Possibly "Love Story" will be more apropos as'the theme for the event to take place Aug. 8, opening, night of the 1974 Redwood Empire Fair. That evening's ceremony will be cherished by a young Ukiah couple who will recite their marriage vows on the stage at the main grandstand prior to the selection of this year's Mjss Redwood Empire Fair Queen. Michael John Lozano, a carefree young Lothario, was employed by the 12th District Fair as part of the summer maintenance crew for several years until Uncle Sam sent him "greetings" and Mike was off to Korea to do his'thing. Several letters from Mike indicated his longing for the green grass and beautiful flowers-and trees at the, Redwood Empire Fairgrounds and that he would willingly trade Korea's sub-zero weather for the gentle rains of Mendocino County. After his return home, Mike assisted at the fair when he could. Spring came to the valley and love came to Mike in the form of a young, willowy, beautiful blue-eyed blonde named. Alice Lynn Simila. When they set their wedding date for August, what more appropriate setting for their wedding than Michael's "home away from home." George Goulding, Hollywood, will provide the organ background music with Dr. Elmer Schmitt of the Ukiah Ministerial Association tying the knot. In addition to the bride's own bridesmaids, the 12 lovely queen contestants will serve as honorary bridesmaids. Many of the merchants throughout Mendocino County, intrigued with the idea of the wedding, are donating items to start this young couple off on the road to matrimony. Local supermarket and radio station owner Woody White has indicated he will donate an all- expense honeymoon to some exotic place for the young couple.
