The 2017 Madison County Fair has started and I wanted to give a shout out to our great Extension staff and host of volunteers! As Superintendent of the 4H and FFA Static Exhibits at the fair, most of our work goes on before the first day of the fair. Can't thank them all enough for their hard work -- Monday was judging day and it went very well -- better than I could ask for on a very busy day!!! The great things at the fair far out weigh all the other stuff -- Know you are all very appreciated!!! Go out and enjoy the fair!!!
