The fair is quickly approaching and that means we are busy planning our fair tent. We love sharing the story of agriculture with our community, and we couldn’t do that without all of you. We are once again looking for volunteers to help make our tent memorable for all who visit.
Agriculture is vital to all our lives, and it’s so important that we share that with others. Did you know that the majority of Americans are at least three generations removed from the farm? It’s so sad that so many people won’t ever experience the life that we all love.
Anyone who volunteers in the tent will receive a FREE T-shirt and a day pass ticket for entry into the fair. Tickets and T-shirts are only guaranteed for volunteers who sign up by Friday, Aug. 19 due to getting tickets and shirts distributed.
If you have volunteered in the past you know the routine. If you are new, just review the options listed and choose the time slot(s) that best fit your schedule.
