The upcoming USPS State and County Fair Stamps are greeting us on this Friday morning. It is the first day of Summer 2019, the longest day of the year. The Old Farmer’s Almanac is sharing, “In 2019, the June solstice is Friday, June 21, at 11:54 A.M. EDT. ”

I’m thinking of Beach Music. The Embers schedule is showing them performing today at the Caroline County Agricultural Fair in Ruther Glen, VA this weekend.

USPS Stamp Announcement 19-25: State and County Fairs Stamps

First, speaking of County Fairs, in yesterday’s USPS Postal Bulletin it includes the upcoming State and County Fair Stamps. The four-set commemorative stamp set is arriving July 25. It is only available in panes of 20 of the Forever stamps.

Four whimsical, se-tenant stamps celebrate the fun of America‘s state and county fairs. The stamps were designed to work together as a panorama of fair activities, while each stamp also works as an individual picture:

Farmers unloading produce behind a white fence.

A child holding a chicken sits atop the same fence, with carnival rides — a Ferris wheel and merry-go-round — in the background.

Fairgoers admiring the livestock behind the fence while others walk, balloons in hand, toward a sweets stand, with carnival rides in the background.

Children at the sweets stand buying treats from the vendor.”

Here’s to a great summer ahead! Join me for my Saturday blog post tomorrow.
