Pat and Trish Betsinger, owners of Horseshoe Septic Service of Browerville, had a drawing for a Bike Giveaway at the Todd County Fair. The drawing was for a 20” boys Huffy bike and a 20” girls Huffy bike. The drawing was held at the Saturday night Grandstand Show. The winners were: boys bike—Patrick Perish of Clarissa, girls bike—Sandra Steuck of Grey Eagle.

With the annual Todd County Fair to be held approximately two weeks later than it has been during former years, the management is making plans for a record-breaking number of exhibits in all the fair departments.

The local OTW’ers traveled to Grey Eagle last Sunday afternoon and engaged the Eagles in the last scheduled game for this season. The locals came home with another win, having taken Sunday’s contest by 5 to 3. The locals lineup included Frank, Olin, Zins, V. Mace, A. Mace, W. Mace, Koski, Nalezny, T. Iten and F. Mace. Archie hurled a very good game for the locals, striking out a total of 10 and allowing only five hits.
