This year’s Stevens County Fair will have a patriotic theme. The fair runs from Tuesday, Aug. 6, through Sunday, Aug. 11.

The Spirit of Minnesota Tribute Bell will be on display at the fair. The bell honors veterans. The Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans is the steward of the bell which is sponsored in Minnesota by Wells Fargo.

The bell is to create awareness about veterans, service members and military families.

The annual community appreciation supper starts at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 6. The supper will include a short program about The Spirit of Minnesota Tribute Bell.

Fair board member Mary Hill said the program will also include a local military color guard.
