Preparation begins for 'Cornstock' Plans are underway for the fifth annual "Cornstock" event in Wakonda.
The benefit will be held in the city park. As in the past, activities will be scheduled throughout the day, which will include a car and craft show, children's games, volleyball tournament, tug-of-war, bar-be-cue supper, dance and fireworks.
One new event this year will include a horseshoe competition. Watch for a schedule of the day's activities in upcoming issues of this paper.
"Cornstock" has been successful in raising money for swimming pool improvements. This year will include funding a new backstop and benches at the ball diamond, which should be installed this summer. Future funds will be utilized for repair, replacement and maintenance of park equipment.
The "Cornstock" committee wishes everyone a fun and safe summer and looking forward to seeing the community at "Cornstock."
