It’s a wrap, folks!  On May 26, we gathered up some of the 2016 King William Fair troops to Beethoven Maennerchor Halle und Garten and celebrated with those who dedicated their valuable time and incredible talents to make this the best Fair we have had to date! 
Although the Fair had close to 1,000 volunteers, there were some exceptional people we wanted to reward for their commitment, experience and positive performances.  We also wanted them to know that our community appreciates their efforts to preserve and enhance the King William Historic District.  Neighboring businesses and those beyond our boundaries donated their services and products to recognize these amazing individuals.
