The Partnership for Floyd has declared the Jubilee a resounding success!! We have made over $1000 in donations and proceeds from music sales. But most important of all, our new Warren G. Lineberry Memorial Park was filled with fun and laughter; dancing, playing and wonderful music all day long!
We are so very thankful for the Jubilee organizers, all bands who played for us and for the Businesses who supported the event. We were blessed with a beautiful day after weeks of rain that grew our grass.

We still have much to do in the park to plant trees, build patios, walkways and an amphitheater. We are hoping that local businesses will help to build these things by donating and showcasing their work in the park.
Our next step is to have an engineering study done for water management and other logistical issues as we begin to gather more plans for our first patio.
The Warren G. Lineberry Memorial Park in our special town of Floyd has begun its life filled with music and smiles, lauging and playing, sunshine and song, babies to grannies. What could be better?
