Our Refugio County Fair is now over for another year. The 2014 Expo Building was a complete success.
This could not have happened without the help of so many people who gave of their time and talents.
Special thank you goes to the volunteers who served as Superintendents and helpers for the different areas of the building.
Our lunch on Wednesday was once again fantastic.
A special thank you to Gerald and Melodie Friedrichs, for the generous donation of the food and preparation time.
We also had a great number of helpers during check in, judging and clean up.
A big thank you to Raul Saenz, Ruben Barrara, Jim McClain, Joe Pena and Jeb Bauer for all the help in setting up the Expo building and cleaning up and storing everything for next year.
Thanks also to Monica Flores for all her help in the Extension office.
A big thank you to the individuals and businesses who made donations to the Expo Building.
Last but not least, a very big thank you to my family. To my husband for putting up with all the hours I was busy working on paper work and running errands. To my grandson, for helping carrying in and arrange the shelving in the expo building.
To my granddaughter for the help with the goodie bags for the judges and helping assemble the recipe books. I couldn’t have done it without the two of you.
To all our participants congratulations on a job well done. We had some very beautiful items and some very delicious baked goods. Keep up the good work, we hope to see you again in March 2015.
It is not too soon to start planning your projects for next year.
If I missed someone I apologize. I also appreciate the parents and grandparents who volunteer to help and support our youth in the county.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
