Exeter 14 and Under team wins district softball tournament and takes fourth place at State.

Exeter Fun Days was held.  Some of the highlights included:

The Kid and Pet Parade was held at 5 p.m. downtown and the participants walked a block and then were announced as they entered the street dance area.  The Exeter Volunteer Fire Department held their annual BBQ serving pork sandwiches, hot dogs and chicken.  Also available in the street dance area were a dunk tank and a bounce house (sponsored by Perennial Public Power District).  Check in for the Bullhead tournament was held during the street dance.


Before the entertainment began, Exeter Chamber of Commerce President John Graham presented the Exeter Fun Days Citizen of the Year award.  This was the first year the award has been given.  Members of the Chamber nominated citizens who have made a difference in the community of Exeter and then voted on the winner.  The first winner of the Exeter Fun Days Citizen of the Year award was Erma Adamson.


Adamson spends hours each week picking up trash throughout the community.  She has also donated a number of very attractive trash receptacles in the downtown area.  She is always working hard to make sure the community looks great.


After the presentation, Rusty Nichol performed at the street dance followed by Who’s Bill Anyway.
