  5. 5. 2010 Fall Festival Grand Marshal Ray Batman Ray is a native of central Illinois. He was born in Tuscola, lived in Sullivan, and moved to Blue Mound while in the fifth grade. He graduated from Blue Mound High School in 1962. He attended Lincoln Land Community College, Lake Land Community College, and the University of Illinois Springfield. He is the son of Don and Pauline Batman. Ray and his younger brothers Bill, who died in an automobile accident in 1970, and Jim lived with their parents in the second house built in Sunnyside Addition. All three boys were paper carriers for the Chicago Daily News. He married Nancy Jo Scott, daughter of John (Scotty) and Iva Scott, in 1964. They had three children, Jay of Charlotte, NC, Shannon Percoco of Champaign, IL and Lindsay Chapman of Seattle, WA. After 38 wonderful years of marriage, Nancy Jo passed away in January 2003. Ray found love a second time and married Missy Vieweg in 2006. He has two grown stepdaughters, Amanda, of Charlotte, NC, and Megan, of Decatur. Ray and Missy are the very proud grandparents of Lexi (3), Teo (3), Logan (1) and Nico (1). After graduating from Blue Mound High School, Ray spent two years in the oil fields of Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. When he and Nancy Jo were first married, they lived in Canton, MO, where Ray helped construct a concrete grain elevator. They moved back to Blue Mound, where Ray worked for the Blue Mound Grain Company for two years, and then worked for his father-in-law at Scotty’s Supermarket, as one of very few left-handed butchers on record. In 1967 the Blue Mound Jaycees and the Blue Mound Fire Department were recruited to organize the Blue Mound Fall Festival. If those organizations had not stepped forward, there is speculation the Festival would not have survived to celebrate “A Century of Fun! Fun! Fun!” 4
  6. 6. Ray was president of the Jaycees and Bill Hadden was president of the Volunteer Fireman. The two men worked very hard to create a team approach that allowed many volunteers to enjoy running the Festival instead of a handful of the same persons doing all the work. They had only $7.85 to work with that year, but with several chairmen and many people volunteering over the years, the festival continues on solid footing. In 1970 Ray began as Dove, Inc.’s first staff person in Decatur. He served as executive director until 1977, when he and his family relocated to Camp Walter Scott, south of Effingham, IL. After working as an associate regional minister for the Christian Church in Illinois and Wisconsin for nine years, the Batman’s moved back to Decatur in 1986, where Ray served as the finance director at Dove until being appointed executive director in 1997. Dove, Inc. is a multi-service agency, formed as a coalition of religious organizations in 1970 to provide human services in a variety of areas of need. Dove operates in Dewitt, Macon, Moultrie, Piatt and Shelby counties in central Illinois. Its major programs include: comprehensive domestic violence shelter and services, community organizing, senior volunteer opportunities, emergency assistance, women’s advocacy, youth drug abuse prevention, recycling, diversity training, and services to the homeless population. Although Dove is sponsored by 58 area churches, its programs and services are provided to any without regard to religious affiliation and are not religious in content. Ray continues to lead Dove and is well respected by the social service community for his work and advocating for those in need. With the exception of his brief stint as a HER magazine centerfold earlier this year, Ray’s traditional Midwest values have guided him well in life.

  7. 7. The Original Fall Festival “Our greatest blessings are FREE — water, air, sunshine, and the social intermingling of kindred spirits.” This contemplation appears in the opening pages of the 1910 Fall Festival booklet. The original festival was held on October 13, 14 & 15, 1910. It goes on to state that, “every condition that possibly could contribute to social pleasure will be present — the jolly crowds, the varied amusements, the scenes and triumphs, the splendid township exhibits, the captivating music, the keen appetites, the delicious diners, the ever-widening circle of friends, and the ever-changing panorama are features that warms the hearts of all, and that even night tempts the presence of Cupid himself.” The main purpose of the original festival was, “an opportunity for farmers to exhibit their products…..not to offer to the public a carnival composed of cheap shows, but a Festival which is for the benefit of the farmers and merchants.” The majority of the first program book was dedicated to listing the categories of entries, which ranged from mules, draft horses, poultry, grain, food entries and artwork. The top cash prize given was $5, though most ranged from 25¢–$2.00. Other prizes for winners ranged from chocolates, shoes, buggy whips, cigars, coffee, flour, dishes and canned fruit. Some of the more unusual prizes: • A ton of coal from the Blue Mound Coal Co. for the person winning the greatest number of premiums in the poultry category • ¼ dozen Head Lice Ointment from Blue Mound Pharmacy to the winner of the Best White Leghorn Cockerel (a rooster) • A six month subscription to the Blue Mound Leader and a ‘fine writeup’ to the lady baking the best cake of any kind • A soup ladle to the best lady driver of a single rig (a small, horse-drawn carriage) • A 50¢ bottle of Corn Huskers’ Liniment from Dr. Montgomery to the person entering the heaviest ear of corn All entries had to be owned and produced by entrants from Mosquito, Stonington, Mt. Auburn, Buckhart, Blue Mound, Pleasant View, Prairieton or South Macon townships. 6
  8. 8. The 1912 Blue Mound Fall Festival Committee. Left to right in front row: James M. Beckett, Ben Joestes, A.A. Bauer. Back row: E.P. Brewer, Harry Griswold, Charles Crow, Charles H. Moomey, W. Scott Davidson and Eli Peck. W.O. Matthew was the tenth member of the committee. Meals were served by the ladies of the area churches. The area businesses could compete in decorated window display contests. There were contests for “prettiest baby girl” and “prettiest baby boy.” There were prizes given for best decorated floats, though there is no mention in the 1910 booklet of an actual parade. It is unknown exactly which amusements were present at the original Fall Festival. It can be verified that at least beginning in the late ‘teens, there were offerings of a Ferris wheel, swings, fun house and chance games. A few traveling carnivals even offered “girlie shows” and fixed fights, though these were later deemed to be adverse to the family nature of the festival and were therefore halted. The location of the earliest Fall Festivals was in the area that is now between the present-day Post Office and the State Bank of Blue Mound. Though much has changed since the original festival was held one hundred years ago, it is in that same spirit that we endeavor to continue on with this tradition. We wish you the greatest blessings, and hope you have the opportunity to enjoy the ‘social intermingling of kindred spirits’ on this, our centennial Fall Festival. 7

  36. 36. Zoo Improv Saturday | 6:30 pm | Wise Park Stage Composed of a diverse group of performers who love to improvise, the core members of Zoo Improv have worked together since early 2004. They’ve triggered belly laughs and inadvertent snorts throughout the central Illinois area. Like silly putty, they are versatile and create a unique comedy experience. Audiences young and old have pointed, laughed, and even blown beverages out their noses at Zoo Improv’s on-stage antics. 35
  37. 37. Flatlands Band Saturday | 8:00 pm | Wise Park From its humble beginnings, Flatlands Band has become central Illinois’ leading variety band! From old to new country and slipping in some old rock and roll from time to time, you’ll never know what you might hear next. From Chuck Berry to George Jones, Patsy Cline to Kellie Pickler, it’s all good with Flatlands Band. Members in good standing are: Rick Clayton, Kayleigh Cisco, Lenny Greitman, Dave Napier, Joel Clayton and Donny Henderson. 36

And so when the dear day opens, When the tents and the booths are there, When the gates run full with a happy flood That rolls from everywhere, When the bands are playing, playing, When the bag-horns wail and cry. And the thousands bend with holden breath While the fattening horses fly. We’ll think of the friends for gathering And thinking of me and you And we will go the festival ourselves Just as we always do.
