Business Spotlight

The Business Spotlight is on the Graham County Fair Association

The Hill City Area Chamber of Commerce  would like to express their appreciation to the Graham County Fair Board and all of the men and women who helped to make the fair this year such a success. The grandstand events, indoor and outdoor exhibits and the livestock of all kinds that were on display were all outstanding.

After attending one of their monthly Board meetings I discovered how this is a year-round project to raise money and put the county fair together. They struggle with all of the ups and downs like any other event but always seems to pull it together flawlessly. I asked them a few questions and this was their response:

Q: How do you do it?

A: It takes Graham County, the local businesses and the people to sponsor this event and they step up to the plate in a big way.

Q: What were the highs and the lows this year?

A: That’s easy, the highs were the great weather, the great food, the rodeo royalty, the comradery among contestants, the competitive and commercial exhibits, the volunteers, the livestock and the entertainment.  The 4-H raised enough money to build a new small animal building.  Tate Tremblay won the Agriculture Challenge of Champions and went on to the Kansas State Fair to win a $2,000 scholarship to the college of his choice.

The lows, every year the expenses go up.

 Q: Do you have fund raisers going on during the year?

A: Yes, our next fund raiser is the Mountain Oyster feed on November 8th, 2014, pheasant opening day.  It will start at 5:30 p.m. and costs $12.00 per person.

Q: Tressie Mitzner, Do you have some 4-H facts?

A: Yes, I have some fun facts.

· 748: Number of 4-H projects exhibited at the  Graham County Fair.

· 264: Number of open class projects exhibited at the Graham County Fair.

· 85: 4-H members enrolled in the Graham County 4-H program. 

· 20: New 4-H members that joined Graham County 4-H Clubs this 4-H year. 

· 30: 4-H project that youth can enroll in. There’s no doubt youth will find something they are interested in.  Projects range from traditional foods and nutrition and livestock to robotics, citizenship and performing arts!

· 4: Head Heart Hands and Health-what the 4-H’s are all about.

· 3: Community 4-H Clubs in Graham County: Happy Crickets, Spring Creek and Solomon Valley.

· 1: Goal “To Make the Best Better”

 

The greatest thing about 4-H is that it is geared to be family oriented.  In our busy society we often miss spending quality time as a family unit but 4-H can bring families together to enjoy activities they are all passionate about.

 

Q: Do you realize that you have only 296 days until the 2015 Graham County Fair?

A: It’s hectic already!

Our thanks go to the Fair Board Members: Rod Belleau, Kathy Hofstetter, Elaine McKeever, Pam Keith Travis Bryant, Kay Parks, Kendra Yoder, Vernie Riedel, Nathan Hart, Jay Nickelson, Bryce Schneider, Preston Dreiling, Ben Michael, Brandon Dinkel and Sage Tremblay.
