Summer Sippin Craft Brew FestThe second annual Summer Sippin’ Craft Brew Fest, a fundraiser for Freedom Park will be held June 24th in River Park Square.

Earlier this month the Plymouth Park Board approved a request to conduct the fundraiser in the city’s downtown park.

Park Board president Dave Morrow said it was a success last year and they picked a beautiful evening for the event.  It was estimated that the fundraiser brought in $30,000 to $35,000 for the all-inclusive playground in Packard Woods.  The park board noted an excellent turn-out and that the event was very well policed.

Park Superintendent Mike Hite told park board members he’s applied for a Community Foundation grant for some really nice portable vinyl fencing.  He’s hoping to have it in place because last year they had to use snow fencing.

Tony Gamble, the founder of Freedom Park said that Lesley Langfeldt will be the contact this year.  She’s taking the lead on most of the fundraising efforts and planning.  He did say they are working to add wine to this year’s event and hope to have 10 different vendors in addition to the 30 breweries.
