Susie McEntire entertained a Marion County Fair crowd of nearly 450 Sunday at USD 408's Sports and Aquatic Center in Marion.
I was very impressed about the numbers who were there for the type of event that it was, said, Marion Mayor, Mary Olson.
McEntire drew people from Marion, Harvey and Sedgwick counties, and from as far away as Oklahoma.
The Marion Christian Church ran out of tickets, fair manager Kelli Savage said. I had to bring them more. We also sold tickets in Hutchinson, Hillsboro, Lincolnville, Florence, Peabody Cottonwood Falls, and Newton.

Echoing Aurora tragedy, Cowboy Church focuses on faith during adversity
This year's first Cheyenne Frontier Days Cowboy Church service focused on current events, with inspirational music mixed with a sermon emphasizing the
importance of faith in the face of tragedies like the mass shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo. last week. A second service will be offered at 9 a.m. Sunday in the main grandstand at Frontier Park.
By James Chilton
CHEYENNE - This year's first of two Cheyenne Frontier Days Cowboy Church services mixed the sweet with the somber.
Singer-preacher duo Susie McEntire- Eaton and her husband, Mark Eaton, varied between upbeat tunes of affirmation and addressing Friday's movie theater
shooting in Aurora, Colo.
Accompanied by the four-man father-and-sons group The Caballeros, McEntire- Eaton belted out a number of old hymnals interspersed with her
self-penned inspirational Chris-tian country hits.
But it was perhaps her husband's acknowledgement of the Aurora massacre and how it squares with an all-loving God that stuck strongest with the hundreds
A 24-year-old medical student is believed to have been responsible for the mass shooting at a midnight showing of the newest Batman movie, leaving 12
dead and dozens more injured, including small children. Speaking to the tragedy, Eaton acknowledged that, too often in life, incomprehensible
calamities happen to innocent people, and that it can be hard to reconcile that with a benevolent almighty.
"Sometimes bad things happen to good people. But always, God uses stuff, God uses life, God uses hard things for something that he is up to," Eaton said.
"Those of us who are of the Christian faith . when stuff like this happens, we say, 'God, I don't know what's up. I don't get it. This is hard, people
are hurting, I hurt. It's unfair, it's a tragedy, it's a shame - and I don't get it.'
"But instead of demanding, 'What are you up to?' with a clenched fist, we say, 'I don't know, God, but I'm going to trust you anyway.'"
Eaton went on to argue that while faith may come easy during the good times, it is when things go wrong that faith must be at its strongest.
"There's evil in the world, there's hard things in the world, there's tragedies in the world. Good people get sick and bad people get healthy, and
I don't get it folks!" he said. "And the Bible tells me, 'That's OK.' The Bible tells me, ' Mark , you don't have to get it. All you have to do is
Quoting from 2 Corinthians:5, Eaton said faith happens only when people can't see the truth of something for themselves. In contemplating tragic
incidents like the Aurora shooting, he said, faith is most important exactly because people cannot understand the reason for such events.
"Even at the end of Jesus' life, Peter and the disciples still didn't 'get it,'" he said, referring to their confusion over God's reasoning for the crucifixion. Going on to quote from Paul's letter to the Romans, Eaton said,"If Jesus is at the right hand of the father interceding for us, who will separate us from the love of God? Shall trouble, hardship, persecution, famine, danger, nakedness, sword? Cancer? Sons that don't call? Premature deaths? Insanity?
"In all these things, we are more than conquerors," Eaton continued. "For I am convinced that neither death, nor life . nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God."
Lori Faires was among the audience members in attendance. A resident of Aurora, Faires said she was particularly affected by the sermon, noting that she lives less than two miles from the Century 16 theater where the shooting occurred.
"It was moving . just to have faith and stuff, even though we don't understand what's going on and why," she said. "We've just got to keep going and keep moving, and maybe we'll find out."
Faires noted that she has been coming to CFD and the Cowboy Church services for the past nine years, adding that the sermon was just as good as always,
even if it took a different tack toward current events this time.
Speaking after the service, Eaton noted that faith in the midst of tragedy has been funda-mental to Christianity throughout history.
"These are hard times, but they're no harder than times have been before, and they're no harder than times will be down the road," he said. "And we
need strong people to be able to just keep going."
