EDITORIAL: This is our weekend

Come Saturday, Hillsboro and Marion once again will become the twin capitals of arts and crafts in Kansas when our neighboring communities hold their respective fairs.

Whether high gasoline prices will have any effect on attendance is anyone’s guess, but over the past several years, the gaggle of buyers and lookers has been estimated between 40,000 and 50,000.

Local volunteers already have contributed countless hours to planning these fairs; an even bigger army will rise up on Friday and Saturday to accomplish the myriad tasks that are required for events of this magnitude.

These fairs are truly community events and we look forward to our opportunity to be gracious hosts. -DR
