By Austin Rust-Tuesday, July 9 at the 128th Annual Adams County Fair had two themes: it was a day to honor senior citizens and members of the armed forces, and a day devoted to health and wellness.The day began with a 5k led by Alex Gold, the cross-country coach from Peebles High School, who ran at the Flying Pig Marathon this year in Cincinnati. Following the 5K, Dr. Bryan Grooms led “Walk with a Doc” at and spoke to walkers about proper hydration.“We’ve always heard that we need eight glasses of water a day for proper hydration,” said Dr. Grooms. “Well, that’s not actually true. The World Health Organization generally recommends that women have four to seven glasses of water per day, and men between six and 11.”“That does include things that are not plain water – coffee, tea, lemonade, fruit juices, etc.,” Dr. Grooms added. “You get the most health benefits from just plain water, but as long as you get the recommended amount, you should be doing okay.”“Walk with a Doc” ended in an air-conditioned space filled with informational booths set up by local healthcare providers and support agencies. Throughout the day, these vendors spoke to senior citizens about the services they provide, and explained the resources available to them.“It’s for seniors to have a day where they can come out and get information about resources and services that maybe they could qualify for,” said Mary Stout, Director of the Adams County Senior Citizens Council, “It also give them a little bit of a good time and a chance to gather.”Prizes were won by those who could answer questions related to health care services available through the various agencies and institutions present at the event, and names were drawn from a hat in a raffle for a long list of door prizes that had been donated by the vendors.Representative Doug Green of Ohio House District 66 emceed the event. He was joined by Representative Brian Baldridge of Ohio House District 90, who spoke briefly and met with all involved. The two representatives , Baldridge and Green , sang “Amazing Grace” as a duet.“I’m glad to be out here today at the Adams County Fair,” said Representative Baldridge. “It’s great to see everybody out and it’s great to see everyone. Our Senior Fair Board and Junior Fair Board just do a great job at the fair, and we have a lot to be proud of.”Music was provided by J.R. Liston and David Vogler, who performed various gospel and bluegrass tunes, including “The Old Rugged Cross”, “Wildwood Flower”, and “The Dream”. Under the shade of the new pavilion in the center ring of the fairgrounds, the Adams County Liberty Band held a concert, performing a number of classic tunes, and later, the Fancy Free Cloggers took the stage, dancing to a number of routines before an audience in the grandstands.Back inside, members of the 4-H Pet Pals Club arrived with service animals – a dwarf rabbit, and a small dog – trained to provide comfort and support to those in need of a companion.A Quilt of Valor was presented to Paul Worley by members of the Scrappy Quilters Quilting Club for his seven years of military service. Worley served in the U.S. Army from 2004 to 2011, with two tours of duty: one in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and another in Operation Enduring Freedom.To end the day’s events, the Oldest Lady, Oldest Gentleman, and Longes -Married Couple were named. The Oldest Lady was Marylou McClellan, age 90, and the Oldest Gentleman was Leslie Hall, age 86.
