Thanks to everyone who supports the fair

?

Every summer the county fair comes to town. People from every corner of the county come to exhibit, sightsee and experience the fair. It is a three-day venture for which many kids have worked all year to exhibit their animals, works of art, educational displays, and so on. The fair hosts a time for making lifelong memories.

I grew up in 4-H and know that it is where I want to raise my children. The benefits of 4-H are endless and there is something for everyone to experience, learn, and grow. The county fair was a very important part of my childhood and I want to be able to pass those kinds of memories on to my children.

So, as a 4-H parent and fair board member, I would like to say thank-you to all the people of the past, present and future who have had a genuine interest in supporting the fair either with an interest in 4-H and FFA or the event in general.

There are countless people who spend their free time, energy, funds, knowledge and experience to help make the fair a success every year. If I thought I could make a list of everyone who has contributed in some way, I would do it. But I am afraid I would leave someone worthy of the praise off the list, so I won?t.

If you have helped in any way, thank-you. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
