Warnerettes founder receives Farmington Historical Commission award

first_imgGovernor Warner Mansion volunteer Sharon Bernath on Wednesday received the Farmington Historical Commission’s Dick Carvell Award.Historical Commission chair Laura Myers presents the Dick Carvell Award to Sharon Bernath Wednesday during the City of Farmington holiday party. (contributed photo)Presented during the City of Farmington’s holiday party at the Huron River Hunting & Fishing Club in Farmington, the award recognizes someone who has demonstrated exceptional commitment to the preservation of Farmington history. Among other community activities, Carvell was a long-time member of the Historical Commission and involved with the Governor Warner Mansion from the time it became a city-owned museum.Historical Commission chair Laura Myers said Carvell recruited Bernath, who helped bring back the monthly porch parties, started Children’s Day and oversees the flea market during Founders Festival, organizes and writes scripts for Ghost Night, and runs a moveable gift shop the Warner General Store. The retired school librarian often volunteers to give tours, especially for the many children who tour the Mansion each year.But Bernath’s “crowning achievement,” Myers said, has been her founding of the Warnerettes Parasol Drill Team: Sharon Bernath beats the bass drum, keeping time for the Warnerettes Parasol Drill team during the 2014 Greater Farmington Founders Festival parade. “One day she mentioned that it would be nice to have a parasol drill team of women dressed as suffragettes to march in the Founders day parade. Within a few weeks she enlisted a group of women and ordered hats, umbrellas, and personally made the sashes with the lettering “Votes for Women”.“That first year, a dozen well-rehearsed women stepped out in long black skirts, white blouses, and neckties to march, twirl parasols, campaign for voting rights, and support our own Fred Warner for governor. Sharon herself brings up the rear pounding out the rhythm on a big bass drum.”Within a year, Bernath had 27 women on the team. The Warnerettes now march in Northville’s Victorian parade in the fall and Farmington’s lighted Christmas parade in December, with costumed women and children carrying signs and handing out candy and a Model T Ford carrying Fred Warner himself.To learn more about the Dick Carvell Award, learn about previous winners and the Historical Commission, visit farmgov.com.

Manchester end STETHS Headley Cup winning streak

first_imgManchester High School ended St Elizabeth Technical High School’s (STETHS) five-year hold on the ISSA/GraceKennedy Headley Cup title at the STETHS Sports Complex yesterday with a five-wicket win. Manchester, who were required to chase 162 for victory, after dismissing STETHS for 196 shortly after lunch, reached the target with about 10 minutes to spare. Javardi Francis 53 not-out, top-scored for Manchester along with Andre Morgan, who provided an anchor role with 45 runs. Roberto Simpson (3-19) and Andre McCarthy (2-25) picked up most wickets for STETHS. Earlier in STETHS’ second innings, captain Zavier Burton only added one run to his overnight score, to top score with 36. Wavel Anniford (4-79) and Jaheem Bartley (3-49) were the pick of the Manchester bowlers. In the first innings, STETHS were dismissed for 187 after winning the toss and elected to bat. Lennox Simpson top-scored with 55. Andre Morgan (4-29) and Jaheen Bartley (4-62) were the main destroyers for Manchester. In reply, Manchester were all out for 214 runs, getting a lead of 28 runs. A 133-run, seventh wicket partnership between batsmen Morgan (85) and Wavel Anniford (56) rescued Manchester, who were once at 45 – 6. Andre McCarthy was the pick of the STETHS bowlers ­grabbing five for 29. Coach of Manchester, Barry Barnes, was thrilled to break his alma mater’s winning spell, as he did in 2013, and credited the win to a brilliant first innings performance. “I think we won it from we were 40-odd for six and the captain (Morgan) and young Anniford batted almost the entire day yesterday to bring us across the line, getting first innings,” Barnes said. “Today we were under tremendous pressure. I think today was the hardest day of cricket because when you’re in the backyard of STETHS where we call the ‘Lion’s Den’, to beat them chasing 163, I think the youngsters have done well and I must say hats off to them, as well as the entire Manchester fraternity including the principal and chairman, who give us all the support that we needed. I just hope they will continue with this programme,” he added.last_img read more
