CEN­TRE­VILLE — The town of Cen­tre­ville hosted a free fam­ily fun night at the wharf on Sept. 9.

A fam­ily movie, Dis­ney’s “Moana,” was shown on the lawn next to the wharf and kids were in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in a fish­ing derby. It was a way for the town to let res­i­dents know the park at the wharf was re-opened and from them to see some of the im­prove­ments to the area.

Tro­phies for win­ning fish will be pre­sented at the next town coun­cil meet­ing, but the tro­phy for the first fish caught dur­ing the derby was awarded on the spot to 5-year-old Sven DeVil­biss.

“The fish­ing derby and movie night are be­com­ing a pop­u­lar an­nual tra­di­tion, and the Town is happy and proud of the im­prove­ments to the Wharf area,” Town Coun­cil Pres­i­dent Tim McCluskey said. “We welcome all cit­i­zens to come out and en­joy this space. Fish at the water­front or launch your kayak, en­joy the play equip­ment, and the im­proved grass park area.”

The area at the wharf is still a work in progress, and the town has grant ap­pli­ca­tions in for fur­ther im­prove­ments got fur­ther en­hance­ments, McCluskey said.

Thanks is owed to the Cen­tre­ville Pub­lic Works Depart­ment for get­ting the park ready, McCluskey said. Cen­tre­ville Out­doors do­nated bait, and Cor­sica River Con­ser­vancy ran the derby. About 60 res­i­dents turned out to par­tic­i­pate in the event.
