County fair board director seat opens up

The Board of Directors for the Clermont County Fair is made up of representatives from each township plus five At Large positions. Since one of the At Large positions recently opened up, the Clermont Co. Agricultural Society is currently taking applications to fill that position. To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years of age, a resident of Clermont County, and willing to join the Clermont County Agricultural Society. The person selected will be appointed to fill the seat until an election is held during the fair in July.

The winner of that election will then finish out the three year term of the At Large #1 seat.

All interested parties should contact the fair in writing or by email. Please tell a little about yourself and why you are interested in the position. Include also your name, address, phone number, and email, if one exists. Send letters of interest to CCAS, PO Box 369, Owensville, OH 45160, Attention: Todd Slone, President.

The deadline for submission is Wednesday, Feb. 14th, 2018. All applicants must be willing to be interviewed for the position.

The Fair Board normally meets on the second Wednesday of each month. In addition to the main responsibility of planning and implementing the fair each summer, they maintain the grounds and make it available for many community and private events throughout the year.

The Board is looking for someone who is willing to attend the meetings and has a desire to work with the Board to make the fair the best it can be.
