VFW Commander Joe Hare, officials of Post 6097, Lindsey Wilson Vice President for Financial Affairs Mark Coleman and Notary Jamie McQueary Murrell convened at the Post Hall on the Fairgrounds property to sign documents for the sale of the property to the college. The closing was convened at 5pmCT today, Friday, July 22, 2016.
Commander Hare told the group that it occurred to him how historic the signing was, today, and even 200 years for now. He gave no specifics on the transaction, saying that would come in a few days in statements from the post and another from the college. "But I was thinking on the way over here that 200 years from now, the names on the document will still have significance," he said,"and maybe there will be a renewal of the contract then." Around the table with him from the post and signing the documents were Joe Coffey, Gary Melton, Travis Giles, Robin Woodrum, and Ronnie Holt.
Jamie McQueary Murrell notarized the documents.
Commander Hare said he considered the property transferred with the signing and would be official as soon as the documents are recorded in the Adair County Clerk's office, as early as Saturday, July 23, 2016, but no later than Monday or Tuesday, July 25 or 26, 2016.
There is still no official word on the future of the Adair County Fair.
