Oktoberfest 2016 - another success!
It was another great turn out for our annual CW Oktoberfest!  Though we don’t have official attendance numbers, I would have to say that this year topped them all.  Weather, music, and food made this a great event for everyone.  We ate our way through 700 brats and hot dogs, 110lbs of potato salad and cole slaw, and more than 1200 cookies.

Many thanks are due to many people….
  • A special thank you to my wife, Gail, for enduring another year of planning, prepping, serving and cleaning without complaint;
  • All of the adult and youth volunteers that helped bring the event together;
  • Katherine Neal and her group for coordinating the food drive.  Cameron Wood continues to show how generous and caring we are by collecting over 500lbs of non-perishable food for Loaves and Fishes;
  • CW HOA for continuing to fund and support what has become an annual and much anticipated CW tradition;
  • Our corporate partners:  Pinnacle Amusements, SouthEnd Home Improvement, and Triple C Brewing Co. for providing different elements to make our CW Oktoberfest a great event.

A special thank you this year to the band Common Ground for providing a fantastic collection of songs and overall awesome music experience!

Auf Wiedersehen, David Lewyn
A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO DAVID LEWYN for heading this event up every year!
"Once again our community was lucky to have David Lewyn dedicate himself to organizing a wonderful Oktoberfest.  This is the most popular event that we host each year and we are incredibly lucky to have David put this show on.  Not only does he manage the vendors, order the beer, pickup all the food, cook all the food, organize volunteers, and make sure everyone is having a great time, but he also helps organize donations for Loaves and Fishes.  David has almost single-handedly put on this event for years and we are extremely grateful for him."  -Chris, CWHOA President
