The Family Fun Days has been a tradition since 1977. What is it that keeps people coming back year after year?

“Probably the fellowship,” Coal Grove Betterment Club secretary Carol Gool said. “And we always have some good entertainment.”

The annual event is sponsored by the betterment club and proceeds will help pay for a new storage facility for

the village.

The grand finale will be Monday evening’s fireworks.
