 PRESIDENTS MESSAGE

 

     Come one, come all and join us for the 142nd Glencoe Fair! As this year’s agricultural society president, I would like to invite you and your family to come out and enjoy every single day of the fair. Our traditional fall fair flair continues but we’ve introduced some exciting changes to incorporate this year’s theme of “Under the Big Top”. Young or old, male or female, take some time to browse the fairbook and see all the potential classes to enter. The possibility for creativity is endless, take the leap and show us your talents by participating as an exhibitor this year.

 

     The entertainment line-up is jam packed all weekend including the demolition derby, ball tournament, strolling entertainment acts, parade, vendor displays, free kids activity zone with Team T&J, agricultural shows and animals plus an amazing concert featuring the Mudmen to close out the fair….and that is just a little taste of what is in store! 

 

     We have also made some significant changes this year including a new weekend admission pass to the fair with an unbeatable price, a live pie auction Friday evening, a 50/50 draw that’s sure to have an awesome payout and a brand new kids agility challenge on Sunday with prizes. Some other exciting improvements to the fair include the exhibit building remaining in place all weekend long for your viewing enjoyment and the junior fair prize money being available for pick-up Sunday right at the fair.

 

     I’ve heard the adage “it takes a village to raise a child” and if that is the case, it takes an army to organize a fair. Our army of volunteers have been hard at work for months putting in countless hours of their time to put together the Glencoe Fall Fair. When you see a fairboard member at the fair, please take a moment and say thanks! I’d also like to send a HUGE thank you to all of the sponsors and donors who support the fair and agricultural society financially throughout the entire year. Without your generosity it would be simply impossible to do what we do, THANK YOU!

 

Cheers to another great fair weekend,

Jeremy Gough
