Let's do the auction up good this year to raise lots of money for the festival, gazebo and the community projects. You can see what grew from last years auction for all of the community projects began from the fund of $230 which was collected last year. Isn't it amazing!!!!!

2nd Annual Morgan's Raid Festival - Click here for additional information
The Festival Plans are coming along fine and beginning to fall into Place. There will be booths of local artisans and craftsmen, food, blue grass & folk music, door prizes, 50/50 drawings and much more! The entertainment schedule is posted on the festival website posted for your viewing.

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. Hope to see you at the Festival!

Memorial Park with Gazebo
In conjunction to the Morgan's Raid Festival, The Harrisville Society of Friends is beginning to construct a Memorial Park and Gazebo. The Gazebo will be used for the grand stage and entertainment at the festival. Other uses for the gazebo will be for summer music concerts, Easter egg hunts for the children, Memorial Day Celebrations, Presentation of Contest Prizes, Awards and Certificates, Weddings, etc.! There are many things that are within the memorial park plans. Once completed, the park will have: Gazebo, Flag Pole with Light, Memorial Monument, Water Fountain, Christmas Tree with Lighting, Benches, Bulletin Board, Chimes, and much more! Keep checking back on this website for updates and pictures of the park's progress.
