"If You Do What You Have Always Done, You Will Get What You Have Always Gotten." This old adage presents a pleasant challenge for Saint Joseph School. As we move into the fourth quarter of our 145th school year, we continue to be very grateful for the comfort and security of a faith-based educational environment steeped in rich traditions.

These are vignettes of interest, which I find while doing my research. In 1892, a Norwalk lady had a dream or revelation that a large treasure of gold was buried near a house on New State Road near the "Country Club" building at Eagle Creek. So strong was her dream that her father and brother equipped themselves and went to the spot to start digging. Of all things, the property owner objected until they had an agreement giving him half of any treasure found.

But just a few days before Mother Nature caught up with her annual production quota of snow, a welcome sign of warm temperatures and blossoms changed the whole scene.

When the midway lights, the sounds of rides, demolition derby cars and the animals hit the Huron County Fairgrounds in about four months, the Huron County Senior Fair Board will have worked countless hours to get the fair ready. Most recently board members and numerous other volunteers and businesses will have donated their time, services and equipment to make the fairgrounds more inviting. The biggest project on tap this year is making the south parking lot camping area bigger and more inviting. Workers recently have been spending their time upgrading the electric and water within the campground. Up until now, campers only had a power source for 15 amps and now it is being upgraded to 30 amps. The water line supply is also being upgraded to doubling the pipeline. In the past not all the camping spaces had electric and water, now they all will. While they have been upgrading all this they have re-arranged the spaces and parking and have doubled the amount of camping spaces, bringing the available camping to 144 sites.

The show includes songs such as "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," "Our Love is Here to Stay" as well as "Night and Day," and Fitzgerald's-own "A-tisket, A-tasket."
