  • Derrick Days' recovery

    In many ways, the embezzlement of all the Derrick Days funds in 2013 created a stronger festival, although it certainly hurt at the time.
    A volunteer with the festival committee embezzled about $27,000 from the fund, leaving the organization $1,000 overdrawn, a theft that was discovered just a couple of months before the festival was scheduled to take place.
    In response, the community and local trusts rallied around it, pulling together grants and donations to ensure the festival came off succesfully. The 2014 festival came off strong, again, and the fund as of June 1 stood at about $34,000, according to Fran Townes, chairwoman of the Derrick Days Committee.
    “We spent more, it costs a lot more to put it on these days,” Townes said. “For example, when Brad (Haynie) started this thing back about 12 years ago, he had $1,500 in the bank account to start. Which is amazing that he was able to do it. I have over $34,000, and my total expenses this year to put it on was $75,000.”
