Community Fair a success

Debra Smith, NGX

Kudos to the Community Fair Committee for a very successful fair. The last time we had a community fair was 2014. There was a great turnout on Saturday at the NG Fairgrounds, (approximately 1600 people, as estimated by fair organizers) and 49 vendors, including several information tables. Despite the overcast weather, many people stayed for hours and enjoyed kids activities, musical performances, a car show, raffle drawings, shopping and eating. Fair Committee chair Peter Bragdon reported to the Select Board that the fair ended up solidly in the black, and the committee hopes to make some improvements for next year. They’re going to need more volunteers to make the fair even bigger and better in 2020. See the photos from Kevyn Fowler below.
