AND THE ANSWER IS....Jim Mongeau was a longtime chairman and general manager of Alpenfest. He was also named the very first Buergermeister in 1980. His wife Darlene was his loyal partner serving tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the success of the festival. She remains an Alpenfest supporter and the Dar Award is now given in her honor every year.

ALPENFEST TRIVIA....Who can identify these individuals and their significance to Alpenfest?
