One of the highlights of the fair, which took place at the First Church of God in Far Rockaway last Saturday, was a visit by The American Museum of Natural History's Movable Museum. The Harmony Steel Orchestra, followed by a youth concert in the evening, provided the entertainment for the July 28 event.
