Fun at the
Great Darke County Fair
By Bob Robinson
The 160th Great Darke County Fair is now in the history books. I hope
all of you enjoyed it as much as I did. I’m slowing down this year…
only made it seven out of the nine days, but I covered a lot of ground,
I saw a lot of “my” kids from Greenville Schools and Edison State… kids
I worked with years ago and kids I worked with last year, as well as
old friends and new. I got to see a special young lady, Jordan, and her
fiancé, Keith. Jor was my Teen Editor at The Daily Advocate longer ago
than I like to remember. I also saw another young lady I worked with,
Tiffany, one of my Teen Advocates and a stalwart supporter and helper
when I ran for Commissioner in 2008.
It was great seeing everyone; that’s one of the things our fair is for.
Recently posted on the Community Events Photo Gallery were my “Fun at
the Fair” photos, sets one and two. Adults and kids just having a good
time. Prior to that were my Poultry and Livestock photos, sets one and
two. These kids worked hard on their projects. Some got ribbons and
trophies, some didn’t, but they all learned and will use their new
knowledge to improve next year.
One recent set of photos is a series from the Tractor and Truck Pulls
by CNO Reporter Photographer Dylan Knoop. Coming soon will be the
Varsity Cheer photos from CNO Sports Editor George Starks.
While you’re at it, the following are worth another look:
Little Mr. and Miss Darke County Fair from Elaine Bailey
A variety of cheer photos – Pee Wee and Junior High – from George and
me, as well as my Varsity Cheer set. My pics include a lot of human
interest photos you might enjoy.
Check them out. They are CNO memories of this year’s Great Darke County
