20 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE - Thursday, September 1, 2005 Mrs. ~ Welsh 876-6845 The 2005 Jefferson County Fair closed on Saturday night with a light attendance due to the weather and unfortunately several events had to be can- celled; however, the previous days were excellent and beauti- ful weather. As I entered the fairgrounds on Sunday, the sounds, smells and quietness hit me that be- fore the excitement of an old- fashioned county fair had come to an end. The Evergreen 4- H Club excelled this year with members' exhibits and special awards. Katie Wolf received special awards for her fowl. Breanne DeGrave was an over- all point system winner and re- ceived a beautiful trophy. One was also awarded to the boy. This is based on points received from ribbons won. The club re- ceived $200 for the 4-H and FFA bake auction held on Tues- day evening. Kudos to Shannon Connelly for strutting her stuff around the ring with a special cat cake. Shannon and other committee member Molly Col- her were instrumental in set- ting up the club's educational table exhibit which the club re- ceived a Blue ribbon and mon- etary gift. A table is set for the little Cloverbuds with Evergreen Lit- tle Pinecones displaying their scrapbook of photos from the past year. Kianna Jones dis- played one of her painted T- shirts on the table. Even though you are in 4-H, young people can enter exhibits elsewhere in other departments. How proud I was to hear that my grand- daughter Sarah received an extra award for her decorated cake in addition to other rib- bons on her entries. The Welsh family received many ribbons on exhibits. My husband buys at the stock sale and gives it back to the fair to sell for Camp Frame. Yes, it was a tiring week, but rewarding. I encourage every- one to participate in the 2006 Jefferson County Fair. September Birthdays A busy month for birthdays. If you see any of these folks out and about wish them a hap- py birthday. Emma Hampshire celebrates her 5th birthday on the 3rd; Katie Wolf on the 5th; 'Nicolas Hampshire on th~ 6th; Pare Miller falls on the 7th; the 8th Harley Potter will turn an- other year older. Beverly Ba- sore on the 11th; Tim Stride, Sr. and Brent Crenshaw share a birthday on the 12th; my granddaughter Kayla Elizabeth Welsh will turn a big "5" on the 14th; and shares a birthday with Ruth Farmer. Austin Crenshaw celebrates on the 16th; Heather Snyder on the 17th; three to re- port on the 19th, Tammy Hous- er, Krista Houser and Madeline Crenshaw.

That's all for this Way Dot Snyder 725-7769 August is just a memory and today we have entered Septem- ber. August was very hot and dry, but on Saturday we were blessed with a nice gentle rain most of the day. We will begin to feel warm days and cooler nights. September is a busy month on the farm with the harvest of many crops. The only.nation- al holiday this month is Labor Day, on Monday, September 5. The September symbols are: the morning glory is the flower and the sapphire is the gem. Notable Past Events The first Continental Con- gress met in Philadelphia in 1774; "Star Spangled Banner" was written by Francis Scott Key, 1814; Pilgrim's sailed from England on the Mayflower, 1620; Lincoln issued prelimi- nary proclamation freeing the to a French-Canadian trader, Tousaint Carbonneau. In 1908, they joined the Lewis and Clark Expedition as it passed 'through their territory. Sacagawea acted as transla- tor for the group. She negoti- ated with various Indian tribes to let the Expedition progress through unknown territory, as they mapped the farthest rech- es of the Louisiana Purchase. Sacagawea guided the explor- ers through the Rocky Moun- tains and traveled to the site , of Bismark, N.D. to the Oregon coast and back. She also per- suaded tribes along the way to give them horses. Some historians believe Sa- cagawea died on the Missouri River in 1812. Others believe she died and was buried on the Wind River Indian reservation in Wyoming in 1884. Lynn Welsh plays tennis with the Winchester Stonebrook Tennis Team and they won the USTA local championship. They then went to Newport News for sectionals and were in second place. The team was in- vited back to Newport News for the District meet as a wild card team. They placed third. Wednesday, August 26, my daughter, Wallis Anne Magaha drove me (Dot) to Centreville, Va to spend the day with Jen- nifer O'Looney. We toured the O'Looney's new home and it is a beautiful, large house with lovely large windows. It was a nice day and the traffic was light on our way home. Sympathy Condolences to the family of Helene Bazzrea. She was a dear friend and I will miss her. Many evenings she would call me and I had lost my voice and I don't think she could understand a word I said, but we held hands and we both knew we were hap- py to see each other. My best wishes go to her daughter, Jackie, and the rest of the family, as they were so loving to Helene. She will be missed by many. I have just finished some books I would like to recom- mend. First is Jimmy Cart- er's book, "Sharing the Good Times." I really enjoyed this one. These others are very good, too.

