While the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds sits quietly this week because of the fair’s cancellation earlier this year, would-be exhibitors are still making sure their projects are moving forward.
Jeremy Schlies of the Bolt Buccaneers is earning ribbons with his dairy cows, capturing a Grand Champion ribbon at last month’s District 7 Wisconsin Junior Holstein Association show. While it is nice to be able to exhibit this summer, he wishes he had one more year at the Kewaunee County Fair.
“Tiana” the dairy heifer will likely be too big for her when Pilsen Skylighters member Molly Salentine gets into the show ring for the first time as a junior exhibitor next year. She was looking forward to competing with the older kids like her big sister Megan.
Champion Sparkplugs member Savannah Jandrin has had success in the exhibit hall in recent years, especially when it comes to her drawing and photography. Though she is not entering any contests this summer, she has been working on perfecting her skills ahead of next year’s fair.
Like over 50 others across the state this summer, the Kewaunee County Fair hopes to return to its full glory next year.
