The Firemen’s Booth at the Ag Fair

Bob Holt of the West Tisbury Fire Department flips burgers at the Agricultural Fair each August. We gave him a disposable camera last year and asked him to shoot what he sees from his perch. “It was bloody hot behind the grill,” says Bob. “Thursday was the biggest day the hamburger booth ever had, and I’ve been doing this at least fifteen years. My two sons Ron and Bobby helped out. When I stepped out of the booth, I was covered in grease.” Bob most loves the shot of the youngster whose arms are stretched out in happy anticipation of a cheeseburger. The booth raises money for high-school scholarships and the needy.
