Councilor Tim Babcock who is also the President of the Festival said there was a lot of work done by the committees and sub-committees and more people have become interested in volunteering. He said the 465 helicopter rides by Wings Over Kississing raised about 88 hundred dollars for the Festival. Mayor George Fontaine added volunteerism here is community wide and that should be recognized.
