This Saturday is the annual County Picnic at the fairgrounds. The main attraction is the Sierra Cascade Streetrodders Show and Shine, but there will be several food and commercial vendors too. The Quincy quilt guild will be selling tickets for their opportunity quilt, the Lions Club has their breakfast and QHS alumni will have a little get together in the Mineral Building. Footloose Dance Studio will perform right by the front gate.
The other annual event that I look forward to is the Junior Livestock small animal weigh-in. One of the first steps a 4H or FFA member takes in raising an animal for the auction, Sunday, August 12, the last day of the fair. If you want to come see the pigs, goats and sheep, come back by the livestock barns around 8am this Saturday.
It all wraps up with American Valley Speedway racing that night. They had a great turn-out at the last race, that must mean they're doing something right!! Come on out and watch race, you might get hooked.
If you like volunteering, and if you like helping out someplace fun, then you should stop by the fairgrounds and see what you can do. We need help on everything from gardening, to light construction, to organizing projects, to janitorial work, to answering phones, to clerking for judges. It really is fun and the people are all fun. Call the office and let Kathy, or me, know what you can or want to do and we will surely find a spot. Thanks in advance!
Don't forget the Children's Fair this weekend and you need to get serious about what you are going to enter into the fair. Entry deadline is July 13.
