Countdown Begins!

The countdown to the Harwinton Fair is only 32 days. Things have begun getting busier with work on the fairgrounds, setting buildings up, and preparing all that's neccesary to put on the Fair. All members are encouraged to volunteer any time they can spare. It will be definitely appreciated.

The Premium Books are now available and have been mailed. Anyone needing one can check out our website section for entry forms, submitting exhibits, and information on what's happening at the fair this year. If there are questions, please contact any director. They will be glad to help.

Volunteer Appreciation Picnic

On Sunday, August 16th we held our annual appreciation picnic at the fairgrounds for all the people who have given their time to the fair. We had approximately 70 people attending. Good food and conversation were enjoyed by all.

Our annual scholarship award was presented to Molly Tower, this year's only recipient, who received an award in the amount of $1,000.00. Molly received our non agricultural scholarship. There were no applications for a student attending college in an agricultural field.

There was a test run for our First Annual Skillet Tossing Contest. Several women gave it a try and said they would definitely be there on Saturday morning, at 10:30 on October 3rd. Check out the information for this new event. It should be fun for all.
