Festival of Dreams to be held June 1

Members of Allen-Lee Memorial United Methodist Church are hoping to bring some of their dreams closer to reality and let other people make some dreams come true, as well, on June 1.

The Festival of Dreams is returning to the Field of Dreams, which is adjacent to the historic church in Lone Oak. The church has offered free vendor spaces for the event – which is being held for the second year. A number of unique products and crafts will be offered.

There also will be music throughout the day and delicious food. The festival will be from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

A few spaces for vendors or yard sales are still available. To reserve one, call Ann Johnson at 770-927-6440 or Sandy Wood at 706-637-4656.

Members of the United Methodist Women – and other church members – are preparing food for a bake sale and a food sale. Many of the food items will be from recipes in the church’s cookbook, “Amazing Grace,” which will also be available during the day.

The Meriwether Adults Serving Kids Club will be preparing hamburgers, hotdogs and chili cheese fries. Cut members cut the potatoes by hand. “That’s going to be a hit,” predicted church member Lisa Ferrell.

The American Union Relief Society will be selling ice cream, lemonade and candy. J

esse O’Neal will be barbecuing pork butts and serving hot dogs, as well.

The Moreland Cultural Arts Alliance will be selling books and sports memorabilia.

There will be a table with Avon, and produce and live plants will be available for sale. Crafts will include handbags, blankets, bird houses and mailboxes. Lorraine Tallent from Franklin will have a table with unique items made with chicken feathers.

“Ann Watts does the lacy scarves,” Johnson said. Watts attended last year’s festival in Lone Oak and is planning to return this year.

Coleman Porter will be coming from Warm Springs. Porter “as a mission project sells crafts that are produced in Rwanda” by natives of that African country, Johnson said.

Ferrell will use her artistic talents to do face painting at the festival.

Among those planning to sing during the day are Ralph Lynch and Friends, the Atkins Family, Lance Mapp and Lone Oak’s own Paul Jordan.
