This year we are offering you a challenge rather than a quiz.
We are asking you to get to know some VIP’s. That’s the Very Important People whose dedication, hard work and perseverance make the great Grange Fair happen.
You will need a device that takes a picture, be it a camera, a phone, or other electronic device. You will need to be in the picture yourself, accompanied by one of the VIPs listed below.
Get as many pictures as you can, bring them to the Emporium to be verified, and you will be entered in the contest.
Never miss a local story.
Scores are based on the total number of different categories of VIPs that you have pictured. If there are ties, a random drawing will determine the winner.
You can only enter once and once your have submitted your entry, you will not be able to add to it. The deadline for entry is Wednesday, Aug. 28 at noon. Winners will be announced that evening.
We hope you enjoy meeting all these wonderful folks. Please be courteous when you ask the VIP if she or he will join you in the picture and be sure to say thanks for all they do.
