For many Harvey County Citizens the County Fair is the spirit of the summer. It is a time to celebrate our youth, our community and come together to recognize each other’s talents.
I am very excited to experience the fair as the 4-H Youth Development Extension Agent for Harvey County. Just like everyone’s fair experiences are different, I am positive that mine will be different than I have ever experienced before. I am looking forward to celebrating the hard work of our fairgoers, seeing the faces of our community, and experiencing the nostalgia that commences with the hot hours in the barn, smells of the food stand and flashing lights of the carnival.
As a new Extension Agent, this year will bring lots of learning experiences for me. While I have attended many county fairs, my role has been different in the past. I have been an attendee who goes to see the beautiful exhibits in the 4-H building, meet the animals in the livestock building, and maybe even enjoy a ride at the carnival. I have served as a fair judge, awarding ribbons and prizes to well deserving 4-H’ers and fair participants. As an Agent, I have enjoyed working alongside the Harvey County Fair Board to plan the best fair yet! Come and get Footloose at the Fair August 5-9, for the 128th Annual Harvey County Fair!
