Kids and cars. Table Rock loves both, and we had a lot of both at our fair last Saturday. The car show, expected to be light because of competing events in the Car Council area, ended up with a double row south of the Square. And kids were everywhere.

Pawnee County Fair 2019

Every year, the Fairview Golf Course in Pawnee City turns into a magical place as the Pawnee County Ag Society, 4-H’ers, and local groups work together to set up the Pawnee County Fair. The 139th Pawnee County Fair included tractor pulls, a parade, rodeo, donkey polo, 4-H livestock shows and exhibits, midway shows, carnival games, kids’ entertainment, and the ever-popular mud volleyball.

Many followed the parade to the fairgrounds on Thursday to enjoy the chicken barbecue, the tunes and humor that comes with the Greg Blecha Trio, and the presentation of the Pioneer Farm Family awards. This year six families received Aksarben awards for keeping their farm in the family for 100 or 150 years. Loren Joe Stehlik shared the histories of each family and Fair Queen Lauren Moser presented plaques to the families of Jim & Virginia Chittick, Vernon Rinne, Bill Petrashek, Lucille Schaardt, Glenn Beethe, and Ed Workman.

A new look for the Table Rock Fair

The Table Rock Fair is for kids of all ages. The Community Club abandoned fire works in favor of a strolling magician, barbershop singers, two flow artists, a balloon twister, and a juggler. There will be face painting by Daisy and Lollipop. They are clowns! And Dizzi Da Clown will be there with her bubble show. The Flint Hills Outlaw Gang may walk the streets of Table Rock, too. Looking for someone or someplace to rob. One will wear a marshal’s star. Who will be arrested? How much will be their bail? And what the heck is a flow artist! Come to Table Rock on August 10 and see for yourself!

Check the schedule in your paper to see the many things going on. The show and shine car show will provide some beautiful vehicles to ogle, from Noon to 4. During the car show, there will be a fun competition amongst the littlest kids on the Giddy Up . After the parade, the older kids can do the pedal tractor pull. There are bounce houses, too!

A library is a vital part of a community

Americans love their libraries! In a national survey by Public Agenda, almost half the respondents gave libraries an “A” – higher than public schools or the police. More than 6 in 10 marked “strongly agree” that public libraries are essential for “maintaining a productive community.”

Many of us think of a library as a place that houses and checks out books. Libraries certainly do that, but they offer much, much more to the communities they serve. Libraries are central to healthy communities and are sometimes known as the “living room” of the community. Everyone is welcome in the library, and all are free to pursue their individual interests.

Libraries offer Internet connectivity to everyone in the community; they provide a safe space for children and teens; they offer reading choices in a wide variety of formats; they preserve local history and make it accessible; and they contribute to the local economy.
