No reunion can endure year after year without having something worthwhile to occupy the exhibitors and spectators. This show had it and some to spare. My wife said to me about a month ahead of time, 'we should be sure to plan for the Pontiac Show.' I agreed happily.

We were met on the grounds by a group of congenial people at the gate. After some discussion, we were told to look up Mr. Brinkman to let him show us where to park. He not only showed us the spot, but he helped us back into the space. He cared!

It promptly began to rain, but believe me it was good to be there, rain or shine. This time was used to visit and just enjoy the country. The rain dampened everything but our spirits. The Horse Show was postponed until Monday. Instead of the Horse Show that rainy evening, the folks gathered to hear a show put on my volunteers on the grounds. These folks really could and did entertain. I mention this especially since it was local talent giving an impromptu performance to avoid disappointment for a great many folks.

There were professional groups on other nites as programmed.

It would take many pages to list the attractions, not the least of which was the extensive Flea Market. Many women would not have come, had not the market been there. There were many items reasonably priced for both men and women, to say nothing of the many things for the younger set. I find that most successful shows try to have something for everyone. Pontiac was no exception in my opinion.
