My wife Jean and her Civic Club buddies were working the Rotary Fries booth last evening and posed for this action photo (l to r – Joan, Jean, Judi and Marilyn).  While it was rainy, they had fun while volunteering for a good cause. Now I am hungry for some of those great fries!

Civic Club at Rotary Fries Booth at Garrett County Agriculture Fair

Speaking of the fair, I drive by the Garrett County fairgrounds a few times a day and it seems from the full parking lot that attendance is booming this year.  Wednesday evening rain aside, I think the weather has definitely been cooperating in getting people out to the fair.

Today’s events at the Fair include a pedal tractor pull, beef showmanship, the truck drag race, and Restless Heart for the evening entertainment. Admission price is $15 for all rides, attractions and track events. View the Full Fair Schedule Here.

The Women’s Networking Happy Hour is today from 5:00pm-7pm at Black Bear Tavern.

A new grant award from the Federal Department of Transportation (DOT) will 100%-fund the construction of eight corporate hangars at the Garrett County Airport. This is good news as the airport is important to local citizens and businesses and it had run out of hangar space.
