The Fair

   As the population of the new state of Minnesota started to grow, people decided to start a yearly get together where folks could show off their home projects. It started out that it was just animals but then progressed to home made goods. Then it expanded from a single fair at the capital to yearly gatherings called county fairs.
   Soon there were folks showing off their quilts and pies. Judging was done by elected judges, each a professional in their own field.
   Children soon wanted to be part of the new fairs and formed an organization called 4H. The kids worked long and hard on their projects and entered them in the County Fair. If they won there, they went on to the State Fair.
   State Fairs became quite important in agriculture. If a prize bull won first place, he would be busy for quite some time.
   You can find the EBook Kindle edition of "The River Calls" at and at    The Peace River Books blog is updated each day. 
   I invite you to visit "The River Calls" blog site each day for a small look into what life was like a long time ago.
