Using funds contributed by Representative Brad Wenstrup, members of the Adams County Junior Fair Board recently purchased a flagpole and erected it in the Martha Rhonemus Memorial Garden adjacent to the Junior Fair Activity Building at the Adams County Fairgrounds. A subcommittee composed of Jordan Crum, Peebles; Morgan Grooms, West Union; and Josie McDowell, Seaman, provided leadership to the effort. Tim Davis, former principal at Peebles High School, donated Sakrete to the project, and DK Auto Sales & Farm Supply, Manchester, donated mulch. Labor was provided by committee members and various Junior Fair Board advisors, including Luke Rhonemus, Donnie McCarty and children, Roger Rhonemus, and John Newman and children.
