The premium book for 2012 is on its way! The printers have processed them and have  shipped them out. The book committee of Chris Slate & Carol Deleppo did a wonderful job as usual. The new edition will be available on our website shortly.

Anyone wishing to receive the premium book can contact  any director. Also, the books are placed around the Litchfield County area in public places, libraries, town hall, post office and stores. So get busy preparing your exhibits to enter into the fair. The general exhibitor's deadline is September 26, 2012.

Scholarships Awarded for 2012

The Board of Directors of the Harwinton Agricultural Society held their  meeting on the Monday, August 13th at the Thomaston Savings Bank in Harwinton. The two recipients for our 2012 scholarships of $1,500.00 each were presented with them at the meeting.

Nicolle Hill received her third award as she enters her Junior year at Eastern College in Ct. Kelsey Cosgrove, our second recipient, is attending her first year of college in PA. We congratulated both of them and wished them success pursuing their careers and furthering their educations.

These scholarships are presented each year. Students can apply for the scholarships and are eligible to receive them even if they had been a previous recipient. Check out the information on the Fair Scholarship section on our website.
