Sturgis Falls is a HUGE Success!!!!
This year we reached a new all-time record this year!!!
In these 3-days, we sold over $7200 worth of kettle corn. This is an increase of $600 over our previous record.
This was an event that required a great deal of dedication from the group. We had over 300 member-hours of labor. Beyond that, we even had the wonderful team of workers from Kohl's who provided over 36 hours of assistance.
It was a productive day. We had two hours of down time Saturday afternoon while it rained. At the rate we were going we had missed sales of more than $700. David Loy reported that we popped 21 50-pound bags of popcorn. At 25 bushels of popped popcorn per 50-pound bag, this means that we popped 525 bushels. Not a bad day of selling.
"A lot of work went into making this happen. As always this was a TEAM
effort - a super job by everyone," says club president, Jim Larson.
