06/29/2007: "Belated Thank You!"
I would like to publicly thank the kind folks who have volunteered their time over the past three years to staff the booth, judge the entries, assemble the covers, donate prizes and materials and otherwise support Written Word at the San Juan County Fair.
To my great delight, Carrie Lacher has agreed to be this year's Written Word superintendent. She has created an amazing site that includes this year's rules and a list of judges. Please check it out at www.thewrittenwordsjcf.blogspot.com . Be sure to get your entries in (or postmarked) before the July 16, 2007 deadline.
For those of you who are afraid I'll be bored during fair week, don't worry. I've already been hit up to sell brownies for the PTA, volunteer at some booths and I'm looking forward to having the time to build zucchini racers with my sons.
Thank you, island writers, for sharing your work over the past three years and for telling stories that make our little fair a little more special.
