Old Timer's Days Couple
It's time for nominations for Old Timers Days Couple. Write a detailed, meaningful letter about the couple you'd like to nominate and be willing to read it on stage at the festival during opening ceremonies.
For a couple to be eligible for this honor, one of the two must be at least 65 years old and nominated by a relative or friend in a letter telling about their achievements and their support of our town of Peebles. The letters are taken out of town so impartial judges can select the winners.
Send your letters to: OTD Couple, P.O. Box 243, Peebles, Ohio 45660. Deadline: Letters postmarked by September 1st. The winners family will be notified a week before the festival begins and as always we will announce the couple on stage during opening ceremony on Festival Thursday.
