Growth of Community Day Expected to Continue

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

In its sixth year as a community-based not-for-profit function, Community Day continues to grow in both participation and hopefully financial results.
Organized in 2004 with the hopes of providing family-oriented enjoyment and a fundraiser for local, non-profit organizations, Community Day took in almost $36,000 for the 11 participating groups.

Each year the event, held at Ramey Memorial Park, has increased in group activity and revenue as 18 participants split a total of $85,649.74 last year.
The sixth annual Community Day will be held Saturday at the park with a total of 22 groups taking part.
Veterans organizations, emergency response squads, and other community-based groups will be selling a variety of items and sponsoring different events during this year’s Community Day, which will begin at 10:30 a.m.
Organizers are encouraging the public to come early, stay late, and enjoy the event, which will include a wide range of musical entertainment, including popular local acts and bands well known nationally.
Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at either location of Salyersville National Bank, host of Community Day, or at the gate on Saturday.
Those in charge of Community Day are encouraging everyone to bring lawn chairs and asking people to park in and around downtown Salyersville due to limited Ramey Park space.
A trolley will be running from SNB’s two locations to the park to provide transportation. Ramey Memorial Park can also be accessed by foot from downtown Salyersville via a bridge located near the Log Cabin Complex.
