Lori Vrtiska Seibel of Lincoln repeated what many voiced: “What a wonderful thing to see the park filled with people, a parade circling the square, music filling the air, and fireworks filling the sky! Thank you all for your terrific work! It was a great day in Table Rock!” Deb Aylor of Table Rock also passed on such words of praise, “All of you on the Fair Committee did an awesome job putting together a fun-filled day for everyone.
