Jr. Fair News and Forms
We are planning some special events for the 2022 Fair. We do know that the animals will arrive on Tuesday instead of Wednesday this year. Wednesday will be devoted to celebrating the 200th anniversary with special events and activities. There will be no charge to come to the fair on Wednesday. The Junior Fair shows will begin on Thursday, as usual and continue for the rest of fair.
This year’s Junior Fair theme is: Stitching Together 200 Years of Memories with Junior Fair.
We are hoping to invite all the previous kings and queens back for this year’s fair. We have addresses for the more recent royalty, but information becomes sketchy for anyone before 2000. If you have addresses for those kings and queens who reigned prior to 2000, please call or email the information.

Each coordinator will serve for a term of three years, with approximately 1/3 of the coordinators potentially being changed each year. This is to improve the program by making sure we have the best people in place to assist the members, advisors, and parents in the activities of Junior Fair.
If you, or anyone you know, is interested in serving as a coordinator, please pass this application on.
If you have any questions, please contact Jan Jackam at 440.834.1358.
