Diorama Food Booth in need of volunteers, pies

The Hemingford Chamber of Commerce is reaching out to folks in Box Butte County for assistance.

The Box Butte County Fair is just a few short weeks away and the Chamber will once again be sponsoring the Diorama Food Booth at the Fair. Proceeds from the Diorama Food Booth are the only source of revenue we have to sustain the Diorama. The Chamber is once again requesting your assistance in two ways:

1- Donation of fruit pies to be sold at the Food Booth. Pies may be dropped off at the Diorama Food Booth, located on the Fair Grounds, Hemingford Cooperative Telephone Company or at Dave’s Pharmacy in Alliance, beginning Tuesday, August 6th through Friday, August 9th. 

2- Volunteers are needed to serve in the Food Booth on Thursday, August 8th and Saturday, August 10th between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 8:30 P.M.

If you are able to help out by volunteering a few hours on one of those days, please call Kathy Gettert at Hemingford Credit Union, 487-5578 or 487-5674.

“This is the only fundraiser we have for the Diorama,” said Blanche Randolph. There is a lot that goes into upkeep and maintenance of it for us to enjoy it every Christmas season.”

Blanche has stepped in to run the Diorama Food Booth as she knows how important keeping that tradition alive is.

Consider eating at the Diorama Food Booth when you’re enjoying the Fair. Something new to the food booth this year is that they will be open after the evening shows.

“Come by to enjoy coffee and pie,” Blanche said.

Thank you in advance for your help on this important community project!
