The temperature has been getting colder as of late, signalling the return of fall to our region of the globe. I personally love Autumn/Fall but I know many of you wish the days of Summer had lingered on a bit longer! So, as my very small treat to you Summer folks, let us remember warmer days - the 2014 Martin County Fair! The Fair was a great experience this year as we shared a booth with many other non-profit groops in the Fairmont Chamber of Commerce Booth. We brought back our Artifact Guessing Game, gave away free memberships, and had fun interacting with the many fair-goers! In case you missed us there, allow me to bring the guessing game to you! Check out the pictures of the items below and try to guess what they are. Once you have an answer, click on the picture to see if you were right!
