Some of my most memorable
fair events, besides being crowned
as the fair queen, were the Big
Wheel Races and the Fanner’s
Night. It was such a joy watching
the little “tykes” and their big
wheels and handing out ribbons
and trophies to the.victors. Far
mer’s Night was like stepping
back into the past. It was great
fun! Thanks Corey Bomgardner
for being the better half of the
wheelbarrow race!
