2014 Fair Dates: Friday, June 20 and Saturday June 21

Our 2014 fair was a smashing success! We were fortunate enough that the weather held off and all events and activities went ahead as planned. Our sincere apologies to all for the delayed start of the fireworks Friday evening. There were some unforeseen circumstances that led to the display starting later than normal. The firefighters wish to pass on a HUGE thank-you to everyone who attended. We enjoy putting on the fair each and every year for the community. Here are our 2014 fair winners:
