Renewal of a tradition

 There were no carnival rides during the 2020 edition of the Ridgeland Fair, nor did the National Tractor Puller’s Association hold the regional competition that has drawn thousands to the village each year. But the fair did include the familiar Labor Day parade, as hundreds lined Main Street for the big event at 1 p.m. Monday, Sept. 7. Kicking off the parade were these members of Willard L. Hinzman American Legion Post 511, from left, Arne Thompson, Vern Gilbertson, Mike Steffe, Bruce Steffe, Butch Baldwin and Ray Glaser. Photo by Mark Bell
