Summer’s here, but fall fair fast approaches

Gardens should be coming along

With the equinox past, the days are getting shorter, (terrible thought!), but it also means that we are getting closer to fall fair time! Gardens should be growing nicely by now; keep giving your prize veggies and flowers that tender loving care they’ll need to win first place.

We realize for some folks that have been impacted by the flooding, that there will be no garden to take pride in this season. But we want to remind everyone that the theme that was chosen earlier this year, “Our Fall Fair,” will be an opportunity for our whole community to come together for this fun annual event that began some 108 years ago!

We hope that everyone will turn out to the Canada Day parade to see our demo derby car, and to stop by our booth to visit, ask about the Fall Fair, and maybe even sign up to be a member! There is always a need for volunteers, and the demo derby folks are ‘calling all gearheads’ who love working on cars to get in touch. Check us out at: grandforksfallfair.com or at our booth at Gyro Park on Canada Day.
