letter to the editor
Thanks for supporting Red, White & Blues

I would like to thank everyone for such a wonderful second Red, White & Blues Festival!

We had a great turnout and with the changes we made everything flowed much better than last year. The watermelon-eating contest was a big hit with the kids and their parents. RMS Band was rocking and got people on their feet to dance. The food was wonderful as was the cold beer, wine and frozen margaritas (not to mention the cold water on a hot summer’s day).

We continue to listen to the attendees’ suggestions and are trying to incorporate them going forward. As always, we all hope that this will continue to be a Farragut town tradition that we can continue to grow and improve.

Again, thank you to the following:

• Red, White & Blues Committee: Committee Chair Ginny McLain-Tate, BB&T; Carla Lyle, BB&T; Phil Dangel, Shrimp Dock; David Purvis, Farragut Wine & Spirits; Robin Purvis, Farragut Wine & Spirits; Dan Barile, farragutpress — he says he isn’t on the committee but he does too much not to be.

• Our Sponsors: Doug and Brenda Horne; Town of Farragut; TDS; farragutpress; BB&T; Ingles; Dayton’s Pest Control; Event Rentals by Rothchild; NewsTalk 98.7 WOKI; LCUB

• The Food Vendors: Shrimp Dock; Archer’s BBQ; Oskie’s Sports Grill; Firehouse Subs

• Our Beer and Wine Sponsors: Eagle Distributing; Yellow Tail Wine; Barefoot Wine; Lee Payette for working the booth and providing the frozen margaritas.

I also would like to thank all of our volunteers for their time and effort in making this event flow so smoothly.
