Even though I have been in Florida for the last two weeks on vacation, a wonderful group of volunteers have continued to accomplish projects every day even in my absence. Fair Board member Bill Chamberlain and volunteers Ed Stevens, Georgie Billings, Barbara Clark, Chuck Gaines and Mackenzie Stevens have worked many hours to saw up the trees recently cut down in the park into firewood and clean up the debris. With so much wood to split Bill Chamberlain asked Maury Mooers if he would consider loaning the use of his wood splitter to the Fair. We owe Maury a big thank you, with the loan of his wood splitter this hard job has been accomplished a lot faster. Thank you, Maury!
