Four year old Laura Garcia’s eyes lit up as she looked over the Lego entries ready to be judged at the Williamsburg Grange Fair Saturday. Her favorite, she said, was the one with cupcakes on it.

The entire community had been invited by the grange to enter items into a variety of categories to be judged. In addition to Legos, there were vegetables, canned and baked goods, photography, flowers, crafts and much more.

Gloria Black stood in the middle of the grange hall, camera in hand, and took photos of every flower display to send to her sisters in Colombia.

“I’m taking photos for my sisters so they feel like they are here with me,” she said.

Master of the Grange, Candy Smith, said she was pleased to see how many entries there were in spite of the statewide drought that has affected crops.

A bake sale, vendor booths and games for kids and a fundraising auction rounded out the festivities.

All of the proceeds from the baked goods sale and the auction will be used for regular upkeep and maintenance at the Williamsburg Grange.
