The Fair is Coming!

The Fair is just 34 days away. Most of the major projects have been completed. Now it's putting the finishing touches on everything.

On August 17th, we held a pig roast and picnic for our workers and volunteers and other individuals have done so much for our fair. Approximately 85 people were in attendence. It was a beautiful day and a great day was had by all. Ernie Schultz entertained us with his accordion playing.

The two recipients of our scholarships this year were presented with $1,000.00 each. Mary Orefice received our agricultural award and Amy Symonds received the non agricultural award.

The restroom & workshop siding is complete and the new tile office floors are now done too.

Look for our premium book that has been mailed. It can also be found in many locations throughout the area. Or call Lisa Shimels, our secretary if you can't locate one.

Tuesday and Thursday nights have been designated worknights now that the fair is getting closer. We could use some help with weeding and getting the grounds ready for fairtime.

Work still continues!

This Tuesday was another worknight at the fairgrounds. Everyone including the directors, members, and volunteers are all busy getting that "To Do" done. Before you know it the Fair will be here. So far, all pavillions are up and in place. The new tile floor in our offices is partially complete. The interior walls of the offices now have a new coat of fresh paint!! The new northend soda booth is now on the midway with the finishing touches being done this week. Our new Fair Merchandise Building is 95% complete. The floor in building #2 (the main exhibit building) has been prepped and skim coated. It looks absolutely great. Another fantastic job.

Our painting crew with Jim Curtis has been busy putting fresh paint on the display cases in the buildings and anything else that needs new paint.

The workers have started siding the Restroom Building and Workshop front. This will make a big difference with the appearances of our buildings.

Our premium book for 2008 is at the printer's now and should be going out by the end of this week. So be on the lookout for them.

The Fair now has internet hookup and an e-mail address

The new gates at the entrance of our grounds have been installed and finishing work is just about completed.

Anyone interested in helping out can just show up on any Tuesday night from 5:30 p.m. on. Our garden could use some weeders too!
