Hot-air balloon rides…

While first scheduled to be a part of this year’s Old Settlers Picnic line-up, Euphoria Balloons of Blair staffers were in Fairmont on Wednesday night giving Fairview Manor residents and other event goers rides. Grafton resident Sue Baumann and the Geneva State Bank donated funds to help make the balloon rides a reality. Geneva Implement provided a tractor to tether the balloon, which reached about 80 feet in the air, for safety reasons. Higher than allowable winds on the Saturday of Old Settlers moved the event to June 26.
