Seniors Day at the Fair

The Marshall-Putnam Fair will host its “Salute to Seniors” at the fairgrounds in Henry, on Thursday, July 12, 2018 hosted by Marshall County Circuit Judge Mike McCuskey and Retired Putnam County Circuit Judge Scott Shore. The annual program is sponsored by the two hosts, their wives, and the Rotary Clubs of Marshall and Putnam Counties.

The doors to the Hunt Building will open at 8 a.m., when guests will be greeted by local and state office-holders from the two counties. The program will begin at 9 a.m., with music provided by the Henry Torpedo Boys, back by popular demand and known for their fun as well as their great musical talent.  In addition to free entertainment lasting until 11 a.m., there will also be free refreshments and many door prizes donated by local residents and businesses.

In keeping with this year’s fair theme, “SURFIN’-A-Fair,” seniors planning to attend are welcome to dress for the beach.
The morning program is free to all citizens age 65 and over, and their guests. Seniors are encouraged to come early and stay into the afternoon, to enjoy more events throughout the day and all the displays and activities available to the public throughout the weekend. 

The Marshall-Putnam Fair runs from Wednesday, July 11 to Sunday, July 15 at the M-P Fairgrounds on Illinois Route 29 in Henry.  See you at the MP Fair – and at Seniors’ Day, Thursday morning, July 12.
