Garrettsville – The 2012 Summerfest planning is well on its way and the committee is in need of the public’s help for their latest project.  The committee is planning on having a multi-media extravaganza at the conclusion of each day, but to do so we need help. We are looking for family pictures, vacation pictures and military pictures in digital format for this multi-media extravaganza. The pictures can be of your family enjoying Summerfest activities or just pictures of your family having fun along with pictures of your soldier, airman sailor or marine.  Military pictures do not have to be in dress uniforms. In fact the committee would love to see pictures of those while serving in other countries. The pictures will need to depict the theme of the multi-media display, Freedom: A Celebration of the American Spirit.
The pictures will be intermixed with historical scenes, monuments, etc that will be put in a multi-media presentation to be shown at the conclusion of each day of the festival if the weather permits.
Photos will need to be in digital format and can be emailed by May 1, 2012 to   Hard copy photos will not be accepted. Submitted pictures will need to be family friendly, can be either black and white or color, can be recent or older as long as they depict the Spirit of America.  By submitting a photo or photos you are allowing the Summerfest Committee the right to use your photos for promotional purposes this year and in the future.

Summerfest is traditionally held the fourth weekend in June at the corners of S.R.82 and S.R. 88 in downtown Garrettsville. More information can be found at
