, WOW! What a fair! THANK YOU to our fantastic sponsors who dipped way down deep this year to allow us to bring you Cole Swindell/Clark Manson and other events to make our 175th year special at the Greene County Fair. THANK YOU-to all of you who attended the fair, purchased food from the vendors and bought livestock from the 4-H/FFA sale on Thursday and Friday evenings. We are overwhelmed at the response to the fair.
For those who think being a board director is an easy job-did anyone notice how hard they worked before, during and after the fair? Setting the fair up is a task-well, even before that when at the monthly meeting, the fair was discussed and decisions made. Then comes fair week when "if anything is going to go wrong, it does". Our Board Members got a workout fair week! So, THANK YOU to our Fair Board! You are the best!
A special thanks goes to Dan Bullen for pulling the concert together! While he had lots of help, it was Dan who made the right connections at the right time. He's already looking for 2015; got any suggestions? E-mail them to the fairgrounds and I will see that he gets them.
We have a new Board Member and one who has been elected (I'll explain that one). Our New Board Member is Zach Pitstick. He is from Bath Township and is excited about being on the Board. In fact, he was working with the guys even before he was elected! And our new one-that was elected, well, yes she was, but well---Gail Mueller was appointed by the Board to fulfill her father's (Bob Hutchison) seat on the Board. If she wished to retain that seat she needed to run for Beavercreek Township Board Director, which she did; won and now officially she has earned her own seat on the Board. Gail brought some great ideas to the fair this year-did any of you go into the Conservation Building? Wasn't that display she set up awesome? Zach and Gail-Officially welcome to the Greene County Board of Directors. They will be sworn in at the September 2014 meeting.
Special thanks goes to Joyce Swearingen! She has put in so many hours in the Fair Office that Wayne, her husband thinks this is her summer home. Speaking of Wayne; THANK YOU for handing out the 4-H/FFA identification this year. It is so great to always be able to count on Wayne. And my husband! Gene Pierson! THANK YOU for the hours you spent home alone while I was in the office late; and also for all the time you spent in the office helping doing everything from running errands, answering phones, selling tickets-you name it. I appreciate you Gene. Sarah Hawkins! Sarah Hawkins! There is no other lady who can type as fast as she can and organize things like Sarah. I am thankful each time she says she will be back next year! Sarah graduated from OSU this year with her Master's and now has a job in the Troy/Vandiala area. Her last words as she left the office was "IF you need anything call me"........you bet ya! Sarah! I will do that. I want to keep her forever! Keith and Barb, you did a great job raising this lady!
Thanks for visiting with me after the fair! Oh-thanks to all of you who stopped in the office to say "hi". Love all the friends the fair brings together and the memories made here on the grounds. Until next time---take time to enjoy the beautiful summer flowers! Esther
