Well the Clarke County Fair is over. We had a bit of heat, a little rain, a little wind, and a lot of great people come and enjoy the fair this year.
As co-chairman of the Ruritan food stand I wish to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the individuals and groups that helped feed the crowds, groups like the Blue Ridge Hunt Club, the Clarke County employees, the Town of Berryville employees, Boy Scout Troop 34, and the Men and Women’s Clubs of St. Bridget Catholic Church, and lets not forget the many folks that signed or just came in to help during the day when we needed it most.
At times it might seem that working over a hot grill, a steamy fryer, or a sticky soda fountain is a thankless job, but we, the Clarke County Ruritan Club, do remember and appreciate it.
For all the great volunteers, please come to the Ruritan Appreciation Dinner September 15th at 7pm so we may show our gratitude for your hard work.
You are the reason Clarke County is such a great place to live. There is one last group I must thank, the Macintosh Farms, for the fantastic peaches we received so many compliments on.
