"As for funding, we raise money through our program book ads, grants, individual donations, memberships and other fundraising activities," she said. "If there is more that we can do, I wish they would tell me."
The Ti Festival Guild website was down for two weeks in early June, when the funding application was being considered, Burdick said, but was operating before and has been since.
This season the guild held its programs at the Knights of Columbus pavilion. It's an arrangement Burdick hopes to continue.
"We need to talk with the Knights of Columbus about next year, but we're very satisfied," she said. "It's been a good match."
The guild will formally close its 2010 season with its President's Party. It will be a family picnic on Saturday, Sept. 11, at 4 p.m. at the K of C pavilion.
Each year the president picks an event, open to the public, as a special get-together.
A basket raffle will be part of the program. Featured will be traditional picnic food: hot dogs, hamburgers, wings, baked beans, salad, chips, dessert and beverages. Games will be offered for the children and others who wish to enter. For musical fun, easy circle and square dances will be called.
The ticket price is $12 for adults and $5 for children, not to exceed $25 for a family. Tickets are available from board members and by calling 585-7015.
