Free Community Day will be celebrated in Hartland

HARTLAND – The Town of Hartland will celebrate a free Community Day from 1 to 4 p.m. next Sunday in the Town Park on Ridge Road.

“Two years ago, we had our bicentennial celebration, and it was a pretty successful event, and everyone said, ‘We should do this again,’ ” recalled Town Supervisor W. Ross Annable.

“Well, that was a big undertaking, but we thought we’d try and put something together to establish some community spirit.

“Our town clerk, Cindy Boyler, spearheaded this.”

“So, we’ll have some music, a farmers’ market, some crafters and some food vendors, and if it takes off, maybe we’ll try and do this a couple of times a year,” he said. “We’ll see what type of response we get.”

Two bands – the Good Ol’ Boys of Western New York and the Blues Band – will perform live music.

The farmers’ market will offer fresh-picked local produce, ranging from corn to cucumbers and berries, while local bakeries also will sell their home-baked offerings.

At least a dozen local crafters have signed on, featuring; dried flowers and herbs, glassware, wood products, stained glass, soaps and lotions and artisanal cheeses.

Vendors are still welcome to set up a table for free with one stipulation – they must be from Hartland.

In addition, the Snack Shack will be open, selling hot dogs and hamburgers, and Pete’s Treat will sell ice cream.

Also, caterer Keith Bond will offer a variety of ingredients for patrons to make up their own plates.

Everyone is asked to bring a chair.

Those interested in a vendor’s table should call 735-7179. Vendors set up at noon.
