Introducing the 2020 Generalissimo - Janet Demo
Welcome to Neewollah 2020: Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!! This year’s family fun festival, which will be October 23 – 31, is already in the planning stages! We will begin the 9-day celebration with the musical “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”, a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this world car, based on the 1968 film version of Ian Fleming’s children’s book. Then we’ll have the annual Chili Cook-off, 5K/10K and Fun Run Events, the crowning of Queen Neelah LXXIX, carnival, food stands, bandstand entertainment, 3 parades, and band festival at the football stadium! There may be a surprise or two to add the closer we get to October! Keep checking the website or Neewollah Facebook page for updates!
I’m so honored to be the 2020 Generalissimo. When choosing the theme, I looked through the list of songs in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and saw the title “Teamwork”. After reading the lyrics it became so clear that it describes what Neewollah represents, Teamwork! Our volunteers, sponsors and the whole community come together as a team to make the “dream” work year after year!
Thank you all for being a part of the team, and the dream! Enjoy Neewollah 2020!
