DRIVING THE BUS – Trenton Dunn of Vicco was at the controls of this amusement ride as he gave a lift to some of his favorite storybook characters at Isom on Saturday.
The annual Isom Days Festival was held over the Labor Day
weekend on the grounds of the old stock sale. The theme for
this year’s event was “A Moment in Time.” Adults and children
alike appeared to be having plenty of fun when photographer
Chris Anderson visited on Saturday.
