Does anybody know when the Pine Beetle Festival is this year? What band will be playing?(I posted this with the Post Name and Subject reversed a minute ago. First time I have posted on here... thought I would "re-do" it correctly :-)

I think the festival has been moved up to October. I think Extreme Caution is playing this year. I am glad!

The festival has been officialy changed to the first Friday and Saturday in October every year. There was just too much going on during the Thanksgiving holidays. It worked well last year so we decided to keep it the first weekend in October from now on. Extreme Caution is playing this year so come on out and support this great home town band. Several events will be added this year and we are always looking for new volunteers. Our next
meeting will be May 4th at 6:30 at Castor City Hall. Everyone is welcome to come and get involved. I will try and keep this site updated with events and information as it becomes available. Thanks for asking.

Sorry to disappoint you but I am still there. Why do you hate me? I don't think I have ever done anything to you, but then again I don't know who you are because you didn't have the guts to use your real name !!The way I see it is that if you are talking about me you are letting someone else rest, so bring it on. I am a big girl and can handle it. The festival is bigger and better than ever and I am very proud to be a part of it. Maybe if you joined us you would see that. I am so sorry that you hate me. Maybe we need to sit and talk face to face. I am game, are you? Just let me know. BUT...until you want to be an adult and use your real name I don't think we have anything to talk about.

way to go Melanie!!!!!I am really proud you take the time out of your very busy life to take on the task of the pine beetle festival. I think it is hilarious that someone actually wrote that rediculous statement...they apparently have never taken on a big project in their life...

Thanks tired, unless people have been apart of something this big, they have no idea what all it takes to pull it all together! We have committee meetings year round in order to stay on top of things. We have a great committee and we all work well together. Like I said before, if you want to help, you are always welcome to join our group. Thanks for your compliment and nice words of encouragement.

I am so glad that I know that I HAVE JESUS AND YES, I WILL BE IN HEAVEN. And since I don't even want my enemies in hell I seriously hope you will be there with me. I truly mean that.
I am a forgiving person. I just don't know who or what to forgive. Want to let me in on your real name yet?You must be a really miserable person and for that I am truly sorry. Everyone deserves to be happy and I can't fathom anyone that is being mean and nasty to someone else on purpose as being a happy person. Again, I am sorry you feel the way you do but I can't do anything about it if you keep refusing to let me know who you are. This will be the last time I post to your comments until you are ready to do that. I don't have time for foolishness. I AM OFF TO CHURCH!!!

"JINGLEHELL!"
Didn't you read where she ain't talkin toyou any more? Can't you get that through your trashy head? After all this topic is supposed to be about the Pine Beetle FDestival!! If you ask me she is the one taking the high road. I know her and she is a nice christian lady no matter what you think. If she is so bad why haven't others joined your bashing party on here?
I noticed the other night that you posted under three different headings and they were all negative. How sad a person are you? PITTIFUL, PITTIFUL!!!!! JINGLEHELL IS PITTIFUL!!!!
She probably did something that only you thought was wrong of her and you got your panties in a wad. Put your big girl panties on and realize that maybe you are the one folks don't like !!!

boy oh boy...jinglehell is stirring up mess everywhere on here. It must be really neat to be able to sit around all day and try to piss people off by popping off at people. And amazingly they aint got big enough balls to leave their real name. So do you not have a life or is your so crappy that you need to mess with others just to get your kicks...by the way, my name is Lea...

I really hope they do something in honor of Mike Driggers. He loved the festival. And one other thing........ I wish the name of " Pinebettle" would be changed to something else. Funny our town is to be known for pinebettles! Any suggestions people??? Just a thought, Lol.

We are going to honor Mike with a "ghost car" in the parade. The signs on the side of the car will say something like "In memory of Mike Driggers". This is to symbolize how Mike will be missed and to honor him for everything that he did in the past for the festivals that were held in Castor. He loved Castor and the festival!!
As far as changing the name of the festival it probably won't happen for awhile if at all. There is a legal charter that set the name of the festival and it is quiet expensive to change it legally. Maybe if the festival has some fund raisers and it is the majority census of the people that are involved as volunteers it might be discussed.People who don't volunteer with the festival and are not involved in any of it don't know how it all works. It has to be done legally. We had to hire a lawyer to get incorporated and it cost us quiet a bit of money.
Come to our meetings and get involved and see how it all works. Next meeting, tuesday, September 7th at 6:30 at Castor City Hall.
