Accordion Jamboree at the County Fair

We got down to the Ag Pavilion this afternoon for the Accordion Jamboree. We haven't missed it in the last several years at the County Fair. The fair crowd was overflowing but we lucked into a parking spot near the Pavilion door. After taking a load to the Recycle Center early this morning, we drove down through the fair grounds and even then there was a lot going on. We were pleased to see Leonard Nemitz back in the group with his base horn and singing voice. He is in the back row and doesn't show nor does the drummer and guitar player. Our friend here in Seward, Franklin Hronik is center front. Jean (Sousek) Rath led the group. Elaine is shown visiting with her afterward. Her 92 year old Dad still plays with the group and told me he learned the words to all the songs first and then learned to play them by "ear".
