Terry Thompson 15th Annual Memorial Beach Volleyball Tournament
For those of you who may not have known Terry Thompson, he and others were the founders and director of this tournament over 25 years ago. Terry was also at one time the Lake City High School Volleyball coach, a teacher, upper elementary principal, referee, Lake City High School Athletic Director, a wonderful husband, father, and friend. All profits from this tournament will be used for a scholarship fund in his name. Terry passed away on January 10, 2004, after a long battle with cancer. He will always be missed and this tournament has become a special way to remember him and his contributions to our local youth.
Festival 2018 Platinum Sponsors
GFITN18 Program Cover Design
A tradition starting back in 1996; our Chamber asks our local High School Art Department to come up with a design for our GFITN program guide & T-Shirt art. We are happy to announce this year’s winner is Madeline “Maddie” Jimenez! You may recognize her name because she was our winner last year as well! Maddie is the daughter Ramiro & Jennifer Jimenez, she participates in volleyball and has taken art with Melissa Spence at Lake City High for the last 3 years. Although she has not quite decided on her future plans, she is interested in pursuing a degree in art.
