Help plan the county fair

Archuleta County is looking for people to join the Fair Board to help plan the 2011 fair, to be held the first weekend in August.

There will lots of new and exciting things planned as well as the return of many old favorites for this years’ fair.

Some activities where you can help include: Education Tent, Lee Sterling Chili Cookoff, Entertainment, Advertising, Sponsors and Fair Royalty.

The Fair Board will continue to emphasize the importance of the roots of our fair, which are 4-H and our Western Heritage. We will always be committed to this priority and, at the same time, we are also dedicated to meeting the needs of our growing community.

If you are interested in helping with the Archuleta County Fair, contact Terry at 264-2388.
