Preliminary Plans have begun
for the 1st Annual Morgan's Raid Festival that is to be held
in September 2003. The date has been confirmed and is scheduled
for September 20 & 21, 2003. There are many details and
plans yet to be made so keep checking back to this page for updates
as we progress. There will be booths of local artisans and craftsmen,
food, blue grass & folk music, door prizes, 50/50 drawings
and much more! An entertainment
schedule will be posted to give the line-up as it is being
developed! So check back to this page to watch its development!
We plan on making it a fun day
by the participants dressing in clothing of the civil war - 1860's
era, having apple cider, pumpkin pies, and many other items that
would have been found during that era. We hope to have displays
of some of the local history to help people learn more of the
part that Harrisville played in the Civil War.
In addition to the existing fund-raising
projects the Harrisville Society of Friends Club will be
doing other types of fund-raisers to help raise necessary funds.
It will take a great amount of funds for advertising and promotion.
Donated funds will be accepted. Donations can be sent to:
The Harrisville Society of Friends Club, P.O. Box 43, Harrisville,
We also need volunteers, helpers
and experienced people to help with the planning and work. If
you wish to help with the festival in any way please contact

a success. Any help will greatly be appreciated!
