Fair Princess Merannda Chaffee joined us at the Summer Reading Program last Thursday.  Queen Sarah and Princess Halee were unable to attend, but Merannda answered all of our questions about the Fair.  The kids now know how to enter items in the fair and we hope to see many of their projects there next month.  In keeping with the theme of the fair, "Magic in the Air", we made our own magic wands.  We also enjoyed some madlibs and some scrumptious princess cookies.  Thank you to Shari Chaffee for providing the fun craft project and to Merannda for reading to us and spending the afternoon with us.  We are all excited for the upcoming County Fair.
