-- Beverly Major, 1992 Harvest Festival Chairperson
On May 27, 1992, Mayor C. David Sawyer was elected by the General Assembly as a Family Court Judge from the Eleventh Judicial Circuit. After serving as mayor for almost 10 years, he submitted his resignation effective October 31, 1992. Judge Sawyer's numerous contributions, tireless efforts, and undying devotion to this community are invaluable and very much appreciated. He was presented a plaque during the festivities.
Plans were announced for a new fire station on Green Street, near the Town Square across the railroad tracks.
The first Harvest Festival Auction was held on Thursday evening, October 22nd in the Civic Center. A Friday afternoon Painted Pony Race was held for the children beside the gazebo. Hand held fans were given away throughout the day on Saturday to carry out the theme.
Part of the proceeds from this festival were used for the two scholarships, which were increased form $1500 to $2000.
