The Rochester Grange Fair is just a week away. With 1000 books spread out the Tri-Town area with all the rules and information, it is hoped that many of you will be checking them to see what your entries in the fair will be. Get your friends and neighbors, children and grandchildren to enter as well. First, second, and third prizes are awarded in all categories. Listed in the fair book are fruits, vegetables, flowers, handcrafts (sewing, needlework, painting, etc.), canning, and baking. A conservation category just for kids under 16 is also in the book. Separate papers on this contest can be found at the Plumb Library in Rochester. Remember, the book is only a guide. If you have something you would like to enter and it is not listed, bring it down to the Grange Hall anyway. Entries will be taken on Friday, August 16from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. Judging will begin as soon as all entries are in place. Anyone may enter from the age of 5 years and up and is not limited to just Rochester, but surrounding towns may enter as well. The fair will also include a bake table, raffles, and an auction of produce from the fair. For information on the fair contact Sue or Herb at 508-295-8908 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
