It was either drizzling or threatening to rain all evening. Here, Dustin Freshour and Cassandra Buckhannon, both of Gilmer County, sit on the bridge awaiting the show. CELEBRATION'S PROUD PAGE SPONSOR- Pictured here is State Delegate& House Majority Leader, Brunt Boggs (Dem.-34th Delegate District), who enjoys this festivity every year, and proudly sponsors his page. A GENEROUS OHIO FAMILY - Robert Stout (second from left) and his family and friends are responsible for the phenomenal Sound & Light Show each year at the Cedarville Homecoming and Fourth of July Celebration. Moreover, this year, the night-time show was one of their best ever, very patriotic and lasted for about one hour on Sat. night, July 4, 2009 in the field next to the firehouse. When interviewed, the Stouts, who are a family with deep Cedarville roots, said that this performance is the highlight of their year-- each year. From left to right are Earl Thompson, (Robert Stout), Pete Kramp, Brian Johnston, Shane Dunn, and Kelly Sponaugle. The Stout family came all the way from Bowling Green, OH -- an eight-plus hour trip -- to put on the free Night Light Show -- they need some kind of Gilmer County commendation for doing sol Thus, thanks to Bob and family for providing so much pleasure for so many area people! DHC, Sr., Pub. GETTING A GOOD PLACE TO VIEW THE NIGHT PROGRAM D Finding a dry spot to relax and await the start of the 4th of July's Night Light Show was easy for these early birds who sat clown on the Old Belknap (and Hacker) Store's front platform. Pictured above from left to right are: Tiffany Montgomery; her 5 1/2 month-old son, Matt; Matt Montgomery, Sr.; Cameron Bedunah, 2; Tracy Pyles, and Jeremy Montgomery, all of Sand Fork. FUND-RAISING FOR THE CEDARVILLE NIGHT LIGHT SHOW- For Tina Fisher Mollohan (above), one of the singing Fisher & Company family band members, it's fun to help out the other town association's volunteers by taking in donations to help defray the costs of the Annual Night Light Show. The Stout family spends thousands of dollars to put it on, so visitors are asked for a "free will" offering in order to help out in these recessionary times. FAMILY FUN & OUTING --The Cedarville Homecoming gives many families a chance to get together in comfortable and friendly surroundings in order to enjoy themselves. Here (in photo to the right), Charlie Yates of Holt's Run lets his granddaughter, Athena Clark, 6, enjoy a ride on his shoulders, while Rondal Losh, 10, and Ronnie Losh, 6, lead the way. CHIT-CHATTING--This year's Fri.-Sat.; July 3-4 Cedarville Community Association's 17th Annual Homecoming and Fourth of July Festival gave many local residents a chance to socialize.
