REFLECTING......about the 2016 Greene County Fair.....what a special time it WAS---and the best is yet to come. I can say that with confidence because we are already planning to make the 2017 fair even better. How? Well, come July 30-August 5, 2017 you will have to come and visit us and see.
Many of our 4-H kids have gone on from our fair to show at the Ohio State Fair (AND WON!). When you talk to them about their projects, these kids are most excited because of what they learn while in 4-H. Reading the essays from the Scholarship applications, and the Royalty Applications, it doesn't take long to realize how much 4-H/FFA has meant to these young people! THANK YOU to all the Committees, Advisors, Volunteers and parents/grandparents for the encouragement and guidance that you have given to make our 4-H/FFA program so successful. There is no way to recognize all the hours that these wonderful people spend with our youth.
And to our Fair Board who has tough decisions to make! Criticism comes easy for many people when things do not go their way, but when asked if they would like to be on the Board to help with difficult decisions, the answer is always "NO", but they are the first ones to point a finger. I commend our Fair Board for the tireless hours they give and DO NOT get paid for any of the time spent. In addition, each Board Member must purchase a Membership Ticket just for the privilege of serving on the Board. No-we do not get in "free" to the fair.
THANK YOU to all of you who are so enthused about wearing our fair shirts-aren't they fun? We have already had requests for the 2017 shirt. Hopefully we will get them earlier so we all can wear them longer.
Most of all, I want to thank the young ladies and gentlemen who are representatives of 4-H/FFA on the Junior Fair Board. Setting an example for those who look up to you as a member of the Board is awesome. Hopefully each of you know how important it is to plant the seeds of responsibility and love of agriculture into the hearts of these "students" of yours.
As we begin a new year, planning for the fair, we hope you will do your part to be there for us as we strive to look forward into the 2017 fair season.
Events would not be possible without our many great sponsors!
