CASS COUNTY FAIR - Rocked the Summer Nights!
This year the Ferris Wheel was back! The kids were very excited!
The Elmwood Murdock Merchants Association had their usual booth.
They displayed the Good Neighbor awards that will be given out at the Elmwood
Extravaganza in November.
The EMMA booth displayed the new 4th of July flags for Murdock and
also each merchant was encouraged to set up a display for their business.
Drs. Bryan and Sally Hufstader of the Lifetime Wellness Center in Elmwood
offered free posture screenings.

District 2, fill some balloons. Andy Clements just tried to stay out of the way!

Everyone got a D.A.R.E. bracelet and assorted give-a-ways. Deputy Wes
Tuttle was around somewhere!
Sheriff Bill had a few tricks up his sleeve to entertain the crowds.

Funny, the Flying Wheels wasn't represented at the County Fair this year
but it is still remembered! Look for something next year!
The Zipper is one of the most popular attractions. Besides the
Ferris Wheel that is!
The Recycle Trailer is Still in Elmwood this Week!
Murdock has opted to not have the recycle trailer anymore so Elmwood has
gained an extra week. Lucky for us because it is used a lot! So keep saving your
recyclables...especially the cardboard...we get paid for that so let's collect as much
as we can!
