Donna Jones: FM2 is hard work - but what a joy!

Donna Jones writes:
Thank you for all your kind words about the Farmers Market on the Square and supporting us. As many know its hard work that's involved before all the items that's available to our customers arrive at the market; but what joy to see people going home with such great produce and products. Thanks to everyone who supports the market - Donna Jones

JIM: A Brief Glimpse of the 1957 Adair County Fair

The Adair County Fair for 1957 was history-making. It was'was the largest in the history of the county as far as spectators and visitors were concerned. And 'Much to the delight of kids (of many ages), the carnival for the 1957 Adair County Fair rolled into town on Sunday, July 28, through the next morning and had been set up and was ready for business before nightfall Monday.' JIM writes, and adds a new factoid: The Miss Adair County Fair Pageant was inaugurated 60 years ago. Miss Adair County Fair that year - can you guess??? - still looks almost exactly like she did in that year. 1957's Adair County Fair had so much: A 1957 Chevrolet was given away - it went to a lucky Russell Countian. But a wonderful Columbian, Mrs. C.H. Sandusky, won a sackful (100) silver dollars. There's loads of answers to questions of great importance to so many of our readers - even though they may not realize it. - CM

The Fair itself opened On Wednesday, July 31st, for its usual four-day run, and mercy, what a Fair that year! According to an opening-day article in the News, the events (beyond the many horse shows and races) included a muzzle loading shooting contest; the traditional first-day School Program; two dog shows; dairy cattle shows with $1,000 in premiums; and, of course, the always-spectacular displays of fruits, vegetables, canned goods, needlecraft, woodcraft, and the like, all in Floral Hall.
