Emcee Don Humphrey, Jr., addresses the crowd gathered at the Memorial Flag Pole on the fairgrounds for the 10th annual Veterans Recognition Ceremony. The sun shone down beautifully on this very special day. Over 46 quilts and afghans were presented during the event to area veterans and first responders who had been nominated. This marked the 10-year anniversary of the ceremony that arose out of the county fair board’s desire to honor area veterans and first responders through the quilt display at the county fair each year. The theme was “This Is My Country — Land That I Love.”
