I'd like to send a great big kudos to all the area people involved in all of our festivals, fairs and activities for jobs well done. There is always something going on, and their hard work is appreciated. We must realize the many hours of time that go into our small-town festivals. Year after year, some of the same people work hard so others can enjoy the offerings. Illustration
