 “ I grew up going to the Coffee County Fair and every year brings back memories of those times.  It is a special thing to be part of an event that has been so important to our community for such a long time.  The fair brings us all together for fun, food, fellowship and a little friendly competition.  Its a place to celebrate our history, a harvest and our heritage.  It can also be a classroom for learning about what it takes to produce the necessities of life that we all take for granted.  At the fair, you can find all of these things wrapped into one with a ferris wheel and a funnel cake, too!”

This is myself and the always beautiful wife Tiki.  I enjoy being on the fair board as it's my way of serving our county.  I love watching the kids and the special needs group come through the barn to look at the animals.  Putting a smile on a child's face is one big reason I do this.
