Last night I went to a tried and true, small town, county fair. The Jones County Fair, a fundraiser for the Lions Club has been going on all week in Gray, Georgia. I did a little research on this organization, just to see where the money goes, and what type of things they do in the community. If you are not familiar, apparently the Lions Club's mission is simple, and one I can completely believe in - "A community is what you make it." So true. That in and of it self, makes you feel good about spending your money with them!
One thing I read about them, that struck me the most was that they are really big with providing vision programs: vision screenings, eye banks and eyeglass recycling. They also provide eye care services to those at risk of losing their sight. And raise donations through campaigns like SightFirst and Campaign SightFirst II.
Not only were we able to have a blast, I feel good knowing it goes to a good cause. That's important.
But enough of my chitter chatter - let the pictures tell the story!
Here is a shot of my dad, he enjoyed a sausage wrap! I think I caught him with a little mustard on his cheek!
The Jones County Fire Department was on hand. I have to admit, this dog startled me a few times. LOL But I was able to catch him across the way. Nothing like standing at a ride at night, turn around and there is a life sized dog standing right behind you!
You know, I am all about details. Even the trash cans were ornate. I was also pleased to see recycling options scattered through out the fair grounds.
The Piece de Resistance!
The Hallelujah Chorus just erupted in my ears!
My awkward shot - the one where I am trying to tell my mom how to operate my camera!
Another Teacup Shot!
Oh yeah - Autumn and I tore through this!
