Lions' country fair shrugs off Mother Nature

Less than ideal weather might have limted the turnout for the New Milford Lions Club's recent fifth annual Country Fair & Car Show.

Yet those on hand Sept. 21 at rustic Harrybrooke Park were glad they persevered through occasional showers.

Among the many enjoyable offerings for Greater New Milford-area patrons were a garden tractor pull, a live broadcast by Kicks 105.5 FM, music by the Red Dirt Road Band, a dog show by the Jersey Disk Devils, vendors, demonstrators, games, food and a zero-turn mower competition.

Numerous vintage cars were on hand, too, for those with that inclination.

Proceeds of the event will help fund the club's many charitable endeavors throughout the year.
