Fair book is important for residents without internet

Print Article

I have lived in Moses Lake since 1963. In all that time the Grant County Fair Board has put out a fair book. Today I went to the fairgrounds to pick up a copy only to be told there is no book this year. I asked why and the lady I was talking to only shrugged her shoulders and said I would have to go online to register my entries. I asked her what about those of us who donít have Internet service. Again I got a shrug of the shoulders. In my opinion we need a fair book if the fair wants to continue to be inclusive of all county residents.
