From Sam Kaderly, Green County Fair Board PresidentIt's the first of July, and 563 junior exhibitors and 120 open class exhibitors are getting their projects ready for the fair. Over the last 156 years, many memories have been made at the county fair, but what is the future for the fair?Because of hard economic times, many of the fairs in Wisconsin are operating in the red, including the Green County Fair. Let's ask the question: Who would miss the fair if it wasn't there?First, the exhibitors, who wait each year to show their projects and engage in the friendly competition against their friends.Then come the service clubs who, each year, do a major part of their fundraising at the fair.
