Rain can't dampen spirits at local Labor Day celebration

September 6, 2011

On Monday, the 59th annual Bennetts Valley Labor Day celebration contended with a constant rain, but event planners and attendees made the best of it.
Carl Smith of the Jay Township Fire Department, who has volunteered at the event for the last 40 years, said that while attendance was down Monday, Sunday saw record attendance.
"I think it's the weather today that's keeping people away. Yesterday we sold 107 armbands, we've never sold that many before," Smith said.
