The smell of sweet and delicious kettle corn
Near the front door of the Farm Progress Show, participants were fascinated by the sweet scent of kettle corn that was made all day long.
“We love to come here,” said Jay Rairig, owner of Pop It Like It’s Hot Kettle Korn Company. “It’s hard to keep track of the number of bags sold, but I’m busy.”
Once the line was formed, Lairig said the stand was headed to the Indiana State Fair and will now be attending next year’s Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa.
Vaccines available to farmers and the general public
NS Macon County Health Department Johnson and Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine were available to visitors to the sanitary tent for all three days.
Stephanie Mallory, a registered vaccine nurse at the Macon County Health Department, said: “Most of the time, people (of the show) are vaccinated and open to learning more about booster shots.”
Mallory, who received more than 12 vaccines at the show, has been classified as having a high infection rate in the state, so the county continues to encourage residents to take precautions, such as wearing masks, to get vaccinated. He said he was doing it.
