    Co-Chairs of this year’s Founder’s Day is Donna Coomer and Ted Little.  The two along with the other Charlestown Beautification Committee (CBC) members promise lots of fun with some new exciting events and a guarantee of the fun from favorite events.
    Events leading up to the two-days filled with fun in Greenway Park this year will include a Pork Chop Dinner and Auction, Street Dance, Prince and Princess Pageant and a Balloon Glow and Race.
