The Kids
Recognizing fifteen outstanding young men and young women selected for their work and accomplishments in agriculture and family & consumer sciences

Country
“It’s All About the Flag…” integrating the American Flag into the body of the fair program. Playing a medley of patriotic songs just prior to each event in the main arena and then having volunteers, youth and adults, carry the American flag to a rousing rendition of “America the Beautiful/God Bless America.” Incorporating the flag as a decorative effort throughout the fair in plants, flowers and at the entrance of our buildings. Reminding our guests of flag etiquette and respect.

The County Fair
Over the past three years we have created a county fair of memories, bringing back into the fair many events and activities we remembered from fairs past. We invited back organizations and community groups who had long since stopped participating and create a safe, family oriented fair program with more things to do anytime someone chooses to come to the fair – on the weekend or any late afternoon or evening during the week.
