Large crowds turned out in force for the 36th annual Old Time Saturday festivities as cooler temperatures gave Farmersville residents the opportunity to help raise money for the library, civic center and Senior Citizens Center Oct. 3.

“Saturday was just about as good as it gets,” OTS Chairperson Chad Whitaker said. “It was a good turnout and the new things we added were a great draw. There was a very generous spirit that seems to be found throughout the day.”
