The Erie County Fair was a great success.  THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED IN MAKING ITEMS OR BEING AT THE FAIR.  A TOTAL OF $7,756.50 WAS COLLECTED AND IT WILL BE DISTRIBUTED TO MAKE-A-WISH CHARITY. Special thanks to the co-organizers Al Schultz, Steve Imerese, and Rich Mialki. And Thank You to all of the spouses and friends who also helped make this year such a resounding success.  Please note there are very few items left to sell next year, so Al reminds us all to start early making your special items.
