A Freedom Fest tradition over the years has been to ask seventh grade girls, who wish to participate, to run for Miss Earlham. This is a contest and the contestants sell raffle tickets for prizes, which are donated or purchased with funds raised. The girl who raises the most money from ticket sales is crowned Miss Earlham at Freedom Fest. This sale of tickets by Miss Earlham contestants will fund just about the entire Freedom Fest celebration for our town and neighboring communities. This is an opportunity to participate in a very worthwhile community service project.
This year, three young ladies have taken on the opportunity and are asking for your help to raise funds for Freedom Fest. If you see these hard-working young ladies out and about, ask them what they are up to and consider helping us raise the funds needed to continue with the Freedom Fest celebration.
