, What a beautiful day it is in June today!  When I was coming to work, the drive down Clifton Road was all bright and sunny and I am determined to have a great day. What about you?  Let's just do it!  First of all, let me tell you that the fair book is at the printer's and will be in our office soon; at the libraries as well and some spots around town.  In addition, it will be on line by the end of the week.  So go to our website as you have done to get to this page and hit "fairbook" and you can see all the things that will be happening, as well as catagories you might want to enter with crafts, photos; etc. 

This year, we are combining all together, the Pre-Jr.; Junior; Teen; House Hold Arts; Horticulture and Floriculture in the same building.  The Dining Hall now becomes the "Exhibitor's Hall".  We're excited.  You can view both the 4-H projects and the Senior Fair projects in air conditioned buildings.  Sounds good!  Also, we are having a special race at the grandstand this year on Wednesday evening in honor of Chip Noble!  There will be some more news on this later, but for right now, please plan to fill the grandstand in his memory. 

4-H/FFA identifications will be handled a bit differently this year; the day of pre-judging for 4-H will be the day the kids pick up their identifications and fair coins.  By bringing proof of their judged projects to our office, they will receive their fair coins and id's.  For FFA-when the kids bring in their projects for display at the fair, that is when they will receive their id's and fair coins. 4-H/FFA kids who sell their livestock only receive id's; no fair coins. 

Thank you to all of you who have congratulated me on being chosen "Secretary of the year" by the Greater Ohio Showmen Association.  You have to be nominated and then to receive the award you must be voted on by all those who represent the fair industry in the Greater Ohio Showmen.  I was completely overwhelmed!  Had no clue!  I still look at the award on the wall and wonder how in the world I got it!  Dan Bullen has been having a great time laughing at me because of my reaction to receiving the award and Amy Test keeps saying "We all knew it"...but I didn't.  My husband even didn't tell me!  It is an experience I will never forget being presented with the award and I am humbled and honored to receive it! 

If you have any questions about the fair, give us a call; 937-372-8621 and we'll do our best to answer them 

Members of the Agricultural Society; your June Newsletter is on the way-should be in the mail to you as I type this.  Thanks for supporting the fair with your purchase of Membership; our Director's must purchase one to be on the Board (no, they don't get into the fair free) and so we hope you will help our Ag. Society grow this year.  With a membership, you must be 18 years and older and a resident of Greene County.  You get to vote for Director of the Fair Board as well. 

Hope to see you at the fair!  Until then; enjoy a glass of lemonade with someone special!  Esther
