The 32nd Ridge Spring Harvest Festival is during this month, October 24-26 with the Community Service on the 12th and the Beauty Pageant on the 19th.  The promoters of the festival went down memory lane to give insight into the first Harvest Festival, especially finding the photo of  Sen. Thurmond who came and hung around to meet all.  (“I got to meet him, too,” said one promoter, Harriet Householder.)

The Harvest Festival has continued to this day with games, bingo, parades, car show, country store, parades, cake and pie contest and more.  Everyone is invited to come join in.

Anyone recognize the building in the background that is now the new and refurbished library?
