A Look Behind the Hog Days Curtain!

Meet the 2017 seven member Board of Directors of Hog Capital Barbecue, Inc., who along with an army of awesome volunteers and a community spirit second to none, put this Hog Fest thing together. 

Committee members include: Rick Dennison, Jeff, Kaye and Ron Finney, Annette Finney, Ken Gutschlag, Larry Neels, Ruth and Teresa Neuleib, Howard O'Neil, Keith Resch, Ruth Anne Scott, Marcie Spiker, Kris Wexell, Terry, Marge and Wally Wickey.

Unfortunately, we have no available photo of the most important people of all in our organization...the countless individuals who just show up each and every Hog Fest weekend, not wanting any credit, who start in cleaning, grilling, selling tickets and doing all the things that make our community shine throughout Labor Day weekend. You are the true "stars" of this production we call Hog Days!

All of our Full Committee meetings are always open to the public and you are welcome to attend.  All meetings listed below begin at 7 PM.

Speaking of volunteers, got a few people we'd like you to meet. Please click here.
