Caddo Community Fair Draws Many Spectators
An estimated 1,500 persons came to the Caddo Community Fair at the high school gymnasium last Thursday, where 600 exhibits on display greeted their eyes.
County Agent John Stogner and County Home Demonstration Agent Nina Craig were there to give valuable assistance in doing arrangement and both declared that it was one of the best fairs of its kind they had ever seen.
Seventy-one trios of chickens were exhibited in poultry, and other divisions of the fair were just as well represented.
“Business men of Caddo deserve praise and credit for the time and money they put into this fair,” said J. N. Broadhead, chairman of the fair committee.
“Special recognition also must go to J. A. Cobb, Vernon Cargill, Russell Fox, R. T. Hutchens, Mrs. R. T. Hutchens, and Loyce Choate for the efficient and untiring effort expended in making the fair the success that it was.”
Approximately $225 was given in prizes. Much of this money was won by FFA students of the Caddo high school, but a greater part was distributed among the hundreds of entrants from the community at large.
