The Royalton Community came together to host the first annual Walnut Festival. The event was held at the shelter of the Battlefield Park on Half Mountain on Saturday, November 2, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The day was a little cold, but the participation was better than expected. There was live music provided by Charlie Hall and Steve Lowe; Eddie Jenkins and The Midnite Promise; Austin Minix; Wittney Lovely and 2 Lanes Home. Local people were able to display and sell their goods during the day. Betty Lykins local author had a book signing of your book “Momma Loved to Dance.” A member of the Census Bureau handed out information on the 2020 count and BSCTC was available with their information about continuing education. At the end of the day, comments were being made on how to make it bigger and better next. As always, there is never enough help with these types of functions. If you would like to be involved helping with any of the events in Royalton, please let Paul Bailey, Marlene Howard, Johnna Prater and Karen Merritt know. A big “thank you” goes out to everyone who made this event possible.
