County fair threatened

To the Editor:

It’s county fair time again.

The fair again has to compete with other fests in the county. When is enough enough?

The county fair has been a tradition for years. It is a showcase for the 4-H clubs of the county. It’s a place were the young can learn about agriculture and where milk comes from.

It is a place for gathering, but its future is in jeopardy because of local city events. There always seems to be some type of three-day weekend fest on the same weekend, taking away from the fair.

When will cities start to coordinate and not have an event that competes with the fair? It’s time we start supporting the county fairs since the state fair has lost interest.

Come on, people, let’s go to the fair.
