“In years past, we’ve hosted both the school and street festival on the same day, but as both events continue to grow, it seemed like a good idea to give them both the spotlight,” said Greene. “We’re getting a lot of positive feedback on the change. I know I’m excited about the switch — I am always so busy working the street fair that I miss the cooking school. Not this year!” Friday, the festival will feature the Festival Cucina or “cooking school” at 6 p.m. at the Elks Lodge No. 294, on 419 Adams St. Tickets can be purchased for $25 at the Main Street Fairmont office or by calling (304)366-0468.
BOOM! The rifle went off as the deer kicked up and ran into the brush. It was the day before the mentor hunt and we were driving to our cabin in Luck,Wisconsin. It was early October as we arrived at our cabin as the beautiful fall colors welcomed us. We got into our cabin and we started to cook dinner.
My family had lived in Michigan for a few years now. As usual, my family decided to go to Minnesota for Valentine 's Day week. As we packed and got ready, I remembered all the fun times I had when my family visited friends earlier times. The church potlucks, the ice rinks, the YMCA, all fun activities we used to do with friends and family there. We left early in the morning to get the long eight-hour trip over.
I'm not saying it’s a great thing to do, but it sure is funny! The next morning, we head out for an omelet breakfast with bacon, and anything you could think of. After that, We get onto a boat and explore the beach. The tour guide takes us to a really fascinating group of seals. All being different sizes, I found them really cute and interesting to look at.
Tom almost fell off the windowsill he was sitting on. None of the other turkeys or animals took him seriously. They laughed about it and then went about their business. Tom realized he had to get away from the farm, and fast! The next day the farmhands were loading a truck full of winter goods for the farmer’s market.
The Fishing Derby is held on the first Saturday of June every year. Kids get a chance to go fishing and catch fish. The parents get a chance to go fishing too. The Lions Club does snow cones, popcorn, and hot dogs that are free, but people can make donations if they want to. Every kid gets a raffle ticket to win a prize.
Our Thanksgiving Day On the fourth Thursday of November, Me and my family celebrate Thanksgiving at my aunt’s house because it is just a day to relax and thank my family for whatever they have done for me without being selfish or greedy. We all help today with the preparations. First we get together, then we try to entertain ourselves in different ways, and then we have our feast. We do a lot of fun things, Me and my cousin go buy muffin mix, and then we make muffins. I love going to my cousin’s house in Thanksgiving.
She explained how she often goes to rodeos with her parents. I told her that the closest thing I have ever done to riding a bull is when I rode a mechanical horse outside of a store. Although I was unsure about what to expect, I could not wait to try something new for the summer. The day I arrived at my aunt and uncle’s home, we all sat down to a delicious feast. During the meal, my uncle suggested that we spend the next day at the national rodeo at the Marcus Ranch.
Walking around on the hot day trying to see every exhibit. I remember the day I got my ears pierced. I remember going to the fair and the ride works telling me I wasn't tall enough I remember going to the Mall of America for the first time and it was so much fun seeing how big the mall really was I remember playing computer games after school I remember riding in the front seat of my Dads old red truck. The sun warming my skin and the wind blowing through the window you had to roll down yourself. I remember trying to paint my nails for school and they looked so bad I remember drinking strawberry pop, which is hard to find nowadays I remember when I got my first camera.
The pungent smell of manure would waft down the hallways as students walked to and from class, I was always late to school because I would get trapped behind tractors on the single lane highway, and there were always pickup trucks in the parking lot. That being said, I loved this school with all of my heart. Friday night football would always make the front of our small-town newspaper, our school spirit was incredible, I knew everyone in my high school by name, and the teachers had great relationships with the students. However, the second trimester of my senior year, everything changed.
Goodman and a few others had decided that they would go to the mall and pick up some well needed snacks at the mall. Upon pulling out of the baseball team 's practice field parking lot, John Goodman and his best friend, Jesse Johnson, were too impatient to wait on the semi truck to pass before bolting out onto the slick wet pavement. The tires of Jesse’s sparkling blue corvette lost traction which caused the tires to spin. The entire team watched as the monstrous semi truck plowed into Jesse’s
Around thanksgiving time last year, my grandpa and grandma told my family that we would be going on a trip to the Bahamas. Even better was we were going to the Battle For Atlantis Basketball tournament. This year at the tournament the Wisconsin Badgers were playing. The Wisconsin Badgers are my favorite team. I brought along an autograph ball for the players to sign.
Jack told his mom ok and went to the auction to sell it. Jack started to drive down the road until he stopped at a stop sign and an old man called him by his name and told him if he put race gas in his car he would win all the races so what did jack do he sold the good car and went home and put the race gas in the car that has been sitting in the back yard for longer than he could remember. He then went up to his mom and told her what he did she went in
“We are going to Gatlinburg, Tennessee this summer!” my mom said. My sister and I were very excited to go somewhere for the first time during the summer! My aunt Cheryl and her boyfriend Scott. The day before we were going to leave we needed to find a place to eat. My aunt said, “We should go to The Dixie Stampede!” My mom said, “Okay, I will buy the tickets now!” So we went to The Dixie Stampede!
The city was beaming with proud Americans getting ready for the parade to start. We parked and when we exited the car we realized how hot the day was going to be. My dad checked the weather and the forecast said that the low for the day was 100°. With all the excitement we had left all of our sunscreen and water bottles at home so, before we found a place to watch the parade, we stopped at a little convenience store. Inside my dad told us all to pick out a drink and he would go buy sunscreen.
