Come Check Out The County Fair!

Unfortunately, we had no volunteers and as I cannot be in two places at once we had to forego participating in the parade.


The exhibits have been Judge as Monday. As you go to the fair and browse around you will see ribbons which will show participation in the contest and ranking.


Congrats to everyone.


Our Educational Exhibit.
