GREENVILLE —The Darke County Fair board welcomed the 2017 Darke County Junior Fair Queen and King Shelby Manning (right), of Union City, Ohio and Wyatt King, of Greenville, during its meeting July 19.
Fair Director Brian Rismiller told Molly Hunt she was a great queen, who thought outside of the box. “I will miss you,” board member Russ Bennett said.
More discussion continued about the Dog Barn at the Darke County Fair Board meeting Wednesday, July 19.
Many 4-H members came out to show their interest in and support for the project. The discussion ended in an approved motion to build a dog barn only when the 4-H members raise 50 percent ($89,000) of the projected funds, within a two-year time frame.
The board also approved the following: to allow the sale committee to hang a banner to recognize livestock buyers; to allow new voting machines to be used at the annual election, Thursday Aug. 24; to allow the motorcycle races to come to the 2018 fair; to allow a demo derby to rent the facility for a non – fair event for $20,000, to allow a tree carver to come in and carve one of the standing dead trees for $1,000; to disinfect all north barns and south horse show barns, as had been done in the past; to move all livestock unpaid buyers from 2016 off the update, and clear them from QuickBooks.
