Balloon Fest 2013 Landowners Awards
Landowner awards were presented to four lucky landowners as part of Balloon Fest 2013. Winners each received $125 for allowing Balloonists to land on their property during the weekend events. After the flights, pilots filled out a landowner certificate for each property on which they landed. All of the certificates were turned in to the Chamber office and from those, four names were drawn. The awards were sponsored by Corner Pharmacy, 724 East Noleman St.
The main purpose of the landowners committee is to cultivate good will among landowners, balloonists, and the community so everyone can enjoy this spectacular family event. Landowner participation is essential to the success of the Balloon Fest. The Chamber of Commerce is very appreciative of the cooperation and kindness shown to the pilots by landowners.
Winners of the Landowner awards and the balloons that landed on their property were: Al Minton of Centralia, Deb Smith of Centralia, Jerad Peters of Centralia, Dr. Dana Mathis of Centralia.
