On September 6, 2002 a new organization
was formed in Harrisville. The purpose of the organization is
to help make Harrisville a better place to live. Its members
can be anyone that assist the community in any way. You need
not be a resident to join the organization.
This organization was founded
by Nancy Cullen and Shari Friend to form a non-profit organization
to assist the village in ways that the other organizations, such
as the Auxiliary, Ruritans, and Lions Club, cannot provide. The
purpose is to help with community development, beautify the village,
and to create a better and safer environment. Funds raised will
be used for Christmas Lights, Landscaping, Street and Gardening
projects, Flower Contest, Town Picnic, Morgan's Raid Festival,
and many more future projects.
The organization meets on the
1st Monday of every month at 1:00 p.m. at the Ladies Auxiliary
Building. If you wish to join you can do so by attending the
next meeting or by calling 546-9915 or 546-3321.
Several fundraiser events are
scheduled for the near future. To see the fundraiser event schedule

Upcoming scheduled events sponsored
by the organization are the Flower Contest
in June and The Morgan's Raid Festival
in September. A huge project that is currently being planned
is to create a Memorial Park on the school property overlooking
the ball field. This park will have a gazebo, benches, flag pole
with light, memorial monument, water fountain, etc. Future events
will be scheduled at the gazebo such as Easter Egg hunts, Summer
music festivals, Memorial Day Events, and much more. It will
also be available for weddings by reservation and small fee.
We have a good start for the
organization but we need more members and dedicated workers to
help reach our goals. You are all welcome! For further information
you can send an email
or call 546-9915 or 546-3321.
