Floats and marching bands and, of course, a few politicians were part of the lineup as the annual Adams County 4-H Fair parade wound its way through Monroe Tuesday evening. The fair entered its final two days today and will be culminated with the livestock auction sale beginning at 4 p.m. Thursday.
The June 21 benefit auction to raise money for the Golden Meadows Home Special Needs Resident Fund was “the most successful ever,” Administrator Tom Magnan reported to the Adams County Commissioners at their meeting Monday.
The auction, the 20th annual benefit event held at the county facility, netted $7,665, Magnan told commissioners. He stated the auction itself grossed $6,904, while food sales ($485.91), a pair of raffles ($234) and $625 in cash donations brought total revenues to $8,249.
