There are four candidates in the pageant this year. They are Ashley Desimone, Brittany Bryant, Claire Weadock and Courtney Zmich.


The crowd gathered in the Pleasant Ridge Elementary School cafeteria was all smiles Tuesday afternoon.

Why wouldn't they be? The 50 or so kids in the audience were with their friends from the Saline Community Education summer camp. And they were participating in and watching the annual summer camp talent show.


The Saline Community Fair is looking for volunteers to assist with various activities prior to and during the 83rd annual fair.  It takes many people to make this all volunteer fair run smoothly and to make sure a variety of activities are offered to the fairgoers. Several new things will be held during this year’s fair and the fairboard is hoping that additional community members will want to be involved and help with some of the programs.
