This year at the Monroe Fair – give yourself plenty of time to see the exhibits at the Western Heritage Center. Â Jerry Senner and his volunteers have been working for twenty years on the educational, engaging and interactive exhibits that teach how machines worked in the days before digital. Â It’s a great place for Â school groups, and family outings to see how all the old chainsaws, tractors, threshing machines really worked. Â One of the most funÂ is the model railroad representing how dependent we were on steam and diesel technology. Â It’s truly a special experience – see Â it before, during or after the Evergreen State Fair (Aug. 27th – Sept 7th).
