Warner Foliage Festival Raises Funds For Community Groups
The 65th annual fall foliage festival took place in Warner, New Hampshire this weekend. Attendees could purchase crafts by local artisans, go on rides, or share a country breakfast the United Church of Warner.
Sherry Thomas, this year’s fall foliage festival president, says the festival got started as a way to raise money for a World War II memorial. Today, the proceeds go to a variety of local causes. Thomas says "everybody in town will present a grant request. The town comes together and votes on that the first Thursday in December, and we decide who gets it and they are granted it at that time."
Past festival funds have purchased uniforms for boy scouts and girl scouts, scholarships for skiing, and a television for the local Indian Museum.
