LETTER: The future of the fair
We have just put our 2018 Carlton County Fair in our rearview mirror, yet now is the time to focus and plan ahead for 2019.
I had the privilege of working at the fair for 17 years — 15 of which I was superintendent of the home activities department (canning, baking, needlecraft, hobbycraft) and consider it a highlight of my life.
I loved it, with all the talented people in our county who exhibited, meeting exhibitors, seeing their exhibits on a one-to-one basis, then to witness them being judged, and awarded ribbons, was my honor.
Yet now, exhibits are way down. We can change that.
I invite you to exhibit in a division. It's fun and can be rewarding. Will you be one who attends and enters the 2019 fair? The fair needs you. We need the fair!
See you there? Thank you!
