The Fulton County Fair will feature The Messengers, a local Southern gospel quartet, in concert on Sept. 2 as well as a Christian Music Center featuring local gospel artists Friday through Sept. 6.
The Messengers was formed in the late 1950s by a music teacher at Pettisville High School.
The group broke up after the members graduated, but reformed 10 years later with the original lineup of LaMar Yoder, Wendell Beck, Roger Rupp, and Dan Hostetler. Later, Randy Kauffman sang lead tenor.
