Jr. Fair preps for show

CANFIELD – The Mahoning County Junior Fair Board met at the Canfield Fairgrounds Thursday, July 23. A group photo was taken with members wearing masks and keeping social distance.

During the meeting, the board discussed how to properly social distance at meetings and during the Canfield Junior Fair and how important this will be as they move forward to plan the Junior Fair Show. Although the schedule will look very different in 2020, Junior Fair Board will still be working hard to have everything ready for the Junior Fair Livestock Shows.

Members are still brainstorming on ideas for a Social Distancing Family activity. Youth Day will still take place as scheduled with the crowning of the 4-H King and Queen and Awarding the Outstanding Youth. The 5K Rooster Run will take place as a Virtual Race this year so all participants can enjoy the flexibility of running or walking with their own comfort in mind. Sign up information can be found at runsignup.com/Race/OH/Canfield/RoosterRunwalk.

Because of the rain, a Junior Fair Board training which was to be led by Junior Fair officers was postponed to their next meeting on Thursday, Aug. 20.
