03 - 04 - 2014 Burnham Jamboree committee cancells plans for event in 2014
[LS] - Last night Denny Clark was before the Burnham Borough Council representing the Burnham Jamboree Committee with plans on cancelling the annual Jamboree for 2014. Clark told the council that the committee's usual ride contractor has signed on at another location and that "An appropriate ride contractor has not been negotiated yet." Clark stressed this does not mean the permanent cancellation of the annual event, which was started over the Memorial Day weekend in 1980. Clark said the committee would continue to maintain the property used during the time the Jamoboree would take place, as agreed upon in the original lease. Clark said, "Some of the ideas thrown around are a one-day event like a pig roast or raffle, but we have not decided on anything yet."
