The theme of this year's Spokane Interstate Fair is "We Have Something to Crow About," and they certainly do. Besides the you-will-have-to-walk-miles-to-see-it-all exhibits and animals, there will be a huge amusement carnival and a low-calorie (so I'm told) food fair. (Are elephant ears edible? Do they have calories?) The fair runs from September 11th through the entire next week but for the non-genealogist-companions of the WSGS conference goers, this will be a really fun thing to do. On both Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:00 PM (September 11 and 12) there will be the N.P.R.C. Rodeo to attend!!!
In a previous post, Charles Hansen outlined some of the other things non-genealogist-companions (NGCs ??) can do...like visit Spokane's many antique shops, ride the historic Looff Carousel, feed the ducks in Riverfront Park or just plain go shopping at Auntie's Bookstore.
So you dedicated genealogists, bring these NGCs along in September when YOU come to the WSGS conference. They will be happily out of your hair while you're indulging in your thing.
