Dear Editor,

The Paulding County Fair 2020 is now in the books.

The fair was not traditional in a sense of the word, but exhibitors finished their projects as they would have. I wish that the community could have witnessed 4H and FFA youth as they brought their projects to the fairgrounds on Thursday and Saturday. The pride they showed, as their well-groomed livestock projects were unloaded was amazing! It is true, these youth are our leaders of tomorrow.

The livestock sale would have occurred on Saturday. As always, the weather was hot and sultry – and on any other livestock sale day, the show arena would have been full as businesses would have been on hand to bid on the projects completed. This year the arena was empty.

You have the opportunity to complete this year’s fair for these kids. A fund has been set up at Paulding County Area Foundation for tax deductible donations. Donations can be made to Paulding County Area Foundation with Livestock Sale in the memo line and mailed to 101 E. Perry Street Paulding Ohio by June 30.
