Another Bureau County Fair was a success
The 158th annual Bureau County Fair had a successful run. Thursday morning’s rain helped settle the dust, and the rest of the week was hot and dry. Large crowds filled the grounds, and they flocked to see the bear mountain show, ride the Freak Out and Tilt-a-Whirl, and eat great fair food.
The fair will be reviewed at the life member annual meeting at 7 p.m. Oct. 14. At that time, the new township directors and board members will be elected. If any life members would be interested in applying as an associate director (if they live in a township that already has a director), they can submit their letter of application at the annual meeting.
Next Sunday (Sept. 15), you can come out and shop for bargains at the Homestead Festival Flea Market at the fairgrounds from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you have treasures you would like to sell, call Nancy Monier at 815-303-2905 to reserve your selling space now. Please note the October Flea Market will be held on Oct. 20, and it will be a Fall Craft Show and a flea market.
