Members of the 111th Attack Wing joined thousands of spectators and local families gathered and wandering through three of Horsham Township's beautiful parks during the annual Horsham Day June 6, 2015, here.

The event kicked off at 8 a.m. with a 3.2-mile or walk around Kohler Park in Horsham while more than 60 businesses and professional organizations began to set up display booths directly across the street at Deep Meadow Park. 

Horsham Township and the Greater Horsham Chamber of Commerce have hosted Horsham Day since 1970, said George A. Davis, a Horsham Day event volunteer. He said that this might be the last year for such events as the now-famous Cow Chip Bingo simply due to the funding requirements, while the ever popular softball tournaments and youth fishing contest continue to grow.

Pamela D. Tuckey, a Horsham Day event volunteer, said that the fishing pond next to the Horsham Fire Station in Kohler Park was empty and was just stocked with fish in time for today's youth fishing derby.

Tuckey said that the youth fishing contest was for children ages 15 and under and prizes would be given out throughout the event for the largest species of fish in each category.

She finished by saying that local Horsham families, friends, neighbors, volunteers and non-profit organizations come together for the daylong event which flourishes and feed off community involvement and makes Horsham a stronger community.
