They're coming back! TO THE FAIR. You have asked that we have the Van Dells on stage at the fair, and they will be here on Sunday Evening, July 31, 2016. Some of you haven't met "Moose" yet--the ticket to get into the fair is $6.00 , but there is no charge for the concert. Bring your lawn chairs in you wish. Plan to come join the fun!
If you've ever re-arranged your desk, then you know that for a period of time you just can't find anything. (That goes for my kitchen table at home as well). So, I gave up trying to find "stuff" I needed today and decided to visit with you awhile. Hopefully your holidays were wonderful...and who isn't enjoying these snow-free days? (Other than those who plow snow for a living). We're busy here planning for the fair; the top concert artist (s) will be announced on February 26 and 27; keep your credit card handy to order tickets on MARCH 6th. Rising fast on the charts we predict he will be #1 by July! Don't want to miss this concert. We also have a great line up that Joe Mullins will be bringing us at the grandstand during the fair--he has some folks that love the fair just like Joe does and we thank Joe for doing such a wonderful job to help put together probably one of the greatest country/bluegrass shows the Greene County Fair has had in awhile.
Bob King stopped by the other day to tell me about the upcoming Jeff Morris Memorial FFA Alumni Auction on March 12, 2016 at the fairgrounds. That's when the community brings together their tractors-farm equipment they no longer need, etc. to sell at this auction. There will be "meals on wheels" this year. Gators with hot boxes on the back carrying hot sandwiches to you so you don't have to miss any of the auction. The Dining Room will be open if you want to come "sit a spell".
On February 28th is the FIRST ANNUAL Toy Auction. With Dan Robinette and Ron Johannes doing such a great job planning this event it will probably outgrow the Dining Hall this year. Bob King tells me that they have some special tractors and he is planning to be on the front row waiting for the bid to start.
We still have some livestock checks the kids haven't picked up. Thank you cards must be brought into the office, sealed and stamped and your check will be given to you.
Did you know that it wasn't raining when Noah built the ark? Did you know that planning a fair doesn't happen in June or July? We're doing it now-if you would like to be a sponsor of the fair; put an ad in the fair book, call us at 937-372-8621 and we can fit your budget into our sponsorship! Have a blessed day. Esther
