A beautiful day for the country fair

Dan Freeman, a merchant and member of the Piedmont Community Council, said Saturday was a good day for an Old Fashion Country Fair. The fair was sponsored by the council and the City of Piedmont “It was perfect,” said Freeman. “The weather was good. We had a pretty good crowd. I think we were a little short on people, but all the vendors seemed to be happy. Events like this are so important to a little town like Piedmont.”
