I The audit for the past fiscal I fiscal year and the appropriation ] for tho present fiscal year were both approved Laundroniiat Nears Completion All the equipment has now been moved into Huntley's new laundro¬ mat. In approximately one month, the laundromat should be ready to open for business. In the past few weeks, the washers, dryers, water softeners, and other equipment ha\t been arriving in town. The dryers presented a little bit of a problem because they did not fit through the front door. This prob lem was .solved last Saturday, July 8, when Arthur Schultze and men fro"~ Heinemann Hardware took out one of the large plate glass windows facing Main Street and put the dryers into the building in this way. In all. there are 10 small wash¬ ers, two large washers, and four large dryers. The two large wash¬ ers will be especially nice for Huntley as it will enable people to wash their large 9 x 12 rugs and other large materials which would not ordinarily be cleaned in CONTINUED ON PAOE 2 NEW LAUNROMAT . . . Neiv Buildings on McHenry Co. Fair Grounds The 1961 McHonry County Fair dates are set for Aug. 3 thru Aug. 6. In the past several months, Carl Bault, newly elected fail president and his board members have been busy getting the stage set for another one of McHenry County's annual events. County 4-H'ers have been work¬ ing countless hours shaping up thoir projects, the projects range from top quality dairy cattle on down to tasty pastries. The scene of the 13th Junior 4 H Fair is at the county fair- grodunds on Rt. 47 east of Wood¬ stock. Some 1100 exhibitors are expected to be competing for the top prize, tho coveted blue ribbon. A brand new commercial ex¬ hibit building is nearing comple¬ tion and will bo in use at tho fair this year. II is 60x120 feet and will make more room for the commercial exhibits which were badly needed. The 4-H Food stand will be housed in one cor¬ ner of the building which will re¬ place their old lend stand used in previous years. The new build ing also has women's rest rooms and an office space. Also -two new cattle barns are being erect¬ ed and the fair board hopes to be able to eventually replace all live¬ stock tents with permanent build¬ ings for all livestock. The Home Bureau and the other commercial exhibit building have been newly painted inside. 4-H Federation boys and girls have planted flow¬ ers and Loren Massey, past presi¬ dent of the fair, has a newly laid- out plan for outside exhibits which should be inviting toall, both exhibitor and fair bo-ers. This year will be the 2nd an¬ nual track meet to be held at the fair.

Mr. Barrett, the F.F.A. advisor of Huntley( is now taking down names of boys to enter their crops and pri-/.e live st<x;k in this affair. In all, there will be F.F.A. members from 20 schools from Lake, McHenry, Boone, DeKalb. etc. Counties collecting the prize. Also during August the young agricultural minded people will have an opportunity to partici¬ pate in the McHenry County ju¬ nior and open-lass fair.

Kelley, treasurer of the Huntley Com¬ munity Credit Union reports that during the first half of 1961 the credit union loaned out to persons working or living in the Huntley area $302,8244.69 and during tho same time the members paid back $224,185.30 which makes a gain of $78,759.39 in loan volume. Mr. Kelley rei)orts a very active loan demand at the credit union. Money order business is now on the gain due to the fact that the Post Office Department has increased their fees on money orders. The credit union office is open for busi¬ ness at 9:00 a.m. and closes at 5:00 p.m. every business day ex. cept Thursday and on Thursday the office is closed all day. Any emergency can be handled by phoning Huntley 3691. The mem¬ bership in the local credit union is approaching the 1,000 mark with 995 members active on June 30, 1961. Henry Roselys ^witk Fence Henry loselyn, 71, who li\es east of town on the Gilberts Blacktop has just completed woork on a new fence in front of his property. Mr. Roselyn started work tn his fence two years ago. First,, he planned the fence and drew out blue prints so that every minuie detail would be exact. The fencfr pictured above is made from 12 steel wheels taken from old tower cultivators, 13 pieces of ricket fence, and 28. posts. Mr. Rof.elyn did the work on the fence all by himself and made most of the parts by hand. When the fence was completed, he painted it silver. It makes a very unusual attractive landmark on the Gil¬ berts Blacktop. Mr. Roselyn also has other hob¬ bies to go along with his active farming career. He makes frames and has 23 different varieties of trees growing on his property. All of these trees he planted by himself. He also, from what we hear, is an excellent square dance caller.
