Man dies near fair gate
A Leffingwell Road man died Sunday night while leaving the Canfield Fair. Fair Police Chief Billy Arnaut said the man was older, but he did not have his name. He said the man had heart problems and collapsed near a fair gate.
Donation to memorial
A group of Civil War re-enactors donated $100 Monday to the Mahoning Veterans Memorial. Representatives from the 29th Ohio Volunteer Infantry presented the donation to J.P. Brown III, the state commander for AMVETS, at the memorial. The re-enactors said they appreciated that they had been allowed to camp next to the memorial.
Robinsons to return
The Robinson Family Singers will return to the Canfield Fair in 2003. The fair board approved a motion Sunday to bring the family back. The board's contract with the family for next year is expected to cost between $13,000 and $14,000. Fair Board Member Bob Rose noted that the family sets up its own show and doesn't require the help of fair employees.
First for decorations
The Education Building at the Canfield Fair was awarded first place in the Red, White & amp; Blue decorating contest, said George Roman, a fair board director; the Hay & amp; Grain Building was awarded second place.
The Red, White & amp; Blue decorating contest was held in conjunction with the 2002 fair's Pride in America theme.
