Tuesday of Fair Week at the Huron County Fairgrounds offered a wide variety of weather (a little rain, a little sun) and activities ranging from a Huron County Commissioners meeting to a kiddie tractor pull.

Commissioners Gary Bauer, Tom Dunlap and Joe Hintz held their meeting in the barn at the Heritage Center and heard a report from Carol Knapp, executive director of the Huron County Development Council.

She listed some of the companies in the county the Development Council helped with business plans and financing in the last few months. These included Jodansa in Wakeman, Eleven 18 Powersports in Bellevue and Carl's Complete Car Care in New London.

She also mentioned working with Pepperidge Farm, Guardian Manufacturing and Star of the West Milling Company of Ohio, all in Willard, and Berry Plastics in Monroeville.

Even during the meeting, other activities in the barn never stopped, and visitors viewed demonstrations of rug weaving, quilting, broom making and other crafts.

On the other end of the fairgrounds in the Pickworth Judging Pavilion, children from the age of three up were competing in the kiddie tractor pull, and not too far away Huron County Grangers were serving sandwiches to hungry fairgoers in the Grange food booth.

Under the grandstand both political parties were handing out information, as were local businesses. One of these was the Huron County Bowling Proprietors, made up of Dynasty Lanes in Willard, Kenilee Lanes in Norwalk and New London Lanes.

These were just a few of the activities taking place on Tuesday, and many more were scheduled for the remainder of Fair Week, which ends Saturday, Aug. 16.
