Plans Set For Annual Campbellsport Firemen's Picnic And Parade
The tradition of the Campbellsport Volunteer Fire Department's (CFD) picnic and parade, celebrated annually on In-dependence Day, is em-bedded in most area residents' memories as much as the rolling hills that surround this quaint village. Fireworks, food, music, and the large parade are just a few of the traditions passed down from generation to generation.
People from all over the state flock to this area to celebrate the Fourth of July and to support the CFD who are celebrating their 112th year in service.
The fire department and many other organizations have been working hard since July 5th, 2015, to make sure this year's celebration is a success. Many of the great traditional events, such as the waterfights, the fine entertainment and the parade, will be continued. Every year brings some new and exciting events.

Community Meeting Discusses Possible Upcoming School District Referendum
More than 30 interested community members gathered in the Campbell-sport Media Center on Monday, June 27, for an update on the upcoming school district referendum. Architectural firm Somer-ville and CD Smith presented an overview of the progress made by their teams, the school board and the newly formed Core Action Team (CAT). The CAT is a group of community members, volunteering their time to help guide the district through the referendum.
The meeting started with an overview of the priorities of the project: replace the 1938 portion of the building, address safety and security, and ensure curriculum needs. Somerville also gave a summary of how this list was derived: through their observation of the facilities, interviewing teachers, administration and school board members and assessment of the district needs.
