LEWISBORO The 51st annual Lewisboro Library Country Fair went off without a hitch Saturday as hundreds of area residents filed through the gate to help support the library and take advantage of the food, fun, games, music and raffle prizes.
Its always a good crowd, said library Trustee Gary Page. Lewisboro is a good place and the people have always supported the library, even in difficult times like these.
The fair is a major fundraiser for the library.
All the proceeds from the fair go to the librarys operating budget, said Cindy Rubino, library director. It helps us maintain our programs and services and pay the electric bill. Its been a great day so far and we are grateful to all of our volunteers.
The fair was so well attended that the Lions Club ran out of hotdogs, hamburgers and chili by 2:30 p.m.
Ive been involved in the Lions Club since 1978 and this is the first time I can remember something like this happening," said Lions Club member Malcolm Brown. "Its a good sign, I think.
Still, there was plenty to do at the fair besides eat. There was the Attic Treasures a giant garage and antique sales, the book and toy sale and a corn maze, as well as games and activities for the kids, including face painting.
Live music, featuring local musician and Presbyterian Church pastor Chip Andrus kept everybody jumping and tapping their feet.
One of the fairs biggest moneymakers, the raffle, featured prizes that included a 55-inch flat-screen HDTV and an Apple iPad 2.
Car enthusiasts flocked to the classic car show, which was sponsored by Arrowoway Chevrolet, and area businesses and organizations were on hand to promote their causes.
