Hi everyone! It's been awhile since we've "talked" through my "from Esther's Desk", First of all, I want to ask you, if you are a member of the Greene County Agricultural Society that is, "Did you get our first newsletter we sent you a week ago?" How did you enjoy it? We are going to be offering our members a chance to purchase advance tickets for grandstand events we have during the fair so you don't have to stand in line. Plus, we hope that we can let you know in advance of any news that might be forthcoming from the fairgrounds.
Amy Test has lined up some different entertainment...Touch (who appeared on National Television on the Voice) will be here after the calf scramble on Sunday evening; Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers will be here on Thursday evening (July 31st) ; of course Xenia's Got Talent will be continued on our 175th anniversary of the fair and well......Amy didn't want me to reveal all the entertainment yet, but she is shopping BIG.......
If you are coming into the fairgrounds after December 1st, use the front gate of the fairgrounds. Many people are using our fairgrounds to speed around coming in the front gate and going out the back gate and that's not good when a horse is trying to cross the road to the track. So, cement barriers will be placed at the Catherine Street gate and everyone will need to use the front gate to enter and exit (except during the fair).
We are pleased to have a new Board Member beginning December 16th when Gail Hutchison will be sworn in to fill the Beavercreek Township seat that became vacant with the death of her father. Gail brings to the Board lots of 4-H knowledge as well as being an exhibitor at the fair and the great thing is that she has the support of her family as they carry on work with the Greene County fair.
Dan Bullen is taking his job of President seriously! He has spent many hours seeking answers to questions as they come up; so if you see Dan give him a word of encouragement. Bob King, is Vice President and he spends about as much time at the fairgrounds as he does at home. He is the fixer-upper her at the fairgrounds and there isn't much he can't do. Than you, Bob for being as close as a phone call away when a decision needs to be made with regard to maintenance on the fairgrounds!
As our Board works together to present to Greene County the 175th fair this year from July 27August 2, 2014 we ask that if you would like --to help us by being a Sponsor of the fair; or with the Auxiliary Committee, or being a volunteer, please call the fair office or e-mail me and I will see that the right person gets your request. Working together makes for a positive attitude. Let's go for it.
Thanks for visiting with me; since I last spoke with you, I'm another year older and more grey hairs on my head. Blessings to all of you.
