Tri-Village Community & School Fair, From Old Roots To New Beginnings

The 2015 Tri-Village Community & School Fair was held recently on October 2nd and 3rd. Several contests and events were held this weekend including crowning of the high school king and queen, the Little Mr. & Miss Patriot pageant, Cutest Patriot and pumpkin decorating contests, an auction, a parade, a band and dance performance, the Pinewood Derby, a mini tractor pull, crop and baking contests and two new events were added this year; a car show and alumni baseball game.

Candidates for king and queen, chosen by their classmates, were seniors Knox Morris and Jenna Fisherback, juniors Josh Wiford and Payge Malott, sophomores Camren Munchel and Morgan Sparks, and freshmen Corbin Holzapfel and Breanna Locke. Seniors Knox Morris and Jenna Fisherback won the vote by the student body and were crowned king and queen of the 82nd school fair. Braxton Bales & Ava Camacho were chosen winners of the 2015 Little Mr. & Miss Patriot pageant. Piper Graham won first place in the Cutest Patriot Contest, Paizley Graham was runner-up, and Calvin Crumley placed 3rd.

Over 50 decorated pumpkins adorned the hallway of the main entrance. This contest proved to have the most participation between students and adults. The talent and creativity that went into the carving and decorating of these pumpkins was appreciated by all who attended the event. The school was decorated by students with the school fair theme “Tri-Village Community & School Fair – From Old Roots To New Beginnings”. Contest winners were Mr. Moore's class, Mrs. Bietry's class, and Mrs. Drew's class.

Another highlight of the weekend festivities was the annual school fair auction. Auctioneer Brian Rismiller did an excellent job. Without the support of the area businesses and community this event would not be possible.

The local fire departments participated in the annual parade along with numerous floats and several vintage cars. The 1st place float winner was the Wee Patriots, 2nd place went to the third grade class, 3rd place went to the second grade class, and 4th place went to the Kindergarten Club. A new event added this year was a car show. Winners were: Favorite Dodge – Steve Railsback, Favorite Ford – Joe Stockton, Most unusual paint – Jack Sullenbarger, and Best in Show – Dave George.

Unfortunately, because of inclement weather, the alumni baseball game had to be postponed until the following weekend. Even though the weather was not ideal, the Tri-Village band and dance team moved their performance inside to the gymnasium, while the kids enjoyed various games inside as well.

The Boy/Cub Scouts sponsored a Pinewood Derby race. Winning Best of Show: 1st place Bethany Ashbaugh, 2nd place Grant Jordan and 3rd place Jayden Hollinger. Race winners were: 1st place Wesley Osborne, 2nd place Kyrsten Ross, and 3rd place Kate Gross.
