It's Our Turn: Fair board members deserve some recognition

Email News Alerts

Another Douglas County Fair is now behind us. For many local residents, that event is one of the highlights of summer. For me, it's always been bittersweet.


I was a 4-H member for more than 10 years, so thoughts of the fair began months earlier. 4-H projects take planning, record keeping and a lot of time and hard work to complete.

Hours, days, weeks and months were spent getting projects ready for the highlight of a 4-Her's year - the county fair.
