An exciting event will take place next Saturday, June 26th at 11:00 a.m. at Edith Barill Riverfront Park in Star City, WV (one of our favorite access points to the Mon River!).
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held for ten new Star City History Plaques placed strategically around the park. Mayor Reid and our project director are two of the speakers. See attached flier and press release, and feel free to share far and wide!
The Upper Mon River Association received a WV Humanities Council Grant for the project, with matching funds provided by Morgantown North Rotary, the River Town Program, and the Town of Star City. The research and design team includes: Project Director Nathan Wuertenberg, Plaque Designer Jake Vargas, and team members Frank Jernejcic, Vaike Haas, Dave Smaldone and Mary Wimmer. Plaques were fabricated by Alan Laick at Laick Design, Fairchance, PA.
