Winneshiek Co-op manager Doug VanSloten presented members of the Fillmore County Fair Board with a check for $5,000 on Wednesday, July 9.
As hundreds of Fillmore County residents came together in Harmony last week for the annual Relay for Life, there were moments of remembrance, recognitions of caring, celebrations of life and determinations to fight back against cancer.
As the week of the Fillmore County Fair draws near, families all over the county scramble to make sure everything is done right for their projects. Members of local 4-H clubs make sure their animals are trained, clean and ready to go and are preparing to make the transit from home to the fairgrounds as simple as possible.
As the Fillmore County Fair approaches, families throughout the area are busy preparing projects for judging and 4-H promotion. Many in the county have followed the example set by their parents and grandparents, carrying on a strong tradition of involvement and leadership at the local level.
