Fall Festival

The 2019 Fall Festival was held in October at the Carson Store, Saturday, 10/12/19, 12–4pm. This is the CCA’s major annual fundraiser. We had a wonderful raffle, a great BBQ and bake sale, entertainment including live music, and folks brought things to sell. There was a good turn-out, with many people coming to meet and visit with neighbors while enjoying some food and entertainment, and browsing the items for sale.
