Mike Watson: Old Adair Courthouse center of our universe
Crowd estimated at over 500 for First Annual Book Fair. Plans are to hold the event again next year, on first Saturday in June.
By Mike Watson
The First Annual Adair County Genealogy and History Book Fair tookplace at the Historic Adair County Courthouse on Saturday, June 2nd.It was, by all accounts, a rousing success.
The Adair Heritage Association, Adair County Library, Adair Genealogical Society, andJane Lampton Daughters of the American Revolution, co-sponsors of theevent, thank everyone for their attendance, assistance and words ofencouragement.
We hope this will be an annual event, held on the samesite, the first Saturday of June. By most estimates, attendance toppedfive hundred, and many of those friends of history walked away with atleast one book or other Adair artifact. Watch for more events at theCourthouse.
Friday, June 1 was clean up and set up day at the Courthouse. Lee AnnJessee spear-headed the work and Ellen Zornes and your scribe did ourbest to keep up.
One interesting thing about the cleanup day--no less than seven peoplecame into the Historic Courthouse to conduct business, such as renewdriver's licenses, etc. Now, if that doesn't scream this building isthe center of Adair County's universe, then what does? - Mike Watson
