Last year the Agricultural Society had a tree planting project to replant some trees on the fairgrounds. There were 11 trees purchased from Brad's Greenhouse and planted last fall. The trees faired a lot better than I did last winter and all 11 are doing well. On July 12, 2014 a Saturday at 10:00 A.M. on the fairgrounds, we are going to have a dedication ceremony to thank the 11 donors who made it possible. They are: 1.Eastern Local Schools; 2. Southern Hills Career and Technical Center; 3. The Georgetown Marble and Granite Company; 4.Paul Hall and Associates; 5.Tecumseh Buildings Inc.; 6.Brown Co. Seniors Club; 7. Brown County Press; 8. Brown Co. Horseman's Association; 9.Shawna and Tim McKinley; 10. Orville Whalen for Marjorie Whalen; 11. Dennis and Lottie Broughton and family.
Let's get started planning the Little State Fair. We went to Columbus again for the Ohio Fair Manager Association convention. Three days of classes on different problems, new laws to understand, and suggestions on improving our fair. While going around and talking to different vendors my wife got to shake hands with Arnold Schwarzenegger. He was in Columbus for his Iron Man show and stopped by to see the Convention Center. As he was leaving someone behind me said ( I'll be back) and got a big laugh from everyone. The Fair Manager's want to thank Mac Tool for their donation of a tool box and the Brown Co. Bee Keepers for their basket of honey products.
Charlie was a man that had a passion for life. Always with a smile and there to help in whatever way he could. . He was a school teacher for 37 years, retiring from Williamsburg Local School in 1997. He was a member of the Fairview Church and the Farm Bureau.
He was a true fan of the UC Bearcats, his grandchildren’s biggest fan and the Friday night chauffer for the dinner group. Charlie’s passion for The Belgian Draft Horse, shared by Amy and Jeff and other members of the family and friends, was visible to all, especially at the Brown County Fair. Saturday at the Brown County Fair was a day that he treasured and looked forward to year after year. It meant a day spent with those beautiful Belgian Horses, family, friends and exhibitors at his favorite county fair. Clean’ em up, put on the harness, hook’em and drive those Belgians, that kind of day was a day that Charlie truly enjoyed.
In Charlie’s memory, we the ones that share his passion of the draft horse, will drive on.

This year starts out with Tuesday evening entertainment that includes Chris Higbee and The Kentucky Headhunters then ends on Saturday with our Talent Show. I still can remember that young man from Chicago singing Opera to a stunned full house in the Danny Gray Building a couple years back. It has been a very successful addition to the Brown Co. Fair. The Entertainment Schedule was completed by Bob Hardyman.
