SMITHVILLE FLATS – Smithville residents are in for a fun-filled day this Saturday as the town holds its annual Smithville Day celebration.
“It’s just a good old town special event,” said David Coleman, who co-chairs the event with fellow Smithville resident BarbaraAnn Whitmore. He encourages people to come out and meet their neighbors and participate in the full slate of activities he and his fellow committee members have planned.
“It’s getting larger every year,” said Coleman, who says he has been involved with the annual event for the last 25 years.
According to Whitmore, the event will kick off with the sixth annual Smithville Day 5 K run. Registration will take place from 8:15 to 9:15 a.m. at the Fire House. The run itself will start at 9:30 a.m. at the Community Center. Last year 132 runners participated in the race, which raises money for the Genegantslet Fire Company’s building fund.
