Back in time at the North Thompson Fall Fair

!At the 1983 North Thompson Fall Fair the Kershaw family’s three sons showed dairy calves at the fair.  The family also brought one of their milk cows and Bill Kershaw hooked their milking machine up to the vaccum line on their pickup so the cow could get milked at the fair.  Bernie Kershaw says, “People stopped to visit and thought what a good idea it was.  I believe Bill (wearing the cowboy hat) is talking to David Blackwell from Blackwell Dairy in this picture.  Our grand children now show sheep and horses at the fair.” - Photo courtesy of Jane Milburn
