Another fair in the books

July 26, 2015
Estherville News

The 2015 Emmet County Fair was another one for the books as parents, kids, volunteers and ISU Extension and Outreach staff celebrated the hard work given by all throughout the year.

It is sad to say goodbye to long time Youth Coordinator Marcy Sander, who has given her all year after year to make sure all the 4-H events are successful. Many are grateful for her contribution and as you say goodbye, you can look forward to the dedication and hard work of her replacement Kollette Tankersley.

Along with Sander's hard work, are the many volunteers who dedicate their time to ensure the fair goes on without difficulty. It is thanks to these folks, that people can look forward to having a great time at the fair time and time again.

And the fair would not be the wonderful fair it is without the hard work of each 4-H'er and each FFA member who works throughout the year to prepare their projects and livestock for judging at the fair.

The showmanship the kids show in the ring as well as the compassion shown to each other in and out of the show ring is priceless. The lessons and friendships taken away each year from the fair will help to better prepare them for life as well as give them memories that will last a lifetime.

As another fair ends, 4-H and FFA members start anew as they begin to plan for next year's fair.

It is yet another example of the compassionate and driven community that Emmet County residents are fortunate to be a part of.
