Notes in November

Welcome to November!

As we start this month of gratitude, I wanted to express my sincere thanks to the Parents, Committees, Senior Fair Board and Members of the Stark County Junior Fair Program.  We had a fabulous fair this year and you all made my first year as Coordinator much easier than I could have ever anticipated!

This month at the fairgrounds we are working on revising project rules, electing new officers, planning and coordinating educational opportunities and making repairs to the grounds.  I have been updating the calendar with meetings and events.  If you would like to attend a Senior Fair Board meeting, Livestock Committee meeting or Junior Fair Board meeting to see what goes on behind the scenes, you will find information on the calendar.  Meetings are open to the public, please feel free to stop in and see what life is like behind the scenes.

I will not be holding regular office hours during the off-season, but am available via email at  I am at the fairgrounds for all committee meetings.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!



“Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.” ~ Ralph Marston


November Funnies! 🙂
