The 2010 Calhoun County Wood Festival is over for another year. The fun part ended and the clean up was done in record time, with the streets free of debris, and equipment and booths returned to storage. Fun rides and food vendors made their way out of town to the next event.


If you noticed, the committee members were all over the place, at all hours, to make sure it was a good festival for all of us. The names of Judy Powell, Angie Hersman, Debbie King, Jim Sullivan, Jackie Blankenship, Paige Toney, Carol Sloan, Shirley Ball, Loretta Freshour, Norma Freshour, Colleen Sullivan, Bryan Toney, Joe Hersman, Michael Sullivan and Josh Stull have been mentioned before, but we list them again so you will have another chance to thank them. Then, there are the supporters who also play a part in the success of the festival: the communities, businesses and spectators.


The evening events were a tremendous hit. The streets were crowded with lawn chairs filled with people of all ages and all backgrounds. Tiny children were dancing in the street with no fear because they were surrounded by friends and neighbors who could help corral them. Older people either danced with steps of their younger years or tapped their feet in time to all kinds of music.

Thank you for the friendly welcome shown to the Morris family! The grandchildren love this place and were pleased to join me for a wagon ride. Andy Mlynek’s careful driving gave me the opportunity to have the family with me to enjoy this special time. They were in town most of the day on Saturday, riding the bull, eating hot dogs, visiting the Family History Center, pitching dimes, attending the Mud Bog, meeting the Moccasin Rangers, listening to the music, viewing the fireworks and then collapsing all over the floor in a deep sleep. Calhouners have won their hearts!

By the time you read this, I will be starting recovery from knee surgery at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown. I know I will be a success story, because God will be taking care of the details and I will be following the doctor’s orders! Thank you in advance for your continued prayers. I agree with Dr. Aya-Ay that the prayers of Calhouners are special! You can contact the Chronicle for updates.
