Join in the Fun at the Saline Community Fair
A successful Saline Schools Day was held on Wednesday and many Saline Area students and programs were showcased in several different events, from animal shows to the SWWC organizations showcase to the introduction of ambassadors and a most entertaining ag Olympics contest. Introduced as the 2021-22 Saline Community Fair Ambassadors were Emily Liedel, Hailey Malinzcak, Emilly Marciszewski, Octavia Marciszewski, and Adyson Naebeck.
