To The Editor:
The Morley Library Association, Inc., extends thanks to all who helped make the third annual Morley Community Summer Festival such a success. Together with the Morley Volunteer Fire Department, the Morley Wesleyan Church and the Heritage Grist Mill, the hamlet of Morley had events taking place in several locations on Friday afternoon and evening, and again on Saturday.
The Morley Community Summer Festival was expanded again this year with good food, music, vendors, demonstrations and informational booths, and childrens activities. Open Houses were held at the Morley Library with a showing of early Morley photos, the Heritage Grist Mill and the Morley Wesleyan Church giving local residents an opportunity to tour these historic buildings. New this year, tours were offered at the historic Trinity Chapel with a large number of area residents taking this opportunity to visit this beautiful old building.
The lucky winners of the Morley Library Association, Inc. raffle announced during the Festival were Ted Wisner winning the SLU season hockey tickets and Bill Kovach winning the $100 Price Chopper gift card. Jan Felt won the $100 Lottery Tree, while Jim Sanderson was the winner of the $100 Walmart gift card. Other winners drawn included Elli Donaldson for the certificate from TJ Toyota for a car detailing, Bill Longshore won a Black & Decker leaf blower and Mary Denny won the Snells Canton Citgo station $25 gift certificate.
The proceeds of the raffle and the Ice Cream Social will help fund the on-going upgrades being made to the Morley Library while the proceeds from food served by the Morley Fire Department and the pancake breakfast at the Morley Wesleyan Church on Saturday will help those organizations fund their various activities.
Plans are already underway to make next years Festival bigger and better, involving local and area groups and businesses in a true community event.
