The Good Neighbor Club will be embarking on a new adventure, hosting its first annual “Octoberfest” on Sunday, Oct. 28, starting at 2 p.m., at the Galata Community Hall. All are invited and encouraged to attend.

Galata Good Neighbors Club will be hosting a fall festival, for the first time, in hopes that it will become an annual event! Join us for our “Octoberfest” celebration on Sunday, Oct. 28, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., at the Galata Community Hall in Galata.

This family friendly event will feature light snacks and beverages, games and prizes, and fun for all! Halloween costumes are appropriate and encouraged! 

The Galata Good Neighbors Club was established in the 1930s as the Galata Home Extension Club. At that time the club focused on home demonstration, inviting experts to give presentations, featuring home economics. The GGNC has evolved throughout the years and today it is centered on bringing community members together and giving back. 

 The Good Neighbors Club takes responsibility for the maintenance of the Galata Community Hall, where many community events take place. These events include: fundraisers, receptions, voting, meetings, and many more.

In addition to caring for the community hall, members of the Good Neighbors Club give back to Galata and surrounding communities through volunteer work and community outreach. The Good Neighbors Club has donated funds to the Heritage Center in Shelby, collected canned goods for the Sagebrush Food Pantry, sponsored the Galata school children in the “I Love to Read” month fundraiser, provided pies and service for many elections, among several other acts of service. 

Members of the Galata Good Neighbors Club are Larissa Fenger, Helen Leck, Katy Leck, Carrie Lerum, Julie Shearer, Geneva Sisk and Debra Steinbacher. We hope to see you at our inaugural Fall Festival.
