Fair Dii'ectors Meet. I
At the court house on Satur
day, March 13th, a meeting of
directors of the Washington Par
ish Fair was held and the follow
I ing officers elected for 1920:
F. B. Bateman, President.
R. L. Burris, Vice President,
SJ. B. Lindsley, Secretary.
All plans are to be formulated
and the business gotten well in
hand at an early date so that no
thing will stand in the way of
the greatest success the associa
tion has ever achieved.
One important action agreed
upon at this meeting was to sta
tion a cashier on the grounds to
pay all premiums on the last day
of the fair, so that no delay nor
inconvenience will be suffered by
the prize winners.
The date of the 1920 fair will
be announced after the first
meeting of the new officers aiid
board of directors.
