2014 Pima County Fair
just south of Tucson, Arizona was a very successful event. This year an effort was made to display implements behind antique tractors with story boards of information which helped to better tell the story of the past. Thank you all who made it happen.
The event was dedicated to Jim Blair, "Power from the Past" Club Member of
He is the first recipient of this honor. Jim has given his time and talents for many years to the benefit of all.

Jim Blankenship demonstrated some blacksmith skills by forming some hooked steak flippers. Also as a willing teacher he encouraged Jim Blair and his daughter, Dominique to get fired up and hammer some steak hooks for themselves. Spectators seemed to enjoy the glowing production and what dad would not like his daughter to make a hot pointing thing. The blacksmith set up was provided by Joe Mooney.
Blacksmith skills of past
One of the spaces in the building that we refer to as the "Barn", featured people with quilt and knitting projects. Thanks to Jane B., all who wanted to learn loom knitting were able to practice their moves. The large quilt and the blue quilt in the background was made by Barry Hoyte, who was also featured above.
During their time spent at the Fair, twenty fleece lap robes were hemmed by hand to give to an adult care home in the area
A great addition to our many activities.
