I am writing in response to the recent articles submitted by Mr. Dickerson titled Logan County, concerning the Logan County Fair.
As an active fair board member, it concerns me that he only has time to bash the fair board, and does not know his facts! He keeps mentioning a dollar amount that is way off the amount the fair board currently has. He has been to one fair board meeting this year and seems to think he knows everything, when in reality none of his facts are current. He does not know what we have planned for this year’s fair; we are in the process of getting everything finalized to release this year’s fair agenda. In response to the fair board being a broken outfit that is very untrue.
I was one of those children who looked forward to the county fair but after many years of low attendance it was unable to continue. It has taken the community, a new fair board and the Extension Service to get it back on track.
Mr. Dickerson also mentioned that the county fair does not have a gate which is not true, I myself worked that gate at one of the events. I serve on the fair board & gladly donate my time and thoughts to help with the county fair. The fair board should not to be bashed by someone who does not even know what they are talking about. I hope that everyone will come out and support the county fair this year, July 26th thru August 2nd, and that Mr. Dickerson will see that we have been working on getting ready for this year, and we are not a group of unconcerned people.
