Watching Channel 12 weather on April 1st, everyone was wishing Tim Hendricks a Happy Birthday. My thoughts were, that was a perfect Birthday for a weatherman. He has fooled us more this year than any I can remember. April 2 my wife called me a nut case because I mowed our backyard before it rained. Did it need it, probably not, but it looks nice right now.
On March 30th some of the director's, including my wife and I went to Washington Court House. They were having a district meeting for the Ohio Fair Managers Association. This is the last meeting before the Fair season starts. We heard about some new rules pertaining to rides and the inspections before the fair begins. One gentleman explained again about the rules for petting zoos and the requirement for hand washing stations at all barns where animals are housed for the fair. Indian Springs Winery sent a basket with wine, glasses, and honey as a door prize which was very nice. We want to thank Vern and Joy Creighton and their family at Indian Springs Winery.
The fair board will select the winner on the basis of the drawing. (Each entry will be numbered and the judges will not know who submitted the drawing until after the decision of the winning artwork has been made.)

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.
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.
