Our week at the fair provided some wonderful moments and of course some not so wonderful moments.. We received tons of leads this year which is what it is all about. Our brand new tent got damaged in the storm that went through here on Wednesday. We lost all of our posters, etc. and had to redo them... We had the normal amount of threats...We had a 50/50 drawing and Rick Smith from Calcutta was our winner of $101.50! We made new friends, saw lots of Politicians and Law Enforcement Officials...We saw family members after family members...and I still managed to meet some of Mike's friends that I had never met before.. Rumors were flying just like always and the newest homicide of 7 month old Derrik was brought up constantly. Kim and I worked the entire fair from open to close as usual and we had great, great volunteers that helped us out. Thank you Volunteers Sarah Fraser and Briana Carroll, Zack Puchajda and CCFHV Board member volunteers, Amy Fraser, Brian Vaughn, Marian Spack and CCFHV Officers, Cassidie Edwards and Barb Brown.. You guys were awesome and we are so lucky to have you! Thanks for your dedication to our cause!
The fair is exhausting but ALWAYS worth the heat, rain, drama, exhaustion, emotions, and all of the crankiness that comes along with it..
