Buckhannon welcomes Methodist Conference attendees
June 7, 2018
Dear West Virginia United Methodist Annual Conference Attendees:
On behalf of our entire City of Buckhannon family including our 85 dedicated employees who are here to serve, I bring you warmest greetings from City Hall. To those of you returning to Buckhannon to attend this year’s annual Conference from June 7 through 10, we’re so happy to have you back. To those of you perhaps attending your very first Conference, we’re most pleased to welcome you to our wonderful community.
When you’re not busy with Conference matters, you will find many fun things to do in our beautiful downtown. From sampling the many culinary wonders in our many fine restaurants and cafes to checking out our cool public arts and flora to hitting our terrific River Trail and parks- there truly is something here for everyone.
Walk our newly completed sidewalk loop in Jawbone Park and visit with Buckongahelas & Mahonegon created by the late, great Ross Straight. Check out the alien atop our Colonial Theatre! We just completed reinstallation of the old marquee that lights up the night sky. Be sure to take some selfies with our best pal, Wesleyan alum “Lurch” and our gi-normous “French Creek Freddie” statues! Pose in front of the monkeys’ mural in Trader’s Alley. We have a lot of zany fun here!
All of us in Buckhannon hope you will enjoy a most excellent and productive Conference. If there’s anything we can do to make your visit more pleasurable, drop by City Hall at 70 East Main Street or phone us at (304) 472-1651. Perhaps I will be able to greet you personally during the community dinner you are graciously sponsoring on Friday evening, June 8. Enjoy Buckhannon!
David W. McCauley, Mayor
