THE BLUFFTON NEWS. BLUFFTON, OHIO who has served as vice-president of the Allen county fair board since re-organization of the group on an expanded basis three years ago, has declined to run for re-election to the board of directors. In presenting his annual report as vice-president as he attended his last meeting last Friday night, Dil ler made several recommendations re garding future operations of the fair. Pointing out that the first Allen county fair was held in 1851, Diller urged the society “to put this 100th anniversary fair on better than ever by showing the growth and advance ment of our county’s agriculture, transportation, industry, youth move ments and government.” He urged that directors begin at once to set up plans for the exposi tion next summer, and not to wait until spring “to start the ball roll ing.” Other recommendations of the out going official included a study of costs of past fairs to govern budget plans for the future: appointment of society members other than di rectors to all committees planting of trees on the new fairgrounds east of Lima immediate planning for at least one building on the new grounds, with this being financed in some manner to be worked out by the board of directors. “I still believe a tax levy or bond issue can be passed in Allen county for fairgrounds,” Diller decrared. But he contended that detailed plans should be drawn up with a coliseum type building included in the pro ject. At the close of the session Diller moved that the promotions commit tee, which sponsored the recent un successful tax levy drive, remain active and take immediate steps to promote some type of financing for improvements to the fairgrounds. The motion carried.
