David McCaig is a 25-year volunteer with Dairy Festival and serves in many roles

David McCaig serves on the Carnival Committee along with Lonnie Fox. Both are part of the 25-member Dairy Festival Board of Directors. It’s true that most members have served for numerous years, some even decades, and that speaks well for any non-profit organization. In David’s case, it’s a family affair as his children and grandchildren have been part of numerous parades and pageants. And as members of Shannon Oaks Church, David’s family helps host the Festival’s Hot Air Balloon Glow and Rally and the Chamber’s Ice Cream Freeze-Off on the church grounds during the first weekend of Dairy Festival. Go to for a schedule and history of this most exciting annual event during June, Dairy Month!
