A Message From Your Mayor

MayorHartung-400Fall 2016 Update

Summer is ending and fall is coming which means Applefest will soon be here!

Our streets in the downtown will be full again on October 1. The Rich-Mar Rotary provides a family friendly fall festival with great food, music, crafts, all-types of vendors, and good conversation on Pittsburgh Street, Grand Avenue, and in the square with our famous flying saucer.

Time: 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

More information at http://marsapplefest.com/

There will be two stages this year for twice the entertainment with one in the town square near the flying saucer and the other up Grand Avenue in the library parking lot.

There is parking on the east side of town along East Railroad St. and Clay Avenue. There will be shuttle service from Vogel’s parking lot on Brickyard Hill and from the schools.

Mars Area Landmark and Historical Society offers rides for children and their families on a train around the perimeter of the property on Fridays throughout the Summer 10am-2pm. A donation is appreciated. It will be running during Applefest, weather permitting.

Historical Society is also open the 2nd Saturday each month 1pm-4pm, weather permitting.

It is back to school so we ask that you drive the speed limit using caution on our streets and watch for buses picking up and dropping young people off throughout our town and area.

Have a safe and enjoyable fall as we get into our school routines and see the beautiful leaves on the trees as we embrace this season. We look forward to Halloween and Thanksgiving for fun activities and family gathered that makes our community special in that we care for each other.

Take care,

 Mayor Gregg Hartung
