Hope everyone is enjoying the nice rains we have had and the cooler weather. The first day of fall is not far away.

You may enter items in the following categories: canning, food preparation, crafts and domestic arts, agricultural exhibits, recipes, flowers, clothing, photography, and scrapbooking, posters, and genealogy and family heirlooms. First, second, and third place ribbons will be given and cash awards.

Vendors wanting to set up and sell their wares the day of the "Fair On The Square" should call and reserve a booth. You may call 931-527-3922 or 931-527-0032 to reserve a booth or ask any questions about the fair.

The Richland Middle School and High School Cheerleaders will be performing the day of the fair. Ms. Hood is the sponsor of the cheerleaders.

Make your plans now to be in Lynnville, Tennessee on Saturday, Sept. 25 for the "Fair On The Square." There will be something for everyone.

The "7th Annual Truck and Tractor Pull" will be held on Friday and Saturday evening, Sept. 10 and 11 at the Robert Dunnavant Memorial Park in Lynnville, located on Mill Street. Each evening, the pull starts at 6 p.m. and bring your lawn chairs. Children under six years of age will be admitted free. On Saturday at 8 a.m., David Dunbar-mobile Dyno-Diesel Performance Motor Sports will be at the pull. The Richland High School FFA will have concessions.

Letters have been sent out to all alumni of The Robert B. Jones High School and friends to help raise money for the Robert B. Jones Memorial Library and Museum in Lynnville. The building the library and museum was located in was sold. The library and museum are in storage at this time. We need to raise money to build a building or purchase one. A Library is so important to our community and a museum is needed to house memorabilia, trophies, class pictures, etc. from Jones High School. If you are a graduate of Jones High School and did not receive a letter, please send your address to Nancy Jo Hollis, P.O. Box 55, Lynnville, TN 38472. Our goal is to raise $40,000 for the library and museum. If you want to make a contribution to the library and museum, send it to "Library Friends", P.O. Box 66, Lynnville, TN 38472. With Jones High School closed, The Robert B. Jones Memorial Library and Museum is a lasting tribute for generations to come. Please take a few moments and send a contribution for this worthwhile endeavor.

Christmas is around the corner, and it is not too early to start thinking about the "Lynnville Christmas Village" that will be held on Saturday, Nov. 13, in the C. T. Reid Theater. To reserve a booth to sell your wares, contact 931-527-3922 or 931-527-0032. Last year was the first year for Christmas Village in Lynnville and it was a great success. Start making plans to attend the "2nd Annual Lynnville Christmas Village."

Hope everyone has a nice Labor Day.
