This year’s Annual Fair Premium Book dedication is to our rabbit and poultry
department superintendents - Ina Mae & Harold Schmidt and Gloria & Wilfred Shaw.
Ina Mae and Harold have worked tirelessly to fill the rabbit area with many
different and beautiful rabbits. Now retired from the department, they have
successfully passed the torch to their son and daughter-in-law. Thank you for
all your hard work!
Gloria and Wilfred Shaw have worked to bring so many beautiful birds to the poultry
department for the public to view. Gloria and Wilfred, Ina Mae and Harold together have decorated to make this a
building beautiful to enter.
The directors thank you all for your many hours of service.
