100 Days and Counting...

Today is my one-year anniversary of working here at the Pullman Chamber of Commerce and it is officially 100 days until the National Lentil Festival. All of the sponsors are on board, the poster has been printed and is ready to be unveiled May 28, vendor applications are pouring in, and the merchandise has all been ordered. Our Little Lentil King and Queen have chosen the parades they will attend with the Lentil Express this year. If you would like to see the Lentil Express, we will be attending the following parades:

Rosalia Battle Days in Rosalia, WA: June 6
Slippery Gulcch Days in Tekoa, WA: June 20
Johnson Parade in Johnson, WA: July 4
Albion Parade in Albion, WA: July 4
Potlatch Community Days: July 18
National Lentil Festival Parade: August 22
Paul Bunyan Days in St. Maries, ID: September 5
Palouse Days Festival in Palouse, WA: September 19
University of Idaho Homecoming in Moscow, ID: October 31

I am feeling strangely ahead of schedule but I'm sure that feeling will pass. Fortunately we have a crack team here at the office and on our Lentil Festival Committee! We recently hired an Events Intern for the summer and are pleased to have Allyson join our team on Monday. This is a Festival that really does take a village to put together. We have representation from almost every industry in the community. This means more sources of new, creative ideas for the festival for you! If you are interested in volunteering for the Festival or helping out on the Committee in any way, please email director@lentilfest.com. The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 14 at the Pullman Chamber Office.
