Porchfest update
Sarah Madsen, Porchfest Winters founder and organizer, says this year’s benefactor is the Senior Class of 2023 Sober Grad Night.

“Thank you for all of the interest so far,” Madsen said of the community’s response. “The lineup of musicians is shaping up, and we could use a couple more porches.”

In addition to porches to host the musical talent, Madsen is seeking volunteers to help and donations to support bringing in restrooms for the event.

The third annual Porchfest music event is bringing “good vibes” to the community on Sept. 18.
