Big Weekend at the Morgan County Fair

Your Morgan County Bicentennial Celebration Committee had a busy weekend at the Morgan County Fair.  Not only did we unveil our Bicentennial Bison, but the Bicentennial Quilt will be on display through Wednesday.  Please stop by our booth and say "hi" and enter our contest to name our bison. You also need to stop by the Morgan County History and Genealogy Association booth and view a copy of their giant county map.  Copies of it will be donated to every county school, thanks to a fundraising effort from the Morgan County Leadership Academy.
