LETTER- Expo Center will make WC Fair better

  Email   Print

To the Editor:

Now that the Wilson County Expo is a reality and not just a dream, I think about my mother. About 10 years ago, my mother, about 70 years young, made the comment, "Wilson County needs a coliseum at the fairgrounds." She was always a lady of insight. When we, as a family, worked at the Raleigh, N.C. State Fair, a 100-acre fair, a coliseum was packed each night with events and concerts. She met many famous people and attended all the events.

When I would take her to Paducah, Ky. to the big quilt show, parking six blocks away, she would say it again, "We need a coliseum and to have our own quilt shows. Lebanon has some of the best quilters." I'm happy to say her dream of a coliseum (Expo) will soon be a reality with everyone's hard work.
