Harrisville Community Day thank yous extended

HARRISVILLE — Though it was a very hot day for the Harrisville Community Day on July 4, the parade was a great success.

I want to thank all who participated. And a big thank you goes to Joe Lowers for helping me with the parade, and thank you to L.D. Williams for putting on the signs for the cars.

Thank you to Troy Allen Chevrolet for bringing three cars up from Slippery Rock for us to use. Chad and Heather Krenn did an awesome job doing the pet parade.

Thanks to Russ Dunlap for setting up the tractors for the parade and displaying them at the park.

My very small committee did a great job on the Chinese auction thanks to LD. and Amanda Williams. Thank you to Michelle Adams for making the picture display for everyone to see. I think Zambelli Fireworks did a great job.

I can still hear the people clapping and cheering in the field where everyone was watching them.

The only sad thing was we could not find anyone to park cars this year.

I want to thank all the business for their donations.

Thank you to Dave and Carolyn Carr and to Gary Hughes for the pictures of the town way back in the old days.

Thank you Bob Barnes for selling candy bars.

Thanks to all for making it a big success.

We are done for another year.

If anyone wants to take over the event for next year, please let me know or call the borough building and let them know.

Council meets

Harrisville Council met on July 2, some of the following was discussed, weight limits going up on some streets, and it will not affect any businesses getting deliveries.

Dollar General wants to tap into the sewage so the opening is being pushed back to the end of July to first week in August. I will let you know when the opening will be when I am told. Also discussed was putting signs up on the pavilions and anyone wanting to their name, a loved one or even a business on the sign can do so for $50 each for a spot on the sign, this is to raise money for the park to get in flush toilets, which will cost around $80,000.

On the sign, the names will be there forever. If you have any questions please talk to anyone on town council.

Once we get everything organized on this project then you will be notified in the newsletter of when and who to get in touch with.
