In our small community the Fair is the event of the year. I am ready. I am rested. I am ready to eat Fair food and lots of it. My warm sweaters are packed. Long days, late nights...crowds of people, traffic jams...I can't wait. Bring it on!
I will be working in the building which houses the artwork and projects of our area schools.
It is always refreshing to see the talent, the creativity, and positive energy of our youth. I will visit with old friends, congratulate children on a job well done and watch families as they celebrate with their children. When not working I will check out the other exhibits including the quilts, photography, needlecrafts, animals, vegetables, flowers...and I will eat my way through the fair starting with cotton candy, soup in a bread bowl, fried dough, apple crisp with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream and homemade fudge. Then there are the rides - the ferris wheel, the merry-go-round, the bumper cars. I look forward to the fair all year long - I feel like a kid again as I run around the fairgrounds, excited to be there.
Here are just a few examples of the incredible artwork done by the students...
