Lisa Sandbrink grew up in the Millersport area and has lived in the Baltimore community since 1990. She and her husband Joe of 36 years, have 2 adult children who graduated from Liberty Union.   In 2005, Joe and Lisa pursued a “little family business” called BrainFreeze Tropical Sno. That little family business has grown into a 2 trailer mobile business with 20-25 events each season. They enjoy going to fairs, festivals, soccer tournaments, the American Cancer Society Relay for Life event, farmer markets and private family gatherings to name a few. Lisa and Joe are very passionate about giving back to the community and have committed themselves to make the Baltimore Festival a community based, fun and affordable event for families of any income.  Lisa and Joe also enjoy an occasional movie matinee and traveling when time permits.  They attend Millersport Covenant Church.

Jessie Knepp, Secretary


Jessie is originally from Worthington Ohio, moving to Baltimore in 2015 with her husband Aric, and four children (ages 11, 9, 5, and 2). Her professional background is a licensed social worker and chemical dependency counselor, however, for the last several years her focus has been on her children, and helping run their business, Green Touch Irrigation. Being new to the community, Jessie was looking for ways to get to know more people and establish Baltimore as their “home.” When a new secretary was needed for The Baltimore Festival, she felt this was a great opportunity to participate in something special. Jessie is thankful to be working alongside a great group of people who are committed to making the Festival an event for all to enjoy.
