The 22nd Annual
Pecan Harvest Festival
Oct 31st - Nov 1st, 2014
|As the Director of the N.C. Pecan Harvest Festival and on behalf of the Festival’s dedicated Board members, I would like to thank all of those who came out and supported our 21st Annual N.C. Pecan Harvest Festival. Once again, Whiteville set the tone for hosting a wonderful and unforgettable event!
Our Festival was a true success and I am indeed grateful to all of the supporters, benefactors, volunteers, participants, and attendees. The Festival is successful because of dedicated committee members, community volunteers, cooperating businesses, and involved service organizations. Our volunteers are the backbone of the festival and it truly takes the efforts of all of them to have a successful event year, after year. It also takes benefactors; without your continual contribution, it would not be possible to have such a spectacular, FREE, event that our community looks forward to each year. The success is also dependent upon the families that come and take part of the festivities. Without that support we would not be able to have a festival at all. So a BIG THANK YOU to all who attended.
The N. C. Pecan Harvest Festival continues to grow, and I have been honored to serve as its director for the past two years. It did make me a little ‘nutty’, but that is one of the requirements of being the Director; you either start off nutty or you end up being nutty!
Thank you all again for being a part of our festival and we look forward to seeing you again next year!!!
