Letter to the Editor: NCW Fair a success

I would like to thank the staff and volunteers who made the NCW Fair a success this year.

The office staff and grounds volunteers kept the fair humming. As a barn superintendent, I discovered a couple of maintenance problems in the open horse stalls that were fixed immediately. The garbage crew kept everything spotless.

I appreciate the barn supervisors and volunteers also. I know how much work it is to set up, take in the entries, keep the barn or booth organized and, of course, the paperwork involved. Some of us have been doing it many years and it was good to see new, young faces working hard this year.

As an exhibitor, I did notice some of the areas had fewer exhibits. I personally know how you think you have a year to get your project done and suddenly it is a week before fair. I encourage everyone to start thinking about what they want to bring next year and get working now

The fair is one of my favorite events of the year. Thanks to all who made it possible.
