Dozens of area residents made the trip to the capital for the eighth annual Wyoming County Day at the Legislature on Monday.
“It’s gone very well,” said Christy Laxton, one of the organizers of the event. “The good weather brought a lot of people out.
“The legislators and staff have been very complimentary,” she added. “They say ‘we love Wyoming County’ and ‘you have the best day down here.’ They really make us feel welcome.”
“Wyoming County Day gives our residents a chance to show who we are,” said County Commission President Jason Mullins.
There were 32 vendors set up in the Rotunda of the Capital, Laxton reported.
“We served about 2,000 people and 5,000 bites of food,” said Dale Stewart, an event organizer who dished up morning snacks and lunch time sandwiches and salads with the help of Doris Allen and Susan Allen.
Representatives of both Westside and Wyoming East high schools and numerous organizations were on hand.
Former Division of Highways supervisors for the county, David Cox and Oliver Stewart, were honored by the Legislature.
Activities wrapped up with a reception at the Governor’s Mansion.
