From Elaine Calderon, Chairperson, Darlington Apple Festival 2015:
It’s that time again and as a resident of Darlington I want to make you aware that this year’s festival will be held Saturday, October 3, from 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. I also invite you to join the committee at our monthly meetings, which are held on the second Tuesday of every month, except August, November and December, two meetings in September, the 8th and the 22th in the Wilson Community Center at 7.P.M.
Road closures will affect residents in town significantly. In an effort to keep traffic flowing as smoothly as possible on the morning of the festival, we direct traffic on Shuresville Road going towards Quaker Road and on School Road going towards Rte 161. At 8 A.M. we close Shuresville Road and redirect the traffic on School Road to run towards Old Quaker Road. At the close of the festival, vendors are allowed to bring vehicles back onto the festival grounds at 5:30P.M. when we direct traffic on Shuresville Road to run towards Rte. 161.
We have made some changes in that we have a new website and a facebook site, go online and check us out!
Thank you, in advance, to those involved for the use of your property and for your patience on this very important day for the community. I hope you are aware of the ways in which our community benefits from this one day festival. I have been told that many of our local organizations could not function without the funds that they raise this day in October. These organizations are the glue that makes this small town a community and without them we wouldn’t be much of a community at all.
