Renew for 2022 A Note From The Festival Chair Festival 2021 promises to be a reunion of sorts. It is not the normal three day Festival, but it will be great to gather in Rome on November 20th and be Happy Together. With Festival 2020 being virtual it will be great to gather again in person to present another monumental Festival. We have done a lot of planning for this Festival being held at Rome Community Theater and will make the best of whatever the pandemic has to offer. Specific pandemic protocols are listed on the next page and will be followed to keep everyone safe. After a year watching the activity on Zoom we will be reunited on Nov. 20. The day will be composed of a morning and an afternoon session with several shows in each. A lunch for Superpass purchasers will also be provided across the street at the Delta Lake Bible Conference Center. Plans for exactly what will be offered will be formulated and placed on the TANYS website, as always, in early November. The schedule in this Callboard is very preliminary. Have you ever come to Festival and tried to buy a t-shirt, only to find they did not have your size? On page 13 of this Callboard, you’ll see this year’s Festival t-shirt colors and a form to pre-order your shirt by November 12, to pick up at Festival. We encourage all of you to take advantage of this opportunity. For shirts sold at Festival, the price will go up $2 (and supplies will be limited), so we highly recommend you place your shirt order with payment by November 12. We have once again selected the Hampton Inn on Floyd Ave. in Rome as our host hotel, and negotiated a special rate for those who make reservations by mentioning the TANYS Festival when calling for reservations. We hope ALL of you consider staying there. Make your reservations today! Page 8 of this Callboard gives you a rundown of other fun things happening at Festival. We hope you will partake in these events, as well as the main Festival offerings. One particular exciting event will be the mega- award ceremony at the end of the evening. Register today!. We in Rome promise to provide you a Festival worth the investment of a Superpass! After two years since the last in person Festival in Rome are looking forward to this Festival and hope you will as well. Guaranteed, you will leave happy! John G. Parker TANYS Administrative Secretary 2021 Festival Chair
