Hope you watched the Reds first game April 6th. Before the game the Reds organization had a ceremony honoring home-coming heroes. Brad Wenstrup was there who represents our area here in Brown Co. The Wounded Warriors organization, Impact a Hero, V.F. W. and American Legion are helping show us the sacrifice these people gave for our country. The National Anthem sang before the game and God Bless America at the 7th inning stretch really starts the Baseball season respectively. Help us make this year "Stand Up for America" at the Brown Co. Fair.
Each year the Fair Board Director's select a Grand Marshal to lead the parade on Monday of the Fair. This year's Grand Marshal is the President of the Brown Co. Agricultural Society; Orville Walen. We don't know exactly how many years Orville has served as a Fair Board Director of the Brown Co. Fair. We do know that he and his family have been serving with distinction here in Brown Co. for a long time. This is a well deserved honor and we thank Orville and his family for their many years of dedication.

Many pictures, stories, and food were enjoyed while saying goodbye to Nancy.
