Residents Protecting Montgomery hosted the first ever Town of Montgomery Community Day on Saturday at Benedict Farm Park.
Guests of all ages were treated to free food. The event offered hamburgers, hotdogs, cupcakes, coffee and much, much more. Those in attendance also enjoyed farming demonstrations, a raffle and live music. Talented musicians showcased their skills on guitar and a digital piano.
Children got to enjoy face painting, bobbing for apples and a pie eating contest. Throughout the day, many youngsters were caught smiling from ear to ear.
This event was an excellent opportunity for Montgomery residents to meet members of their community. Several political candidates appeared at the event. Residents Protecting Montgomery held the event as a respite from the stress caused by the two proposed warehouse projects.
“We just wanted to have a little celebration of our town because it’s so diverse and wonderful,” said Karina Tipton, co-chair of Residents Protecting Montgomery.
The event was sponsored by a number of Montgomery’s local businesses including Froehlich Farms, Iron Cafe and Twin Ponds Greenhouses. Those in attendance appeared to enjoy the Town of Montgomery Community Day.
“I think it was awesome,” said Nick Fitzpatrick, who attended the event. “It seems like everyone is really happy and everything’s going great. I hope they do it again next year.”
