A big round of congratulations is due to the Alpena County Agricultural Society for their efforts in putting on the 2012 Alpena County Fair. They played the cards dealt them very well. The leaders like Tim Beaudoin, Keith Wahoski and Jerry Bleau were all a pleasure to work with and the same for the other volunteers such as Brad, Penny, Kevin, etc.
Their attitudes, enthusiasm, community spirit and cooperation reminded me why our family moved here twenty years ago.
Also hats off to the county commission for sticking with the fair and showing the confidence in these people.
I am really looking forward to next year with the fair slotted earlier in the summer.
