possible through your continued donations and support of the annual Cairo CornStalk Festival!
