Tenth Annual Exhibition
Said To Be Best Ever
What is said to be the finest fair
ever held in Cherokee ounty closed
its doors here Saturday night i/fer 4
days in which the best products of th i
county were put on exhibition and a
brilliant midway attraction drew
thousands of people from Cherekej
and surrounding counties.
In the opinion of the officials of
the association, the T^vth Anr.ual
tair eclipsed all others from every
standpoint and the interest that was
manifested in it assures even a better
one next year.
The com hi.- list of awards was
[not available Wednesday but will be
| eady for publication next week, A.
jQ. Ketner, Cherokee county agent,
who took a large part in the presentation
of the show, said.
The 35 fair marked the tenth
exposition under the direction of W.
M. Fain, as pr^ident of the Cherokee
County Fair association, and T. J.
Bristol and E. P. Hawkins, as vicepresidents,
who have generously givc:
their se:vices during these years
without compensation for the benefit
of the county.
The : sosciation sponsors the fair
and finances it without costing the
. ounty or any ther official body
..ne cent, Mr. Fain said, and any reserve
that is left ov, 1 when all bills
connected with the fair are paid goes
:mpi vements to the grounds
and to pay >>1100 < . bat;: premiums
shr ;v.iv left who., .he pie sent associate..
? k . v r t..e work.
Mr. Fain also declared that due to
the failing of a bank several years
ago the body was unable to pay the
j. nihin i a.though it had tae money
and that the association hopes to
clear e\en that debt soon.
This year additional expenditures
w re made on the xair building and
tor t ie erection of a house for a
keeper of the grounds.
Since the incorporation of the association
Tom Axley has served as
e. rotary of the organization and F.
O. Christopher, local attorney, resigned
as treasurer last year and the appointment
of John Davidson to that
Much credit has gone out to the association
foi the time and work they
hive given the county and the four
day exhibition requires the attention
of the directors throughout the year
which they geneiously give, as the
Negro says, "free gratis for nothin'."
The association extends its thanks
to everyone who took a part in the
fair, helped it to be the success it
turned out to be, and to the judges
lor their valuable assitance and cooperation.
