Catching up on some belated information, I'd like to pass along a letter I recently received from Cleo McCoy, who supervised the herb department at the Anne Arundel County Fair. The letter was delayed, she said, because of a death in her family.
"The 1993 Anne Arundel County Fair was once again a splendid success. As chairman of the herb department, I can attest to the many individuals and much dedication necessary to make even a portion of this event occur. As there are no paid staff to work on this happening, the outcome depends solely on the efforts of community volunteers," she wrote.
McCoy went on to praise the work of the members of The Friendly Thyme Herb Club.
"Renee Bivans, June Burton, Phyllis Clements, Lenora Ferrin, Mary Goode, Richard Hood, Leslie Kowaleswski, Joan Krammes, Sue Latini, Helen Patterson, Peggy Swift and Cindy Swiss spent many hours accepting entries, setting up for judging of awards, arranging entries and donating herb goodies for a lovely herb tea."
McCoy offered her thanks to the members for their contributions. "Without the time and energy of persons like them, our fair would not be nearly the success it has been.
