Fireworks July 11

Even though the Red , White, and Blueberry festival was cancelled, the annual fireworks sponsored by O’Bryon Eye Associates will go on as planned. They will be held July 11 beginning around 9:15 p.m.

Festival, football camp canceled

With great reluctance, the Reynoldsville Community Association has announced that it is canceling the 2020 Red, White, and Blueberry Festival scheduled for July 10 and 11 due to uncertainty about COVID-19.

“There’s a lot that goes into planning an annual festival, a lot that has to be done early,” said festival chairman Sam Bundy. “There were just too many unknowns for us to lock down everything we needed in time fore the July event,” he added.

Jacob d’Argy of the Snyder-d’Argy Funeral Home in Reynoldsville was set to host an outdoor movie the evening of July 10, but that has been postponed, not canceled.

“When I asked him (d’Argy) if he would host a movie later in the summer, he replied ‘of course,’” Bundy said. 

Word has also been received that the Paul Butler Football Camp slated for July 11 has also been canceled due to the current situation

Right now, plans are still going forward with the Race for Reynoldsville 5-K Run on July 11. That event was moved from its original date of Memorial Day, May 25, due to uncertainty about COVID-19.

5-K race coming to Reynoldsville

Memorial Day 2020 will see a new event in the borough: The Race for Reynoldsville.

Winslow Township resident Leanne Buhite-Waring is working with a committee of people to bring the event to Reynoldsville. She said she hopes it will raise the community awareness of two projects- the veteran’s memorial park and the Reynoldsville Pool renovations. She’s also hoping to raise money for both organizations.

The race will include a 5-K event and a 1-K walk/fun run.
Students at the C. G. Johnson Elementary School will help design the t-shirts. 

Buhite and her committee will be canvassing local businesses and industries for financial support. An account has been created at S and T Bank for the race and she hopes will become an annual event.
