Board readies for upcoming?Seneca fair

The Seneca County Fair Board met Tuesday to discuss the final preparations for the fair.

The board said the opening ceremony for the fair will begin at 8 a.m. July 22, the first day of the fair. Some of the last preparations being made by the board are to be completed in the next week, which include where ice for the coolers will be coming from, the need of driveway spray to eliminate the dust, the replacement of a restroom roof and the fireworks permit.

The board also discussed the need for the buildings to have numbers as requested by the Bascom fire chief. This would allow for an easier response in case of an emergency.

In other matters, the board approved gun show dates for April 12-13, 2014, and Aug. 22-23, 2014.
