Honor Fair Board members at the Story County Fair

Help celebrate as this year’s fair organizers honor former and present fair board members at the 2016 Story County 4-H Youth Fair.

Fair board members work hard alongside Extension staff to make the county fair a success. This happens at meetings throughout the year, plus hours of work preparing for and carrying out the fair.

The 4-H History Committee has gathered the names of board members since 1940. A printed program will include all the board members’ names and years of service. Story County residents may have a past or present relative or friend who was on the fair board. They are invited to come and honor those who have supported the county fair during its previous years. One member started serving on the board in 1949. That is 67 years ago, and he served for 17 years. His family hopes he will be able to come, as do fair organizers.

Past fair board members will be honored at a 4-H Reunion on Sunday, July 24, at 2:15 p.m.in Christy 4-H Hall in Nevada. The program features the 4-H Hall of Fame honoree, the 4-H Alum of the year and a 4-H’er. The Story County 4-H Foundation will recognize donors, and introduce scholarship recipients and grant recipients.
