64th Annual Stanford Community Day a success
STANFORDVILLE — With a slight hint of fall in the air, the 64th Annual Stanford Community Day attracted a large crowd to the Stanford Grange on Route 82.
Everyone present seemed excited to bid farewell to the summer, to gather together and enjoy the lovely weather, and to partake in games, food, entertainment and vendors. There were soccer games, baseball games, a bounce house and a performance by Jackie the Magician.
Music played throughout the day, with performers including the Stissing Mountain High School Band, Not Donut Records and the Red Barn Band. There were also about two dozen vintage cars and trucks on display.
The Stanford Grange #808 had its annual chicken barbecue with dinners ready at noon. Also offered were breakfast and hamburgers and hot dogs, plus a snack bar. Various foods could be found at booths peppered throughout the event.
Remarks were made by Stanford Grange President Kathleen Fallon and town Supervisor Wendy Burton; a dedication was also made of the Oliver J. Ornton Pavilion.
The day ended with a dinner presented by the Stanford Fire Company to benefit Ukraine, ending with an ice cream social. At 8 p.m. a spectacular display of fireworks ended a perfect day.
