Find out how new furnaces allow the use of grains, corn, pellets and other wood products for heating.
There’s plenty of free parking.

At 12:30, there will be bathtub races, which are a crowd-pleaser for sure. On Sunday at 1 p.m., the Lawn Tractor Pull demonstration is a must-see. Cheer on the 4-H members as they chug along Albert Street, just south of River Street.
