After celebrating the Fourth of July, many people shift their attention to fair season. People from all over the state visit their local county fairs, perhaps to enjoy a concert, indulge in fried food or to catch up with friends and neighbors.
I attended the Clark County Fair a couple weeks ago and had a great time meeting people from the district. Some of you I had seen before and others I met for the first time. Fairs also provide excellent opportunities for legislators to interact with their constituents and I appreciate those of you who stopped by to talk to me.
Sadly, George died just days before this year’s fair, and he will be missed by everyone who knew him—and there were a lot. It is only right that this year’s fair was dedicated to him.
Events like county fairs highlight people who are committed to serving others. The Clark County Fair would not be the success that it is without the volunteers who help put it on.
