On Saturday, May 1, WGLS-FM will broadcast live from Harrison Township Day at Ella Harris Park.

In between, there will be amusements, crafts and vendors, a “Harrison Idol” contest, and other entertainment.

“At Rowan Radio, we stress the importance of community service to our students,” says station general manager Frank Hogan.

“Opportunities such as Earth Day and Harrison Township Day give our students the chance to get involved in our local communities and, at the same time, also learn what goes into broadcasting live events.”
