At the Bridge Lake Fair’s June 3 meeting, directors checked out the new fair entry booklet and the new first-place ribbons for children’s competition entries.
Children are reminded there will be a best-dressed bicycle parade this year, with $10 and $5 prizes for ages five to eight, and ages nine to 12. The very popular old-fashioned races will be back, as will the cakewalks.
Entry booklets, covering everything you could possibly want to enter – baking, handicrafts, photography, garden and farm produce – are in all local general stores.
A retirement party for Carney Myers will be held at Lone Butte Community Hall on June 25, from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m.
All colleagues, former and current, parents, students, and friends are invited to join us in wishing her well. Everyone is welcome.
