The Harvest Fair was revived in the Bicentennial Year to restore the tradition of the Morgan Grove Fair, a highly successful week-long event still remembered by some Shepherdstown residents. The Harvest Fair has grown larger each year since 1976, but it still remains an opportunity for amateur hobbyists and craft- smen in the Shepherdstown area to display and sell home-madi crafts and home-grown produce. Unlike many craft fairs, the Shepherdstown Harvest Fair booths are staffed only by local residents and by local organizations such as the 4-H Homemaker Extension Clubs church groups, and garden clubs. Local dance groups and musicians perform during the day in the blocked-off street. The Historic Shepherdstown Commission, which sponsors the Harvest Fair, is making a special effort this year to preserve the unique atmosphere of a small-town crafts fair by asking exhibitors to wear colonial costumes, to decorate their booths in a colonial manner, and to display and sell only home-made or home-grown products. The commission has requested that no flea market items or items made from kits be included in the fair. Any. local resident or organization wishing a booth is asked to call Mrs. Charles Bosley at 876-2108 or Mrs. Georgia Lee McElhaney at 876- 6745 to reserve seats. Each booth is allotted ten feet but more space can be reserved if necessary. A fee of one dollar is charged for each booth space, and each exhibitor is asked to supply his own tables and chairs. Booths must be set up before 10 a.m. since King Street is closed to automobiles after that time. In case of rain booths will be set up in the first floor room of the War Memorial Building. 52,300 Witnesses At Grand Finale Members of the local congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses were among a crowd of 42,300 persons assembled at R.F.K. Stadium in Washington, D.C., Sunday, June 16, for the finale of the "Victorious Faith" International Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses. Daniel Sydlik of New York, spoke on the subject, "Jesus Christ -- Victorious King With Whom Nations Must Reckon." Discussing the "social en- vlronment" in society today, Sydlik said things are in a bad way. "We might think of the day of reckoning that is approaching because of the decline in good morals that is taking place in all lands," Sydilk said. Speaking of another area of concern, the arms race, Sydllk said the United Nations has offered no inducement for slowing it down and the nations rely upon military preparedness for safety. Then, there are citi- - zens in every city who think they can run the government better than any official in office.
