Remarks were given by Rick Hull,Michelle Shaw, and Les Spickard as they addressed the grandstand entertainment, livestock shows, and Rock Barn entries.The fair is July 30th through August 3rd.

Hull also discussed the decision to allow beer sales in the grandstand area only, noting that in visits with other communities, it produced  additional revenues. Hull explained more revenues are needed to provide what he called bigger and  better entertainment at the fair in future years. Hull said ID’s will be checked and only persons with specially designated armbands will be able to
purchase beer. Law enforcement and other personnel will be present to monitor the sales which are restricted to the only the grandstand area. He added no one will be allowed to bring coolers into the grandstand area, including the pits during the racing and demolition derby.

A new event this year at the North Central Missouri Fair will be a baby show the morning of Saturday August 3rd at the courtyard. The event is sponsored by the Trenton FFA. Children ages newborn to four years will be eligible to participate. Boys and girls are to be judged together. There’s a one dollar entry fee. Trophies will be given for the first, second, and third-place winners. All participants receive ribbons. The FFA Chapter plans to use proceeds from the baby show toward the purchase of diapers for families in the Trenton area.

Entries are needed for the July 30th fair parade. It will travel the usual parade Route in Trenton starting at 5:30 that evening. Entries are requested to contact the Trenton area chamber of commerce by the deadline of July 26th so that numbers can be assigned. The theme is “Agriculture, Past, Present and Future. Thank a farmer.” Entries are to be in line for judging by 5 o’clock that Tuesday evening.

During the business portion of the Rotary meeting, members voted to make a one thousand dollar contribution to the NCMC Named Scholarship Program. The funds will be added to the Charles Holmes- Rotary Club Scholarship that’s awarded annually to a high school senior planning to attend North Central Missouri College in Trenton.
