2014 Fair Contest Winner Hits a Bulls-Eye!

With over 530 guesses this year, there was ONE person that hit the bulls-eye…it was Tom Bardin, Milford Center, Ohio. He correctly guessed the right number of  71 candy bulls-eyes in the jar.   The tie-breaking question was, “Wayne County Ranks #1 in the state with # of Milk Cows. In the US, how many major breeds of dairy cattle are there?” That answer is SIX : Ayrshire, Brown Swiss, Guernsey, Holstein, Jersey and Milking Shorthorn.

We also had a drawing for a free Wayne County Map and that was won by Mrs. Gerber of Kidron. We are selling those maps as well as plat books in our office.
