FAIR 2000 FLOAT CONSTRUCTION: A special word of thanks to all the "movers and shakers" who turned out at all the appropriate times to build the Float and place all necessary items, tents, etc., for a very successful Fair, and then, like the storybook Arabs, "folded their tents and stole silently away." Everything is carefully stored, ready for March 2001. It was very gratifying to see so many younger members in the group. The Fair should continue for many years. - Eric Hazeldine.
