The New York State Fair opens Wednesday, Aug. 23, and every year numerous Cazenovians enter and win ribbons in competitions in everything from arts and crafts to agriculture to animal husbandry to cooking to talent competitions. We print as many local winners as we can, but sometimes people get missed. If you or someone you know if participating in the fair in any way, especially by entering competitions and winning ribbons, let us know. And if you have photos of Cazenovians at the fair — whether they are participating in a competition or just enjoying the food, games, rides and exhibits — please send them in! We love spreading the news of Cazenovians doing fun and great things. To share your state fair news, email the editor at email@example.com, or call the editor at 434-8889 ext. 315.
