From Esther’s Desk:  First and most importantly our thoughts and prayers go out to those who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey.  We, at the Fairgrounds were honored when Randy Arnett from Moorman’s Towing included us to be a partner to send items to Texas. We were able to gather together many bags of clothing as well as 2 skids of water.  As we went out to his lot, we found Larry Persinger, Custom Cabs and Trailers with a truck and trailers that he brought to handle the hundreds of items bound for Texas.  Unloading a HUGE box truck was Dave and his crew from Kettering/Soin/Greene Memorial.  They donated items such as masks, sterile clothing, etc.  WORKING TOGETHER!  That is what it is all about.  All these items were headed to Texas and to our own Task Force One from Ohio, who were already there helping.  I know I have missed those who also had items to be loaded on the trailers; THANK YOU-EACH ONE-!  And NOW, we need to keep our prayers toward Texas and include Florida and the Eastern Coast—Wow!  So many people affected by traumatic incidences!  PRAYERS!

To answer many questions which I have had asked of me:  Yes, we are glad the fair is behind us, but we are already planning for the 2018 Greene County Fair.  We haven’t selected a theme yet-any ideas?  We would like to get some feedback from you-e-mail me at estherpierson@gmail.com for suggestions we can use for 2018. 

So many thank-yous:  To our Sponsors who year after year plan to share with us financially to help our fair to keep going forward.  We are a privately owned-NOT COUNTY OWNED- fairground and we depend on your generous support!  THANK YOU! To our Fair Board I say THANK YOU for handling situations that result in a peaceful resolution, but you get all the blame.  THANK YOU to each and every committee member-chairpersons of the committees-Volunteers-all who work together trying to coordinate all the schedules, shows, etc.  You are appreciated!  And to my office staff; Joyce Swearingen, who has been here more years than we can count!!  Sarah Young, who not only helped me with the Hamvention parking, but singlehandedly typed the fair book this year and once again organized the livestock sales. She is a virtual nonstop worker!  Sarah Hawkins George returned for her final year of working at the fair!  She has been a blessing to this office-for years-that makes her sound old, but she isn’t.  I have watched her grow into a beautiful lady, who found a handsome prince, and they got married.  She wants to spend the summer doing things with Christopher.  Can’t blame her.  Thank you to Isabela Martin who always was willing to help in the office any way she could.  To all of you!  THANK YOU!  I couldn’t have managed without you!  To our maintenance men; Lloyd Davis, Warren Travis and Mark Slayer-THANK YOU for working so hard during the fair, but also for your loyalty and dedication to our fairgrounds the other 51 weeks of the year. 

And last-but not least-THANK YOU to those reading this letter for your support by attending the fair rain or shine!  You are those people whom we love to come in and say “hi” at the office so we can see how your kids have grown; catch up on the latest in your family; we kinda feel like a family reunion.  Can’t wait to see you in 2018.

Until then, we have a lot of work to do…..by the way, how you like the flag plaza this year.  Lots of hard work!  But it surely enhances our fairground!  THANK YOU to all of those involved!

Until next time……think of how blessed are by God to live in the United States of America!
