She and her sister Kiera Tuttle, 4, and her brother Logan Tuttle, 6, were at the festivities with their mom, Karen Tuttle and dad, Dan Tuttle. They have lived in the township for three years.

Displays of the township's history were crowd favorites and lines snaked around the building as township residents waited to eat free hot dogs and hamburgers Saturday.

Proceeds from a 50-50 and a silent auction will go to the renovation of the old Township Hall. About $60,000 is needed and about $15,000 has been raised, so far.

Friday night, about 100 people played bingo with celebrity callers Lucy Ann Lance, Ginny Patton Moss and Thayrone from WAAM radio.
