“Givers of Harmony”
This year's Harmony Labor Day Fair book is dedicated to John Morrison. John became involved in the Patriarchs Club Fair in the early 60’s. He and his family spent many hours each summer preparing for the Labor Day Fair, which at that time was a one-day event. John helped wherever needed, from putting up fence
to cooking at the Chicken Bar-B-Que.
In the early 70’s John became more involved with the Club by serving as vice president with Skip Cobb as president. They searched and found carnival rides for the fair. The “resurrection” of these old rides was a huge undertaking by Skip, John and the other Club members. The rides operated for many years.
In the later years as the fair transitioned to the present site, John spent many hours with his equipment helping to clear and shape the new fairgrounds. He was proud to be a member and even in his elderly years, John and his wife Pat checked on the daily progress of the fair’s preparation throughout the summer.
John proudly donated a chainsaw each year to the Club’s raffle and also sponsored various events of the fair including the horse show.
John loved the fair as much as he loved Harmony itself.
