It is a new year.
2011 is exciting for the Fowlerville Family Fair and the Fowlerville Agricultural Society! This will mark our 125th year and we will be celebrating that during the Fair in July. Speaking of that you must know that the fair dates have change slightly. Fair week this year is July 25-30, 2011.

New for 2011...
We have two new Board of Directors! Both have been involved with the fair previously in some way shape or form. Sean Dunleavy and Cindy Salfate were both voted in at the general Annual Membership Meeting on November 10, 2010. Sean has two children that are in 4-H and is very familiar with the "Fair Scene". Cindy was the 2009 Fowlerville Homemaker of the Year, and is the current Michigan State Homemaker of the Year. In 2010 she took on the task of coordinating our ladies day and the Homemaker competition. She also is the current Secretary of our Historical Society, and is a major help in starting a new festival to be held here in September (more to come on that).

Another new besides dates, is Skerbeck Carnival will be the new carnival this year. The carnival company is a Michigan based company out of Escanaba, MI. They employ Michigan residents, and travel within the Michigan state. We are excited to have them.

The Fairboard and staff will be heading to the annual MAFE convention next weekend. We are in hopes of finding good entertainment for you all for Fair Week.

With this Blog I am in hopes that atleast once a week post what is happening here at the Fairgrounds. We are even working in the winter to bring you the new and wonderful. Please feel free to comment and leave ideas for us. We are here for you!

Sincerely Yours,
Fowlerville Agricultural Society
