Director calls this year’s Common Ground Country Fair ‘one of best ever’
Kennebec Journal - 9/27/2011.

Unity: The weekend's Common Ground Country Fair gave people a chance to catch up with their friends and neighbors – about 59,000 of them. "This is really a Maine fair," said fair director Jim Ahearne, who added that 600 farms and businesses from the state took part in the 35th annual celebration of rural living.

Midcoast residents were among the 1,300 vendors, exhibitors and educational presenters at the 2011 Common Ground Country Fair in Unity Sept. 23, 24 and 25. Whether they were preparing food for nearly 60,000 fairgoers, teaching them how to grow and use Maine's wealth of plants, providing entertainment and information, running livestock through their paces or selling crafts and other products, smiles were seen across the fairground.
