Aug. 7 will be the open­ing of the 75th Queen Anne’s County Fair held at the 4-H Park. Thanks to the gen­eros­ity of Ge­orge Mof­fett who left 26 acres to the 4-H youth of Queen Anne’s County, we have a won­der­ful park that pro­vides the set­ting for the sin­gle largest ac­tiv­ity held in our county.

In 1942, Zoot suits were a fash­ion state­ment for many men, Kel­logg’s Raisin Bran and in­stant coffee were in­tro­duced, and a movie ticket was 30 cents. Sev­enty-five years later the Fair Com­mit­tee is busy pre­par­ing for a won­der­ful Fair and cel­e­bra­tion. Look for the Fair Book in the pa­per around Mother’s Day. Why not en­ter some­thing in 2017? Check out the classes and work to­ward hav­ing an en­try.

We are also pleased to an­nounce there will be a Pit Ham din­ner on Satur­day, thanks to the Queen Anne’s County Farm Bureau. We will also close the Fair with a con­cert from Sam Grow. Mark Aug. 7 to the 12 on your cal­en­dar. It is a time to re­new old friend­ships and make news friends.
