To the Editor:
Our fundraising season for the Essex County Fair Horse Show has begun! Our first event will be June 8th at the fair grounds. We are doing a gymkhana that is open to the public. Spectators are welcome. We will do 6 games for beginner riders and 10 games for Junior riders (9-13), Senior riders (14-18), Adult riders (19 and over), plus we are having an adult limited class and this is for adults 19 years and older who do not ride gymkhana normally. We will have 50/50 drawings and prize money is 1/2 the money received for each division split between 1st and 2nd place in each division. We also welcome any donations for prizes. It should be a very fun filled day. Bring a dish to share and we will do a buffet style lunch.
We are having a fun day/dart tournament June 21st at the VFW in Peru. There will be horseshoes, darts and pony rides for the kids. We will have a Chinese auction and 50/50 drawings and food.
On July 26th, we will have a bowling tournament at the Willsboro Bowling Lane. This is for the fair as a whole. We will have an earlier kids tournament with a later adult tournament. Will post more information on Facebook and in the Valley News as it gets closer.
