Friends of the Fairgrounds: Howard and Hugh

Meet Howard and Hugh, who walk the Fairgrounds 2 to 3 times a week (more now that the weather is warmer). These long-time friends have been walking the grounds for about 4 years, and do it for “health reasons and because of all the friendly people they meet on their walks).  Always happy to see you out here, Howard and Hugh!
