Fond memories made at Founder’s Day



For other residents, Founder’s Day is a way to introduce their business.

Lazondra Davis, Chalestown resident and owner of Zondy’s Smelly Gelly’s, said she worked for two days straight cooking and creating about 88 gel candles in hopes of selling a few at Founder’s Day. Davis said since she doesn’t have a website yet for her at-home business, festivals and word of mouth are her only form of business.

By Saturday evening, Davis said sales whittled down her merchandise to only a few left.

“Not only does my business get recognition at festivals like Founder’s Day, I get to see old friends and meet new ones” Davis said. 

Other Founder’s Day events included the Founder’s Day Parade, two-on-two basketball, a Backyard Classic Car Show, a cake walk, a Hula Hoop and Bubble Gum Contest and a Prince and Princess Pageant. The honorary Founder’s Day 2013 Queen crown was awarded to Charlestown High School senior Marissa Knebel, 18, who is also a volunteer on the Charlestown Beautification Committee. Rhys Duncan, 6, was chosen as this year’s 2013 Founder’s Day prince and Kaliegh Hagan, 6, was selected as the 2013 Founder’s Day princess.

The three-day Founder’s Day festival concluded with a firework display over Greenway Park on Saturday evening.
