County fair one of the best

Published 5:50 pm Saturday, August 10, 2013

Our county fair is one of the greatest county fairs around, in my opinion.

All the people attending the fair is a testament to all the changes and activities each day.

On Aug. 26, we will take a motorcoach to an even larger fair.
