Break out the baking pans and enter fair contest

Can you believe it's Fair time? It's hard to believe that October is here but here we are and this fair will be another great one.

I hope you are planning to enter some items for exhibit in the Home Economics Division at the New Salem Clubhouse. Get those collections, arts and crafts, or baking and enter them in the fair. You just might win a blue ribbon.

We have the rules here at the chamber for the Home Economics division so come and get yours and get ready for the fair. We also have fair tickets on sale.

There will be a tractor pull again, pet show, basset hounds and so much more.

So make your plans to come to the 34th Annual Rockdale Fair.
