Port VFW's ladies auxiliary serves dinner to Perry Point vets

The Cecil County Fair continues tonight (Friday) and will come to a close Saturday. Look for vendors galore and enjoy carnival rides, lots of food, raffles, games, displays, exhibits, contests, tractor pulls, the Demolition Derby and more. A pink-painted vehicle returned this year for "Smash for a Cure," where folks made a donation and then used a ball peen hammer to smash the gaudy pick-up truck. All proceeds of the "Smash for a Cure" will go Union Hospital's Breast Center. The fairgrounds are on Route 273 at Fair Hill.
