It always warms my heart to see the gypsy caravan of carnival workers overtaking the lot behind communications center. Uh, not really. Seriously though, has the Chamber ever thought about about any variety? It's been the exact same rides, games and food stands in the exact same spots for years. How about some change, make things a little interesting. Also heard about the gigantic 50/50 raffle, supposedly being the biggest anywhere. I guess they've recovered from the humiliation of Walter being scammed by some guy claiming to be Australian just because he could throw out a "G'day mate!" with a fake Crocodile Dundee accent. That was classic.
