Thanks to fair volunteers, staff

Print Article

I have many people to thank for making my attendance and volunteer services a success at our Grant County Fair.

My health is definitely not 100 percent, but I have been blessed because of many helping minds and hands. At Fair Week I did more than I thought I could because of everyone’s help.

I have judged for 4-H for many years. Last year was a challenge, so this year I was apprehensive to try. However, many 4-H staff, leaders and parents encouraged me to try. So I talked to the Grant County Fair staff. We decided to help keep my energy to do some judging, someone would pick me up in the parking lot and take me to the 4-H building. A volunteer, I think his name was David, was my angel. He was “Johnny on the Spot” when we called the Fair Office. He even stopped by occasionally to check on me!

It felt so good to be able to help 4-H boys and girls work on the 4-H motto, “To make the best better,” and it’s always nice to see the 4-Hers progress with their skills learned from previous years.

I was so happy to enjoy my successful Fair experience and want to say a special “thank you” to all who helped me attain my success.
