ABBOTTSVILLE – Abbottsville Monuments has obtained additional space at the Great Darke County Fair this year and decided to use part of that space for a new kiosk they built.
It is a four-sided display with two sides housing 55-inch monitors.
“While the primary purpose of the kiosk is to display Darke County Fair history it will also be showing tributes to people who loved the fair and are no longer with us,” said Greg Brown, owner. “This way they can ‘always be at the fair’.”
He went on, “If you have a loved one who really enjoyed the fair, you can set up a free tribute by emailing a picture of your family member (preferably of them at the fair but all are accepted) along with their name, dates (if you choose), and one or two sentences of what they liked most about the fair to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also send them a message on Facebook or bring your picture to their office.”
Persons interested in having historical pictures, items, or stories of the Darke County Fair that they would like to share with fair attendees can use the above methods to get them included in the display. Credit will be given in the display to whoever owns the items.
This year will be Abbottsville Monument’s 42nd year in the same location at The Great Darke County Fair.
“The Brown family, who owns Abbottsville Monuments, has always enjoyed the fair,” he said. “Since they know they are not the only people fond of our county’s annual ‘reunion’ they sincerely hope that this year’s fair attendees enjoy the kiosk they have built for them.”
