A New Year….

News
January always seems like one of the longest months of the year; however this year it seems to have flown by. I think it's because we've only experienced a true taste of winter the last couple of weeks. We've kicked off our year already with our general meeting on January 9th! However it's way too cold outside to get too much done; so you won't hear a lot from us until Spring. If you're looking for an advanced list we hope to have those posted soon, so check back often. Save the Date for September 16-18, 2016 and join us for another fair. "Keep Calm & Plow On"

Another Fair Weekend comes to an End…

Fair, News
It's always sad to see another Fair weekend has come and gone. Our volunteers work so hard every year to prepare for Fair weekend, it's a bit of a disappointment when the weekend comes to a close. Despite the rain we had Saturday, it was another successful year! We kicked off the weekend with a great performance from R&R Pet Paradise with their Power Paws Show. Saturday started with a down pour and the beginning of the parade. Thanks to all those that braved the rain to watch & participate in our parade.         One of the exciting displays at the Fair this year was the Zoo to You Exhibit & the BMX Bike Show. Both displays were certainly a hit with the younger crowd! [caption id="attachment_193"…
