It is 2015! A new fair / show season is in the planning stages. Excitement is infectious. The season is coming. Is your community ready for this year's show?
The 2015 KAFHS Convention and Trade Show held at the Galt House in January was exciting and very informative. All members in attendance enjoyed the sessions. Business and planning for 2015 show season got serious. Can I book? Will this work at our fair? Some questions floating around the Trade Show floor. The Trade show was busy with displays of vendors, acts, services, and just members looking at the booths. Is your date open for our fair? Can this activity draw and entertain? These questions were heard frequently and decisions occurred or considered right there on the floor. Membership excitement for the new show year was wonderful to see. Make your plans to attend the 2016 KAFHS convention and Trade Show in January of next year. But first, let's have a wonderful 2015 show season.

Closing the 2015 Convention and Trade Show was the crowning of KAFHS's 2015 Miss Kentucky County Fair. This was the 60th pageant presented by this Association. Bria Hayes representing Hardin County was crowned at the close of the pageant. Ninety girls were competing for the crown. It was a night of beautiful elegant pageantry. I had a front row seat. Where were you? See you at the pageant for 2016.

It is never too early to consider joining in on the festivities and planning for the 2016 Convention and Trade show. The Spring meeting is the beginning for this effort. KAFHS President Mike Poynter and the Lincoln County Fair Board invite you to join us for a weekend of ambiance, discussion, and food, May 8 and 9, at Danville Quality inn. Make your reservations now while you are thinking about attending. You are welcome and requested to attend. Sporting activity (golf) and touring of historic Danville are on the list of member activities currently. But the list is still in the planning stages. Make your plans to attend. It is an informative weekend.

Well, not enough can be said at this point. Planning and decisions for your communities 2015 show is on your shoulders. So carry the load and make it happen. Create excitement and joy for your community. Wish all the best. Let's take this fair season to heights that are unimaginable.
