The News is expressing the
sentiments o f the community in
herewith thanking the board of
directors of the East Clackamas
County Fair, for their hard work
and tireless efforts in making-
last week’s fair a big success.
We also wish to congratulate the
winners o f the various prizes and
condole with the losers, both o f

1916 fair a better one than its

though this highly valued product
can ultimately be grown in this
county and with continued ex­
