THE KINZUA BRIDGE FOUNDATION, INC.
THANKS TO ALL!
Kinzua bridge foundation is so very proud to sponsor and bring this annual festival to the area for 20 years with attendance numbers topping 12,000 for the two day event held September 16 &17 at the Kinzua Bridge State Park.
Executive Director, Mary Ann Burggraf said it truly is one of the best outdoor festivals being a family oriented festival held in Northwest Pennsylvania. Some 100 vendors, 60 past and new performers, the annual Zem Zem cars, horse and pony rides provided by the McKean County Wranglers 4-H Clubs being a favorite for the children.
The weather was perfect, abundance of favorite festival foods, great entertainment including the the 3rd annual Bigfoot calling contest that brought out some seven contestants, all winners with their chilling calls of the wild beast.
The 18 wheel trailer stage was provided by Jim Myers Trucking of Mt. Jewett, with S&B Productions providing the sound that was well heard through out the park.

KBF ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Executive Director, Mary Ann Burggraf addressed the fundraising projects of the foundation. The Foundation's (Commemorative Brick" Campaign -Be A Part Of History) will be the foundations on going mainfundraiser. The PA Wilds Center for Entrepreneurship being the proprietor’s of the new Kinzua Bridge Visitors Center gift shop and not the Kinzua Bridge Foundation which did state their interest with the DCNR in noting all funds from the foundations sales goes directly back to the Kinzua Bridge State Park, however the funds from the PA Wilds gift shop does not contribute directly to the Kinzua Bridge State Park.

Therefore the foundations funding will only be generated from the annual festival along with the Commemorative "Brick" Campaign.

The PA WILDS is purchasing kinzua bridge shirts from the foundation for resale at the PA WILDS shop, with the retail price being paid to the foundation. Burggraf said the goal of the foundation was to fund a playground, a closed pavilion with a fireplace, and anamphitheater. For many years, hundreds of community volunteers have contributed to the development and to say the least in keeping this one and only state park open in Mc Kean County. Some PA counties have up to five stateparks.

Burggraf said: “This Kinzua Bridge Foundation, Inc. with past, present members, and the many formed groups before have certainly been the strong arm that has brought this state park to the wonder it is today along with being listed as one of the “TOP TEN MUST VITST STATE PARKS IN Pennsylvania. “

Clark, President thanked all attending the meeting, saying it was a very productive and enjoyable annual meeting held at the state park, concluded with the meeting being adjourned.
