Also, at our June 25TH meeting our ride committee presented a proposal from Durant Amusements and Jessop Amusements to allow Jessop to join together and fill Durant’s contract (under Durant’s supervision) and have rides at our 2020 fair. The Board voted unanimously to allow this change and have a limited number of rides this year.
Other entertainment that will be on the grounds; Dennis Beach – chain saw carver, Lumberjack show, and the petting zoo.
Events that have been cancelled are as follows; Wood County Youth Parade, Cheerleading competition, Truck and Tractor pulls, Draft Horse and Pony Pulls, Emily Ann Roberts free concert, roaming magician, bake show competition, pie auction, and homemade wines and brew. There will not be a free tent, with the cancelation of the Committee on Ageing’s events there is not a need for one; however, the free admission for Seniors and Veterans will continue on their respective days at the fair.
The Junior Fair Livestock Sale will be entirely online this year. Each youth will have one “page” on the site to display all their market livestock projects. The format for this year will be entirely donations to each youth, it will not be an auction type format. The details about the site, and instructions to register and use it will be forth coming. It will be distributed by the youth and available on our web-site. The feeder calf sale will be held as normal on Saturday morning.
In other reports to the Board –
It was announced that the installation of fiber optic lines by Amplex was nearing completion, that the safety and security committee had another scheduled meeting with the sheriffs office on June 29th, and that the Junior Fair Board had begun work days held every Saturday morning, and there would be a scheduled joint meeting of both JFB and SFB livestock committees on July 16.
The Board was reminded to contact their golf cart sponsors and discussed trash removal for the fair.
