BREAKING: Decision made to dissolve Riverfest celebration

The annual Riverfest celebration in Windom is no more.

In a press release sent out Friday afternoon after Thursday's meeting, the members of the Riverfest Committee voted unanimously to "dissolve Riverfest in its current form with intent to transition into a new structure and governing body."

The committee had sent out a plea to the community, seeking 12 volunteers to commit to 12 months to help organize the annual celebration by the Sept. 12 meeting.

Thursday's meeting had 14 people in attendance, eight of whom were willing to serve as one of the 12 needed volunteers. After a long discussion, the motion to dissolve the celebration was unanimously passed.

Those in attendance agreed to work toward having a vibrant 2014 community celebration, with the eight who volunteered agreeing to assist in the transition to a new governing body and event structure.

A community meeting will be held Sept. 30, at 5:30 p.m., at the Windom Chamber Office to discuss the possible future celebration. All people interested are encouraged to attend.
