Horn of plenty

The city approved a request from the Fall Fair Core Group for the use of the Rossland Arena for their annual Fall Fair.

The city approved a request from the Fall Fair Core Group for the use of the Rossland Arena for their annual Fall Fair in conjunction with Golden City Days in September.

“Last year’s Fall Fair was a huge success and the Fall Fair Committee appreciates the tremendous help we receive from the city and the employees,” read a letter to council.

The amount of the request was “minimal,” and was within the amount allocated in the budget for the fall fair for in-kind donations.

The group requested permission to close a portion of Spokane Street on the east side of the arena again this year for their outdoor petting zoo and children’s activity area.

They also asked for six cement sign bases from the Public Works Department for use in this area.

From the Recreation Department they requested 75 rectangular tables and 50 chairs, as well as 10 round tables that were stored at the Miners’ Union Hall.

The specific dates and times for use of the arena are: Thursday, Sept. 5 (6-9 p.m.); Friday, Sept 6 (11 a.m. to 9 p.m.); Saturday, Sept 7 (7 a.m. to 8 p.m.).
