On behalf of Greater Historic Traders Point, I would like to thank our neighborhood and community for their support of Oktoberfest which was designed to raise money for our Rural Historic District nominations. We had no idea the interest that there is in this project and in the preservation of greenspace. Your support is overwhelming! We netted just over $12,000 (and donations are still coming in!) and can now pay the remainder of the fee due to Camilla Fife (consultant) and fund some markers upon approval of the nominations! Most of all, though, it was great to see neighbors and friends enjoying our area and having fun on a gorgeous fall day!
We definitely were overwhelmed by the turnout on the day of Oktoberfest. In hindsight, there are items we could and should do differently, but we graciously admire and appreciate your patience and support of this event and, in turn, our goal of establishing two Rural Historic Districts.
Thank you for your time, for your donations, and, most of all, thank you for your friendships and for your love of our area!
