Moriah officials praise Labor Day events

PORT HENRY - The 120th annual Moriah Labor Day Weekend celebration was a huge success, according to the town board.

The Moriah town board took time from its September meeting to praise the Moriah Chamber of Commerce for sponsoring the event and note the significance of the annual celebration to the community.

"I'd like to thank Jack Woods (chamber president) and his volunteers on a great Labor Day celebration," trustee Tim Garrison said. "I know my family really enjoyed it."

The two-day event Sept. 4 and 5 featured a parade, fireworks, music, and plenty of activities for all ages.

Supervisor Tom Scozzafava pointed out the work and expense involved in putting on the annual event. "They did a great job," Scozzafava said of the chamber. "A lot of time and work went into it. It gets more and more expensive every year - the bands and fireworks cost a lot of money. The community appreciates their efforts."

Moriah's Labor Day celebration was originally planned by the Port Henry Fire Department.

The parade grand marshal in 2010 was Kathy Wagstaff, a chamber volunteer.
