Letter: Good ol’ ideas
Same old, same old Franklin County Fair. It could use some changes or additions.
Here are a few ideas for the Fair Committee based on the article in The Recorder recently asking for suggestions to improve interest.
1. Revive the old High School track meet with the eight area schools participating or a modified football scrimmage between the rival teams: TF/GHS, Frontier/Mohawk, Pionner/FCTS, Athol/Mahar right in front of the grandstands. Each rivalry taking a brief turn as a pre-season tune-up prior to the Sept. 13 start of the season.
2. Music/dance pavilion/tent inside the track with beer/wine sold.
3. Horse racing of some kind (no betting). Was once a major draw.
4. Cross-country race amongst area schools: around the track.
Oh, for the “good old days” at the Fair.
