The Charlestown Beautification Committee has been busy making the final preparations and plans for the 16th annual Founder’s Day Festival. This year the festival will celebrate the theme of All American Weekend. This year the festival will be held in a new location as the Family Activities Park (across from the Charlestown High School Football Field) will be the host location. The Founders Day All American Weekend is set for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 23-25. Founder’s Day will feature live entertainment, arts and crafts booths, vendors, a parade and 5K run, just to name a few. The popular festival will conclude with a spectacular fireworks extravaganza on Saturday, June 25 beginning at 10 p.m.
The theatre students at Floyd Central are getting ready to hit the road with their mammoth production of the Broadway musical, 42ND STREET. The students were invited to present the show at the International Thespian Festival in Lincoln Nebraska the last week of June. To prepare for the monumental task of taking such a large production on the road, they will present 42ND STREET two more times at Floyd Central for the local public. Community members are invited to the performances on June 16 and 17 at 7:30 PM.
