Due to the novel coronavirus and it ability to rapidly spread, many normal summer events were canceled this year. The Linn County Fair was one of those events. For the first time since it has been held at the Central City fairgrounds, there was no Linn County Fair. However, there were still 4-H and FFA members who raised their fair projects.
The 4-H/FFA youth continued to learn and apply their knowledge and efforts to gain experience with their projects and were able to “market” their projects with the help of the Linn County Fair Board. A special thanks to Hoge Auctioneering LLC for conducting an “online” auction for the youth. Interested persons were able to view fair projects and contribute to the members by bidding. Day Rettig Martin, P.C. was happy and proud to continue its support of the fair participants and was successful in winning the bids on four entries.
Day Rettig Martin, P.C. has added ribbons from four local 4-H members to its growing collection. As Covid-19 cases in Iowa continue to rise, we are glad to do our part to help our Linn County Community. We are confident that through the efforts of the Linn County Fair Board, the Iowa Extension Service, the youth participants, and caring members of the community, the Linn County Fair will be back next year better than ever.
