As you all know, the Trout Lake Fair was held this past weekend. Many people thought it was the best yet. It was certainly well attended. The parade, as ever, was my favorite part. This year, it was especially fun. If you missed Dave Wampler's yard work brigade, you missed some of the best entertainment in Trout Lake history. They not only paraded in style, they had synchronized mower/wheelbarrow dancing. It was a sight to behold and my favorite of all times. Great job, Brigaders!

The baking contest was a success again (thank goodness, after last year's flop!). The first prize for the adult division went to Harmony Allaway, who also took the best of show for her lemon cheese braid, second to Maura Mahl, and third to Sandi Tucker. The first prize for the children's division went to Isaiah Snyder, second to Anna Schmid, and third to Lucas King. Congratulations to all and thank you so, so much to the judges.

The sewing/needlework competition's best of show went to Mary Lou Griffin for her dolls. She also won a first and third in her category. Sandi Tucker won first in the quilting category. Addie Robertson won first in junior sewing category. Congratulations to all of the ribbon winners, and, again, thank you so, so much to the judges.

The ton of clover grass hay was won by Steve Allaway. The truckload of wood was won by Margaret Bender. The truckload of gravel was won by Diane Paxson. The quilt was won by Mecca Jean Jackson of the Northwest Service Academy. This has to be a record year, when all of the raffle prizes were won by local people!

Thanks to all the vendors for the good eats. Yum!

I'm late getting this to the paper this week, so just the important info for now. I'll fill in the blanks next week, when I write again. I'll try to get the winners of the race by then, too. Terry Lee.
