JUNE 6, 2007
A Thursday night storm made for some wet conditions, but didn’t wash out the 11th annual Marion Chingawassa Days festivities. While the Marion National Bank barbecue, a performance by the Callahan Band, and the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest Friday were moved to Marion High School, the rest of the events went on as scheduled.
