Hello to you!  Been awhile since we "chatted".  Sarah Young (who keeps me focused) reminded me that I needed to write you all and catch you up to date on the happenings at the Greene County Fairgrounds and Exposition Center  A lot has happened since last fair.  If you remember, it was announced that the Dayton Hamvention® would be calling 120 Fairground Road their new home.  While we were excited (Both the Fair Board and the Dayton Hamvention® Committees) we had no clue as to the work that would be involved.  THANK YOU to so many people from our Community who jumped right in and worked so hard to make this event so great.  We have heard nothing but good things about the residents of Xenia-how gracious they were to "strangers" and how warmly they were greeted.  THANK YOU to Township and County ladies and gentlemen who, working with us, were just great!  I could go on and on because I am overwhelmed at how everything came together and this Dayton Hamvention® was great!  Even through the rain, mud, and first year "boo-boos" we have gotten so many positive comments.  At the resent, we have a 3 year contract with them, and hopefully it will result in more years for Dayton Hamveniton® calling our facility HOME. 

Have you seen our new fair book?  Sarah Young typed every word of it.  She did a fantastic job with inserting some new pages, and-well-I just have to say, this lady has more talent than anyone can imagine.  While Sarah and I were doing the Hamvention camping and food vendors, Joyce Swearingen was busy with handling the fair reserved parking and fair camping, as well as all the other "stuff" that just pops up (including folding fair shirts!)  Thank you Joyce! 

Our fair this year will not host a concert; rather, Zach Pitstick has invited on Tuesday evening at 7:00 p.m. a rodeo straight from Waynesville, Ohio.  If you have questions regarding anything about the rodeo, Zach can be reached at: mcpitstick@gmail.com

At the office we do have fair shirts; fair books (also available at the public libraries); and schedule foldouts with the week's fair schedule.  Oh yes, we do have pens as well that the FFA Alumni was gracious enough to order and pay for so that we could share them with you.

We are so excited about the fair!  So are the 4-H/FFA kids; please support them as they prepare their projects for the fair.  Buyers! If you need information regarding receiving a bidding number-or how to bid- call the office and Sarah Young can answer your question.  If she doesn't know, she can find out the answer for you and call back.  937-372-8621.  Since we have two Sarah's working in the office (Sarah Young and Sarah -Hawkins-George) just ask for Sarah Young. 

Been refreshing to chat with you!  Don't forget to pick up your fair book at the office and think about exhibiting at the fair this year. All the details are in the fair book.  See you soon-talk to you soon-until then, stop and have some ice cream with a friend.  Esther
