The Wayne County Historical Society's Harvest Festival 2009 is off to a good start. Community support is outstanding, according to event chair Juan Espino, shown with the Dime Bank's Maureen Beilman and festival committee member Kay Stephenson. The picture chosen for this year's commemorative program is an old post card of a steamer on Lake Ladore, and in addition to purchasing tickets, many businesses and individuals are taking ads in the program, which, as usual, will feature historic vignettes and pictures.
