Kudos To Fulton County Fair Board

To The Editor:

I feel that I need to openly express my thanks to the Fair Board for the outstanding midway at this year’s fair. To those that constantly criticize the board I ask: Did you attend the fair this year? Well, if you did not, you missed one of the nicest midways ever.

The rides, game stands and food stands were so impressive I thought we were at the York Fair. The employees were dressed in matching shirts and made a very good impression in their appearance.

And, yes, the fair board really does need to charge a fee to attend the fair as they have utilities, insurance, maintenance and upkeep of the property.

This one week of the year brings the 4-H children together to show with pride the outstanding work they have done in raising their animals. Also the other crafts and energies they put into other projects.

Let’s not forget the fair queen contest. Wow! Those two girls were not only very pretty, but their speaking talents were outstanding. It was shame that only two girls entered this year’s contest. Those two girls walked away with so many gifts that it was unbelievable. Hopefully next year there will be more girls entering. They all are winners just for entering and having the courage to speak in front of so many people.

To this day I still have my memories of my week at the fair with my heifer project. Those were some of the best days of our lives. I just ask that next year you support our county fair. My personal thanks to you all for a job well done.
