Well, the Kiowa County Fair has come and gone for another year. It was a good fair and there were more exhibits than last year. The weather was ideal - not too hot and not too cold. A large crowd was in attendance Friday and Saturday. The parade was great, and the car show was well attended. The Plainview student council members along with a couple of helpers from Eads ran the game booths both days and they were a big hit with the kids.
I can't believe it is fair week already. Hope everyone can come and enjoy the activities. We have been busy picking and digging our garden produce and getting it ready to show at the fair. Kyle and I have been doing some baking and making candy and I have also been busy making pickles, jelly and relish to show. Fun! Fun!
Last Thursday, Susan Greenfield and Jeanie Smith went to Holly to watch their girls play volleyball. Friday, they went to La Junta shopping and then back to Manzanola to watch the Eads football and volleyball teams play.
Our communities would like to offer their condolences to the family of Mike Benge who passed away last week. Mike ran the filling station and parts store for several years in Sheridan Lake before moving to Lamar. He always had a smile and enjoyed visiting when he ran into friends. He will be missed by his many friends.
We also offer our condolences to the Braden Lane family on the loss of their loved one this past week.
Our communities would like to extend their condolences to Penni Shalberg and family on the loss of her father this past week. He lived in Alamosa.
