Farm Bureau says thanks

What a great celebration at the fair last weekend. Our county is fortunate to have such a fantastic fair board. Each year they seem to make the fair better and bigger.

Our county Farm Bureau especially appreciates the help and support Steve Storck and his fellow board members provided for our candidate forum. Congressman Peterson, Lee Byberg, Scott Dutcher and Jay McNamar each appreciated the opportunity to attend our county fair and speak to our citizens. Minnesota Farm Bureau President Kevin Paap enjoyed visiting our fair and acting as moderator for the forum.

Thank you, Fair patrons

The 2012 Stevens County Fair has come and gone again. The Stevens County Fairboard would like to thank all the fair patrons who came out and visited the fair. We hope you enjoyed yourself. Thank you to the commercial and food vendors who came and set up; to Family Fun Show for their excellent carnival. Thank you to the Stevens County Homemakers, the Stevens County 4-H groups, and the Open Class entrants that give us all the wonderful exhibits and animals to see. We hope you enjoyed the heritage demonstrations, along with some of the magic and musical entertainment that was funded through the Legacy Grant. To all the businesses who sponsored an event or gave a donation to the Stevens County Fair; we appreciate your gift. Without your donations we couldn't bring in the wide variety of entertainment that we do. We must not forget our Stevens County Board of Commissioners and last and far from least, the Stevens County Fairboard members and volunteers. Their many hours of behind the scenes work helped to make the fair events run very smoothly each and every day.

It takes everyone coming together to make this great event happen. Thanks again for a great fair.

We hope to see you again August 7 - 11, 2013. Follow us on Facebook, visit our website, call us at 320-589-1062, or e-mail the fair at We welcome any comments of what you would like to see again or new ideas for 2013.

Stevens County Fairboard -- Steve Storck, President; Wayne Lemmerman, Vice-President; Ryan Sleiter, Treasurer; Mary Hill, Secretary
