Where did the 2015 Fair season go? Only a few events left in this year…
I believe that all KAFHS members were stricken with the rainy night bug at least once during the performance of their local Fair. So do not feel discouraged if you were deluged on one or more night. You were not alone in that significant Fair performance issue. Review your procedures for cancelation and the management in adversity methods that your fair has. For the weather is not controllable. Hopefully the adversity will make all of us stronger in some respects. Best wishes for the next season.

The KY State Fair just concluded with record breaking attendance and a wonderful time was had by all. It makes one proud to be a part of the workings and buildup for the premier fair for our state. Your local fair provided folks to compete in the different areas of showmanship for the entertainment setting of the State fair. We can all be proud of our contribution and hope to improve for next year. Did you go to the KY State Fair? If not, make it a point to attend in 2016.

KAFHS Little Mr and Miss Pageant is a part of the opening day activities for the KY State Fair. We had 74 couples present for the competition. Adair County Fair representatives: Gabrielle Kemp and Jasper Kemp were the winning couple. Present from KAFHS member fairs were winners of the Miss Pageants up to this point in the fair season. We had about 75 young ladies there to assist in the opening ceremonies and in the Little Mr and Miss pageant. Their grace and assistance is a blessing and part of their experience as a local fair member contestant for the 2016 KY County Fair pageant in January. Wish to thank them and wish the best of luck for each in the competition to come.

The meeting of the KAFHS Board and the Miss Teen and Pre teen County Fair Pageant is scheduled for October 16 and 17, 2015 at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Louisville Ky. Make your reservations now for the crowning of both of these pageants. They are both held on same day – back to back. Make your plans to attend. For reservations visit the Crowne Plaza website.
