Well, fair time is almost here.

I hope you have your exhibits ready and are thinking about what you are going to bake to bring to the fair.

Just a few of our activities you won’t want to miss, besides coming to look at all the great exhibits. Our county food drive “Give from your Heart, One Can At A Time” will be held in the Farm and Home Center on Saturday, July 13 from noon to 7 p.m. Just remember to bring four non-perishable food items and recieve one free ride ticket. All the food collected will be given to Human Services and the Bread of Life, both local charities.

On Monday, July 15 at 6 p.m. on the Free Stage, we will auction off the champion food exhibits. That will be followed by the pie eating contest.

There will be 12 teams. We have some new teams this year. There are canisters around town. If you see one please contribute to your favorite team. Remember all proceeds from the pie eating contest and the food auction will go to New Directions and Hospice, both local charities.

On Tuesday, July 16, we will again be stuffing Puppy Pillows for Riley Hospital. We will begin at 11 or sooner if someone comes.

We are still in need of additional stuffing. If you have any you would like to donate, please call Janet Bedal at 663-4563.

On Wednesday, July 17 we will be having a Tasty Tomato contest. The three classes are Class 1 Salad, Class 2, Main Dish and Class 3 desserts.

I have had a few questions about this. First you must include your recipe. It must include one cup of tomatoes. This can be fresh tomatoes, canned tomatoes or tomato soup or sauce. so let’s be creative and see what we can come up with. Entries will be from 11:30 a.m. to noon. Judging will follow. Entries must be at least four servings.