I met Helene when she and my daughter were leaders of a Girl Scout troop, quite a few years ago. They became very close friends through work with the group. We have certainly felt a great loss.

Anniversaries It seems like all of a sud- den, it is everyone's anniversa- ry. First, I will start out with a belated one, of which the par- ties did not let me know about. Gary and Cindy Chrisman cel- ebrated 30 years on August 8. Also, Cindy celebrated her birthday on August 10. Better late than never, congratula- tions are still given to you. May you celebrate many more. Hel- en (Snooks) and Bobby Mason celebrated their 40th anniver- sary on the return from a long trip, which I will tell you more about later. Marybelle and Gene Starli- per celebrated their 48th an- niversary. Something tells me you folks are doing something right. May each of you have many more to come. Birthdays Another belateded birth- day greeting goes to Tiffany Hine who celebrated on Au- gust 26. Coming up Septem- ber 1, Winston Dilley and J.T. DeSarno will share their days. Mary Hoover and Paul Ranal- li share the same day on Sep- tember 3. Kay Payne celebrates September 2. If you see any of these people, wish them health and happiness and many more years. Winners One and All Some of the winners at the local fair were given to me as follows: From the Knights of Pythias,a bushel of crabs by Dennis Johnson; oak jewelry box by Dixie Wiltshire; a ladder chair by Shawn Wilt and the top prize of their week was the shotgun won by Jack Kackley. From the Pythian Sisters, a bucket of car care products was won by JoEllen Baker; a lamp by Lonnie Durant; basket of beau- ty products by Karen Gageby and the top prize fro.m the sis- ters was a quilt made by Nan- cy Magaha and won by Dewil- da Dietrich of Hayesville, N.C. When called about her winning, Ms. Dietrich had just arrived back home in N.C and was very excited about the news. Trip Across Country (As told by the Masons and travel companions). 7,043 miles in 16 days, 14 states and 3 provinces. That's a lot of road. First real stop was St. Louis, where the Gateway Arch was toured hy all; then on to Kan- sas City, north through St. Jo- seph through Omaha and west to Cheyenne and Laramie to Rock Springs, Wyoming. Turn- ing north to Jackson Hole and on to the Tetons and Yellow- stone Park. After seeing Old Faithful do its thing, they trav- eled east into Cody and toured the enlarged museum of guns and the Old West. This includ- ed the history of Cody, whom the town Cody is named. Turn- ing north again through the Northeast Gate back into Yel- lowstone Park, they toured the north side including Monmouth Springs going on to Gardner, Montana, north through Hele- na into America's Crown Jew- el Park, Glacier Park. Stopping long enough to visit friends that live along the west slope of the mountains between Kalispell and Big Fork. Sight was then set on the Canadian Border. Crossing into British Columbia at Roosville, driving through Waterton Peace Park, north to Lake Louise, Alberta to the Co- lumbia Ice Fields. Here you can actually walk and play on a live glacier. Traveling on through Jasper, coming South through eastern Montana and North Dakota to Rapid City, S.D. Spending time at Mt. Rush- more, Crazy Horse Monument and Custer State Park into the Black Hills National Forest. Taking a bus tour of this park. Coming back through Minne- sota and Indiariapolis the sight of Wheeling, W.Va. was great. Traveling together were Bob- by and Snooks Mason, Wayne and Shirley Stolipher, Betty Fulk and Linda Fries. All came home happy, healthy and tired. From Our Youth to Our Future MaKenzie Mackey received 6 first place ribbons; 5 seconds and 3 thirds at the county fair. She painted rocks, a Hallow- een mask and a painted jew- elry box. Dylan Mackey won 4 first place ribbons; 5 seconds and 4 thirds with his cherry tomatoes, strawberry muffins and gourds. Andrew Rozas won 7 first place ribbons; 8 seconds; 8 thirds with his sunflowers, cornbread, and entered sewing for the first time. Dylan's big thing was the Jeff Gordon race car that he made and wore as a costume, entering it in the fair and winning first place. Naturally, children with this talent have got to have a tal- ented person behind them, like Grandma Barbara. Barba- ra Mackey entered the fair for the first time in 1965 winning a third place. After competing for many years, Barbara was the recipi- ent of 13 fLrsts, 5 seconds and 4 thirds. Anyone who has seen work by Barbara knows she is a true artist and apparently the grandchildren are follow- ing in her footsteps. Congratu- lations to this family. No space this week for a rec- ipe, we need to think about di- eting after all these reunions and picnics, but I will leave you with this: "The difference between per- severance and obstinacy is that one often comes from a strong will and the other from a strong won't." - Henry Ward Beecher.
