Fair to celebrate 100th year
Published: Saturday, August 4th, 2007
Fair to celebrate 100th... The Travis Nelson Building was one of the original exhibit buildings. For years all of the Home Arts Entries were displayed in this building. Then in the n the late 1970s, the building was remodeled by the 4-H clubs and became a club meeting place. The building was renamed in honor of Travis Nelson. About 10 years ago, the Extension clubs took on the project to raise money for a new roof for the building and fair board members gave of their time and expertise to put on a new roof. Then the Wrangler 4-H Club members and dads worked to update the bathrooms and remodel the meeting room with an improved heat system and a drop ceiling to improve acoustics. Now we are ready to show off the building, and our 100th anniversary reception is a perfect opportunity. Come one and come all to a party in the Travis Nelson Building at the fairgrounds. Help us celebrate our 100th fair. This reception will be at 5 p.m. on Aug. 15. Look for the building with the green roof. The special speaker will be Mayor Mary Mayfield. Refreshments will be provided by the Extension Association of Quay County. Come out and see the hard work of many fair board members, 4-Hers and their families, and the Extension ladies as we show off the updates to one of the original fair buildings. Wall branding for 100th... The Wranglers 4-H Club is hosting a wall branding from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Aug 11. Bring your family’s brand and help us decorate the wood around the brick wall in the Travis Nelson Building on the fairgrounds. There is no charge to put your brand on the wall. Just show up at the building with the green roof. We will be branding the wall to get ready for a reception that will be held in the building during the fair to celebrate the fair’s 100th anniversary. Fair books out, about... Bright Pink fair books are out in businesses around town or available in the Extension Office. The Quay County fair will be August 14 – 18. Be a part of the 100th Quay County Fair by entering your creations this year. Ashley Bradley designed the 2007 fair book cover commemorating the fair’s centennial.
