Members of the Lin­coln County Fair Board— Curt Madsen, Don Evers and Frank Jorgensen— presented a report on the 2017 Lincoln County Fair. “We had a really good fair,” said Madsen, who added that the weather was good and attendance was up. No records are kept on attendance, however, at­tendance was up at the demolition derby and the 4-H canteen had record sales in the first three days. Madsen said since the prices have not been raised at the canteen, this was also an indication that attendance was up at the fair this year.

Hendricks Public School’s four-year-old preschoolers share what they would cook if they were in charge of Thanksgiving Dinner.

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and appreciate what we have in our lives. For many people, their children top the list. Children learn what they see and hear and they imitate many things and, if you take time to listen to them, they are interesting, funny, little people. Sometimes, the more serious the questions you put to them, the more amusing the answers you get.
I recently interviewed the four-year-old preschoolers at Hendricks Public School to see what they would make for Thanksgiving dinner and how they would make it. We at the Pioneer hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed interviewing these budding young chefs!
