Rambler Trade Show a smashing success

FTLComm - Tisdasle - Friday, April 8, 2005
The RECPlex auditorium and the curling rink are crammed with this year's exhibitors at the Rambler Trade Show. Local and out of town vendors and company representatives have displays and knowledgeable staff on hand to give the visitors a real experience. From jewelry to artwork, the working agricultural equipment to the frivillous, there is a little bit of everything and local clubs and service organisations have their booths and tables to make their contribution to the event.

I spent from twelve until five at the show Friday afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed the displays, my smoky, beef on a bun and the friends and neighbours I had a chance to meet and talk with. The show opens at ten Saturday and is the best free event you will see for some time.
